It has always been known that dog's make people happy. There is something about their presence that just makes the mood in a room a little lighter.

David Sack M.D., a contributor writer for Psychology Today has found five main reasons why dogs make us much happier:
- Dogs challenge our negative talk
- Dogs keep us active
- Dogs connect us to the present
- Dogs keep us connected to the world
- Dogs remind us of the power of play
