Hug Your Dog Today!

🐶 Did you know today is National Hug Your Dog Day? Few things are better than giving your furry family member a squeeze! ⁣

Plus, hugging your dog actually has therapeutic benefits for you and your pup.⁣⁣⁣⁣

Studies have shown that hugging pups increases oxytocin, the “cuddle hormone”, which helps to lower stress, blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol.⁣

❤️ Hugging creates a sense of well-being and contentment between you and your pet. It also can help with a dog’s behavioral issues and bad habits by providing a sense of trust between you and your dog.⁣⁣
If your canine companion isn’t a hugger, try a belly rub, a scratch behind the ears, or gentle petting. ⁣⁣⁣
Our dogs deserve all the love and affection we can give, so make sure you give them an extra hug today!⁣⁣ 🐶
