Grandpa's Best Friend

Dogs are known as man’s best friend, but what about an old man? Owning a dog as a senior might sound like a lot of work, but there are tons of different dog breeds that can make your retirement years more pleasant. Having a dog is a great way to give seniors a loyal and loving companion when their family can’t always be around, and caring for them is a great way to keep active.

Studies have even shown that dogs can reduce both stress and blood pressure, two things that seniors are always trying to keep in check. Dogs can even be trained to assist people with Alzheimer’s. These breeds are a perfect pal for almost anyone!
