They have proved themselves better than a friend, a companion and a partner. Now, some researches from the Kuopio University Hospital in Finland and University of Montreal have proved that dogs can also contribute in betterment of health of kids and children. Infants and kids who are susceptible to many kinds of immunity related illness and children with special needs can be benefitted from the company of a dog. Service dogs have proved their worth for Autistic children. Get a better understanding of the two studies below.

Kuopio University Hospital’s Research

Everyone is aware of the playful nature of dogs that can turn anyone into their dirty buddy. Some people thus fear about the dirt they bring home every time when they go out for a good play with their doggie friends. But, this is not a worrisome thing, even when you have an infant or kid at home, as against the general notion.

Paediatrics of the university hospitals have confirmed about their research that says that dogs that bring dirt, etc home fuse strength in immunity system of infants and kids. They have seemed to be affected by allergies fewer days than before. Also, with their stronger system, the dependency on antibiotics could be zeroed down to nil. The magic seemed to work specifically on keeping the ear allergies in control and if hit, they recover from it as soon as possible due to the boosted up immune system.

This is one study showing why dogs for kids are important. The other study goes like that:

Findings of University of Montreal

Autism is a neural disorder that results into behavioural issues. Children with this disorder tend to disconnect with society and a constant anxiety surrounds them. Dogs (especially, service dogs) are found to have giving them a soothing company and thus reducing their anxiety.

The study focussed on the stress hormones’ level of the children in three conditions. The time before, during and after the dog was with children was studied by monitoring the level. Parents were also asked to keep diaries to recording their kids’ behaviour and mood. Everything was found in a better condition when the dog was around them clearing showing the influence dogs had on them. Researchers term it “dramatic”.

The study is a sound proof of one of the speculated fact that dogs can understand the needs when others cannot.

Dog- Ultimate Friend

We knew their virtues much before they were experimentally proved. Whether dogs are of India or any other country, their relationship with human beings has always been something inexplicable but adorable. With their soothing company one can never feel alone. Now, that you know their importance in the health of infants and kids, you would surely like own one yourself, won’t you? /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin-top:0in; mso-para-margin-right:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:10.0pt; mso-para-margin-left:0in; line-height:115%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri"Psychology Articles,"sans-serif"; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-fareast; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin;}
