Labradoodle creator regret ???

labradoodle regret

Perhaps you have read this article or seen it on the news lately. i’m certainly not going to claim that it is fake news however you have to think about what’s being discussed and what the regrets are.

The creator was disgusted at puppy mills and those who do mass breedings just for profit. It wasn’t the dog or its temperament that the creator regretted.

If you are interested in a Labradoodle you should research the breed. perhaps you could talk to a neighbor or friend who has purchased one and discussed their likes and dislikes. Talk to your vet as well about them being hypoallergenic. Like most people you probably aren’t going to find many negatives about this breed.

So as a future dog owner or while you are doing research it is important to consider the personality of the dog you would like to purchase. It doesn’t matter so much about how they came into existence or what the original creator has to say

Health benefits of owning a dog

There are many reason why dogs are called humans’ best friends: not only do they offer unparalleled companionship, but a growing body of research shows they also boost human health. Owning a dog can prompt you to be more physically active — have leash, will walk. It can also:

  • help you be calmer, more mindful, and more present in your life
  • make kids more active, secure, and responsible
  • improve the lives of older individuals
  • make you more social and less isolated

Just petting a dog can reduce the petter’s blood pressure and heart rate (while having a positive effect on the dog as well).

The health connection is often a two-way street. People who are overweight and sedentary tend to have dogs that are overweight and sedentary. In fact, obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the canine community — affecting more than half of dogs — just as it has among humans. So if you have an unhealthy, overweight dog, that may be a red flag that you’re unhealthy yourself.

Get Healthy, Get a Dog offers  healthy lifestyle changes for both you and your dog to further boost the benefits described above. If the two of you already exercise together, it offers ways to expand your activities.
