"The findings of the largest-ever investigation of the association between dog-ownership and human health should encourage all of us to add a four-legged friend in our family circle", she said. The Swedish study, which tracked more than 3.4 million people, as Time reported, found that folks who have dogs reduce their risk of death by 11% and cut their chances of cardiovascular death by 15%.

'Other explanations include an increased wellbeing and social contacts or effects of the dog on the bacterial microbiome (gut bacteria) in the owner'. During the 12-year follow-up, they found that dogs may be helpful in reducing cardiovascular risk by providing a nonhuman form of social support and increasing physical activity. But the authors of the study attempted to clarify the reasons further. Either way, the dogs are probably going to lick you all over.
