Labrador Retrievers Make Good Therapists
In recent articles, a licensed professional counselor with thirty years of experience, explained how owning a Labrador retriever can help produce healthier, happier, more well adjusted children and seniors.
Having a dog helps teach responsibility to children. Whether they’re helping to bathe, feed, or exercise the family dog, children will learn the value of responsibility. Caring for the dog will teach children that their pet is dependent on them for food and exercise and love. Dogs require a lot of care; they need to be fed, walked, played with and trained. Children come to appreciate discipline by observing how important it is in their dog. Having a dog teaches children patience, commitment and selflessness.
Taking care of a dog gives one a great deal of joy and satisfaction. Older people greatly value their friendship with their dogs. This greatly improves their emotional health. Furthermore, it helps people to overcome one of the greatest nuisances of old age, boredom. The responsibility of taking care of the dog who is dependent on them gives the older adult a reason to live life meaningfully. As far as the dog, having such good companionship from an owner is very good for their overall pet health. Dogs are especially responsive to conversation–specifically, tone of voice.
