The simple act of petting, cuddling, or interacting with a dog provides a human with multiple mental and physical health benefits. Oxytocin, the opioids, adrenaline, and serotonin that play a role in elevating mood and bringing about calmness are released in the brain. Animal assisted therapy lowers anxiety to help people relax, provide comfort, reduce loneliness, increase mental stimulation, and provide an escape or happy distraction.
