Owning a pet may seem like an odd way to improve your health, but results of a recent study found that children who live in a home with a pet have a better immune system that allows them to fight off common infections. Even more research examining the heathy benefits of owning a dog have found that canine companionship can help us avoid cardiovascular disease and obesity by encouraging physical activity and can prevent depression resulting from loneliness. In celebration of National Dog Day this Tuesday, we have compiled a list of videos to show how great having a four-legged friend can be.

Just a dog day afternoon at the pool

They can even help with groceries

A friend to blow bubbles with

Or pop bubbles

Even when they do something bad, you can’t get mad at them

Let’s face it, dogs are the best (Sorry, cat people)
