Dogs makes great pets for emotional support. I bought a dog after my oldest left for college. As a single mom, at the time, my oldest was my backbone… my motivation to never quit. I took it hard when he left to pursue his dreams, but as a mom I wasn’t going to hold him back. I just had to get something to keep me busy at home while I was going through this depression phase.
I bought a small house dog, who keeps me very busy. She allowed me to miss my son, but not to the point that it’s unhealthy. When my son moved out, he too, was depressed and homesick. I told him I bought a dog which has helped me. He looked for a small dog for his apartment and after two years, he ended up with two yorkies. Dog are so good for your mental and emotional health. They make a great companion but it takes discipline to train them. Consistency on their schedule, which makes them great companions.
