Dogs are among the first animals that humans domesticated and have been with us throughout human history. Dogs have served as hunters, workers and companions and have earned the love of many people including Clayton Perlman.
A lot of rehab centers that are set up to help victims of stroke or other debilitating injuries or diseases have pet programs where part of the patients’ recover program is involved with dogs. One of the reasons for this is that feelings of loneliness are fairly common after suffering a stroke or similar injury and having pets around can help to reduce a patient’s loneliness which can help speed up their recovery. Another benefit is the simple fact that having a pet can give people something else to focus on besides their own troubles which can be very helpful for people who are in the process of recovering from a crippling disease.
As the above illustrates dogs can be very gentle companions, but on the other hand they can also be very helpful for people trying to maintain an active lifestyle. Even a small dog will need to be walked at least once a day so it is a great way to motivate yourself to work out on those days you’d rather stay on the couch.
Like a lot of people, Clayton Perlman loves dogs and one of his favorite ways to relax after a hard day of work in the real estate industry is to take his dogs for a walk through the park.
