Dogs Are Always Happy To See You

Starting off with one we all love and know, dogs are always happy to see you. Whether you've been at work all day or you walked out of the house to get the mail, dogs greet you with the same enthusiasm almost every time. Name one person who literally jumps and wiggles their butt every time you walk in the door...no one? That's what we suspected and which is why 'always happy to see you' is on our list!



Dogs Are Very Cute

You have the cutest dog, right? We think so too. Every time we walk by a dog, it puts a smile on our face because they are just too cute! The way they sit or sploot takes our heart away, and we can't help but audibly say "awww." Look at how adorable India (@indiacavalierslife) and you might have already commented how cute she is. This is why making us say "aww" 30 times a day is another reason why (in our opinion) dogs make the best pets!

Dogs Make Great Cuddlers

Long days can take a toll on us physically and mentally, but our dogs are always there to cuddle up next to us and ensure we get the adequate serotonin that we need. Shay (@shaythedood) is always giving cuddles when needed! Good cuddlers are one of the most important reasons on our list.

Dogs Keep You Active

Because dogs need routine exercise, they inevitably keep us active, unlike cats, rabbits, or birds. Staying active is good for our health, which is why we included 'dogs keep us active' on our list of why dogs are the best pets.

Dogs Exude Positive Vibes

We all have bad days here and there, but when you have a dog by your side, they can help you get your positive vibes back. Petting your dog actually does produce serotonin that helps us feel happy.


Dogs Make Us Laugh

Dogs are goofy and always give us at least one great laugh a day. We are sure that Tommy (@tommytheiggy) gives their owner at least double the number of laughs every day. Whether it's sprinting around the room with the zoomies or giving us a silly face, your dog is bound to make you laugh.

Dogs Are Happy With Whatever You Give Them

Unlike cats, dogs will be happy with whatever food or treat you give them! A non-picky eater is always good in our book and is one of the reasons dogs do, in fact, make the best pets.

Dogs Protect Us

Some people's primary reason for getting a dog is to feel safer. Although they bark at unimportant activities sometimes, they also bark when something just isn't sitting right with them. In turn, their unusual barking alerts us and can protect us against any harm. There have been multiple stories of owners who have been warned or protected by their furry companion.

Dogs Never Argue About What To Watch

If you live with your significant other or a roommate, you may have a bit of back in forth about what show or movie you want to watch, but your dog will always be happy with your selection (even if you found the movie disappointing). Plus, if you're the type that hates when people talk during a film, you won't have to worry about your pup!
