Stress Relief

Stress…we all have it. From busy families, demands at work, and the hustle and bustle of daily life, it sometimes seems there are not enough hours in a day. With full time employees working 40+ hours in a week and with only 2 days in a weekend, the stress of life quickly adds up. But luckily for you, a helpful stress reducer is just within reach of your furry critters! Studies show that owning and caring for a pet helps relieve loneliness, depression and lowers blood pressure. Dogs also encourage us to “stop and smell the roses” on walks they require for physical and mental enrichment. Pets remind us to live in the moment and enjoy what we have- a loving four-legged friend that is always happy to see us and gets the most out of every moment!
