Hunting Breeds Dog Parents Live Longer

I had my 62nd birthday last week and now see “old people” information everywhere. The Consumer Reports Health Journal I’m reading shares a Swedish study that says people who live alone with a dog reduce their risk of early death by 33%.

For those who live with another human and have a dog the risk is 11% lower than those who don’t have a dog.

Study authors believe dog owners get more exercise.

AND those of us who have retrievers, hounds and terriers reap the most benefits likely because these breeds are more active.
