Dog Owners More Active Than Others, Study Finds

A  study finds that dog owners are more active than those without dogs.

According to a Scientific Reports story, dog owners in the U.K. reported spending 300 minutes per week walking their dogs, 200 more than those without dogs.

The report also says dog owners spend more time exercising without their dogs suggesting other forms of exercise were used.

It’s unclear if active people more often own dogs, however, dog owners are four times likely to meet the standard exercise requirements of 2.5 hours of exercise per week.

As a dog owner, do you feel like you’re more active than people without dogs?
