Did you know that just by looking into a dog’s eyes is equivalent to when we touch – cuddle, hug, or holding hands – our bodies release “feel good” hormones.
These hormones include oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin. Once the hormones are released into our bodies we experience feelings of happiness, relaxation, improve mood, and lower levels of depression.
So next time you are feeling a little down or alone. Go look into your dogs’ eyes and see how amazing you feel.
