Many said that dogs are man’s best friend and are a better companion than other animals alike. According to research from Rover, dogs have proven themselves time and again to be loyal, kind, understanding, and have an indomitable spirit. They greet their owners, and strangers, happily even after going through a tough condition such as abandonment or animal cruelty. Dogs also make humans feel better with a wag of their tail because their wagging tail is often associated with happiness, albeit it might not be always the case. 

Moreover, another research mentioned that dogs in the workplace can provide social support for employees, as well as give more opportunities for coworkers to refresh their wellbeing, resulting in better workplace interaction.
