The unexpected advantage of dogs is called


Scientists of the Liverpool university found out that owners of dogs four times more often carry out standards of physical activity, than those who do not have these pets. It is reported in the press release on MedicalXpress. Researchers estimated the level of physical activity at 646 adults and 46 children living in the Western Cheshire (England). The number of owners of dogs reached 191. It turned out that 64 percent of owners of pets, walked at least 150 minutes a week that exceeds the average duration of walks at those, who had no pets. Besides, walking of dogs did not replace with itself other forms physical exercises, and happened in addition to them. According to scientists, these data show that pets promote active lifestyle. However, in the USA as showed the previous researches, only 27 percent of owners of dogs carry out the recommended forms of physical activity. It is considered that it is connected with the fact that Americans get the breeds of dog differing in independence more often. Doctors advise to give to physical activity of moderate and strong intensity not less than 150 minutes a week. However 66 percent of men and 58 percent of women in Great Britain and less than 50 percent of adults in the USA follow this advice. What occurs in Russia and in the world?
