You might think this is just an excuse to show some photos of adorable puppies.
So? You might be right.
On March 23, we used National Puppy Day as our reason to promote the health benefits that come to puppy owners.
For example, if you have a puppy, you’ll be taking a lot of walks and that’s great for your health. Walking helps you maintain a healthy weight and strengthen bones and muscles. If you have chronic illnesses, like diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure, walking can help you manage your condition.
Puppies are also great for emotional support and fellowship. Puppies, known for unconditional love, can’t help but make people feel happier. The slogan for National Puppy Day sums it up: “No love like puppy love.”
