Clayton Perlman: Why Own a Dog? The Reasons Aren’t Always So Obvious

Clayton Perlman takes his position as business owner seriously, and devotes much of his time and energy to his enterprise. A diligent entrepreneur, Perlman throws himself into his work, finding little time for solace and relaxation.

When he does find a bit a downtime, however, Clayton Perlman enjoys little more than spending it with his two lovable dogs; a connection which not only never fails to bring a smile to his face, but which benefits Perlman in many untold, perhaps not-so-obvious ways.

As a busy professional, Perlman as a unique appreciation of the many advantages of dog ownership, including:

The Reduction of Stress

Numerous studies have shown dog ownership to have a positive impact on stress levels. The acts of playing, petting and even simply watching his dogs go about their day has continually helped to siphon off much of the stress Perlman accumulates over the course of a day.

Increased Exercise

Dog ownership incentivizes exercise, as dogs tend to require walking and play on a daily basis. By walking his dogs every evening, Perlman gets the chance to get outside, stretch his legs and get a much-needed workout.

An Improved Social Life

Walking the dog not only provides the dog owner a great and regular source of exercise; it may also be a great way to enhance one’s own social life. Taking the dog for a walk, making a trip to the dog park and even having the dog along on routine errands may help the owner better connect with other people, those who share in the many positive benefits of pet ownership.
