Dogs can be the perfect weight-loss companions!

Studies show that owning a dog can help you lose weight.

First, dogs can increase your physical activity.

A Canadian study on dog owners found that people who had dogs walked an average of 300 minutes per week, while people who did not have dogs only walked an average of 168 minutes per week.

Second, dogs are great social support. Unlike your human workout buddy, dogs are almost always excited to get some physical activity.

As an added bonus, pet ownership is proven to improve overall health and well-being. It has been linked to lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure and reduced feelings of loneliness and depression.

So, dog ownership can help you lose weight by increasing your physical activity and providing great social support along the way!
