Benefits of Dog Ownership

PERTH, Australia, April 23 (UPI) -

An Australian study shows dog owners are seven times more likely to achieve the recommended level of exercise a week than non-owners are.

Research by the University of Western Australia found that dog owners averaged 55 more minutes a week on exercise than those without a canine pet.

The study into "Dogs and Physical; Activity" surveyed more than 1,800 people in the city of Perth.

The author of the report, Hayley Cutt, told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. that findings "show there is a clear benefit of owning a dog, as it encourages you to be more physically active and get out there each day and go for a walk with your dog."
