Reasons Why You Should Consider Owning A Dog
A dog will always be loyal to you
Dogs can teach us how to forgive
Dogs are not perfect (but then again, who is). They will have accidents on your carpet; they will chew something they were not supposed to etc. However, as dog owners, you will see that these events are petty in the grand scheme of life, which may help you see how petty the offences you harbor in other matters truly are in the grand scheme of life.
Dogs brighten an empty home
Dogs teach responsibility
A clean floor

A dog can be a huge source of inspiration
A dog knows how you’re feeling
Dogs treat you like family
You will never eat alone
A dog can protects you
A dog can be trained
This is more of a cool factor, but the fact remains that dogs are very trainable animals. You can train them to dance, spin, speak, rollover, get you a soda can, etc. You want an entertainment showpiece for your party? Train your dog to do some simple tricks and you’ll own the limelight (actually your dog will).
Dogs help us become more social
Do you feel like you have a problem being social? Maybe you are a bit introverted and you want to be a bit more extroverted. You are in luck, studies show that dog owners tend to be more social than people who don’t own dogs. This is due to the fact that dogs create a perfect conversation piece making it easier to strike a conversation with just about anyone.

I am the proud owner of an adopted Greyhound and let me tell you, it is one the best decisions I have ever made in my life. She has been a huge source of comfort, laughter, and overall peace to me (to the point where I wonder, why doesn’t everyone adopt one)? Now you could argue that my scenario is unique, but when you realize how amazing dogs are, you’ll see that my scenario is not unique at all. So I hope that these 25 reasons why you should consider owning a dog compels you to go out and adopt (notice I did not say buy) an awesome companion.
