Ad Campaigns Tell How A Dog Can Transform A Person’s Life (16 Pics)

Most of us know how awesome doggos are. Having adorable dogs in your life or just being near one lifts up our mood and makes us smile. So it’s no wonder that when it comes to fighting loneliness, there are plenty who suggest getting a pet dog (or two, or three) to keep the blues at bay.

The dog food company Pedigree is known for its ad campaigns that focus on the positive sides of dog adoption and highlighting how having a canine in your life helps you to be the best version of yourself.

In short, doggos = good; more doggos = better. And that’s the kind of mathematics most of us can get behind.

The idea behind these creative ads that good boys help fight loneliness isn’t something theoretical or said just to sell more dog food. Some scientists have found links between owning a pet and feeling more buoyant and less depressed or anxious.

HelpGuide explains that playing with cute dogs or cats calms and relaxes us and suggests that pet owners visit the doctor less often. What’s more, owning a pet such as a doggo helps you move and exercise more, which has obvious health benefits. Potentially, of course. You won’t get healthier if you feed your dog snacks and let it laze on your couch all day long.

Owning pets also makes you (potentially) more social: you meet other pet owners in parks and elsewhere. Naturally, you start talking. About their doggo. About your doggo. About the weather. About yesterday’s weather. What you’re having for tea today. You know, the important stuff in life.

Furthermore, taking care of pets creates structure in your life because you have to feed them at the same time every day. Not to mention going for walkies. And watching your favorite TV show on Netflix and chilling under a warm blanket together. However, some researchers believe that it’s not yet possible to establish a direct correlation between pet ownership and better psychological health: the benefits are there, but they’re not as big as we’d like to think.

Company for the rest of the year. Adopt

Most senior adults only receive the visit of their families for important dates, like on their birthdays or Christmas. We want to change it by adopting a dog, so they could be in companionship all the rest of the year, all the time.

I never had a pet growing up and I still don't, but in my apartment complex we have a bunch of stray cats and it kind of makes me happy when I come home from work or go to leave in the morning and see them laying on my porch. To me, that means they trust me enough and comfortable enough to relax there. I think pets are a good thing to have because when you are young, they teach you to respect life and when you are older, they offer companionship.

Having a pet is a wonderful thing, especially as a child. I grew up with dogs and cats (we had always at least 2 dogs and 3-4 cats around) and I cannot imagine having had it any other way. Because it taught me love, kindness and compassion - not just to animals but also to people. And it bought tons of joy along the way :)

Ummmm.... some of those are kind of messed up... the guy with a stick? The dog didn't change him from an attacker to a nice person. The guy on the ledge? Not cool.

I think the context of the guy with the stick that in the first he is an attacker and in the second he is playing with the dog, the purpose of the stick has changed. And the second one is he is going from suicide to rescuing the dog, both are about changed perspective, look closer at the intention it is portraying .
