Pet Parents Are Happier And Healthier

Toby the Traveling Terrier received this cool shipment of treats from the folks at Milk-Bone!

Milk-Bone sends Toby a gift basket.

Toby treats!

Not only did he get MilkBone Brushing Chews, which he needed, loved and promptly buried in the yard, but he also got MilkBone Good Morning Treats and some pup toys and accessories. Toby loves the treats and looks forward to them after our daily walks. They are actually vitamins, so he only gets one each day.

According to “MilkBone Human-Canine Health Study” — a survey of 3,000 U.S. dog parents conducted by MilkBone brand dog treats (in partnership with Learndipity Data Insights) — humans and dogs positively impact the health of one another, from morning routines to physical fitness. I’ve heard other studies report that people with pets live longer, too. Personal experience with Toby has already got me walking more regularly with fewer missed days than before he joined the family last year.

Some reported benefits to human health from the study showed:

45% of dog parents report being “active, fit, and healthy” versus 29% of non-dog parents.

44% of dog parents have a “healthy structure and daily routine” – like for morning vitamins – compared to 33% of non-dog parents.

51% of dog parents say they get more exercise because of their dog — but 1 out of 3 pet parents wish their dog would get more physical activity.

55% of dog parents say their lives are “full of happiness and joy” compared to 39% of non-dog lovers.

54% of dog parents report “feeling loved” while only 35% of non-dog parents do.

57% of dog parents who also have children involve the kids in their doggy caring care routines, with most reporting that it teaches them good life habits and responsibility.

Pretty cool, huh? If you are concerned about your dog’s health and wellness, you can learn more about the benefits of Milk-Bone Good Morning Treats here. You can also visit Milk-Bone’s Amazon Store using our affiliate link. They have some fun branded doggy swag for sale online, too.
