373. LET THERE BE LOVE

So many people have dogs. They are like children for us, and therefore we love them so much.

Let there be love

Also, it´s healthy for people to have a dog beacuse you have to take out your dog for long walks. You can go to the beach, take him or her to the mountains or simply walking in a park or in the street.

If there´s a dog in a family, everyone is happy and children will grow up to be better persons.
For people who live alone, doctors recommend to have a dog to cheer you up because a dog will give you good vibrations and not make you feel so lonely.
When you come home after a long day at work, your dog will come running to you and make you feel better and happier. Your dog will also help you get rid of your stress and reduce your cholesterol.

But the question is: Why do people love their dogs so much?
Well, it´s because when you and your dog look at each other´s eyes, both of you get a boost of the feel good hormone called oxytocin.
Oxytocin is a powerful hormone and acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain.

When we hug or kiss a loved one, a lot of oxytocin is produced.
This is the same hormone which causes the special bond between parents and their babies, having sex and breastfeeding.
When you and you dog look into each other´s eyes, the oxytocin level in dogs goes up to 130 percent, and in humans, oxytocin levels increases up to 300 percent.

So, if you want your dog to look at your eyes, you must do the following:
Of course, first you must teach your dog to sit.
Give your dog a prize when he or she has done something correctly, like not peeing on the floor, but peeing outside in the park.
First, tell your dog to “SIT”
Then show your dog the prize and let him smell it.
Extend your arms to your sides with the prize in one of your hands.
This will make your dog look at your hand in the beginning, but in the end, your dog will focus on your face and finally on your eyes.
Both of you will get a boost of oxytocin and feel great.

There are so many dogs who are looking for a home. There are a lot of organizations which can help you find the right dog for you.

So, come on people....adopt a dog and feel real love.
It´s obvious that people love their dogs because dogs only know how to love people.
Let there be love be happy
