9 Reasons Everyone Should Be A Dog Person

Surprisingly, not everyone in this world is a dog person.

This baffles me – what's not to love? It seems to me that dogs are the whole package: kind, smart (at least in the important ways), happy, and full of love. In case you aren't quite convinced yet, here are nine reasons why you should convert to being a dog person.

1. They come in so many shapes and sizes

Dogs are masters of variety.

Want a tiny dog that you can carry around with you at all times? They have those. Want a giant fluffy dog that you can wrap your arms around and snuggle? They also exist. The possibilities are endless.

2. They motivate you to exercise

Dogs need a walk every day, which means that you have to get up every day and walk with them. No more staying in bed as late as possible, time to get up and break a sweat with your fur-baby.

3. They make you more social

I don't know about you all, but when I see someone with a dog in public, I am 10 times more likely to approach them - to pet the dog, of course, but I talk to their human out of courtesy.

4. They're so excited to see you

There's no better feeling than coming home after a long day and seeing your dog so genuinely thrilled that you're back.

5. You'll never be lonely

Dogs can be incredibly needy for attention, so you'll always have company.

6. They're a lot nicer than humans (and a lot of other animals, too)

Their affection comes with no strings attached. Crazy, right?

7. They can help you through hard times

Dogs are therapeutic! They are known to help people through anxiety, trauma, health problems, and countless other things. They're supportive when you need them the most and know how to love you when you need it the most.

8. They're so snuggly

One of the greatest perks of having a dog is being able to cuddle with them at any moment. They're happy, you're happy, they're incredibly soft – it all works out.

9. Unconditional love

They love you just because you're you. Whether you're rich or poor, a little weird or have great sense of humor, dogs will love you no matter what.
