Scientists tracked the correlation between people, cardiovascular disease and whether they had a dog or not.

One man even credits his pal's dog with helping him see the light at the end of the tunnel during his darkest days of depression.

In addition, the study said it's "plausible that not all members of a multiple-person household interact with the dog as much as a single owner". The study, conducted in Sweden, included participants totalling 3.4million people and found that.

In Sweden, pet owners are required to register their docs since 2001.

The research, published Friday in the journal Scientific Reports, claims to be "by far the largest investigation" into the links between dog ownership and health. "Single dog owners had a 33% reduction in risk of death and 11% reduction in risk of myocardial infarction during follow-up compared to single non-owners", said researcher Mwenya Mubanga in a press release.

Researchers believed canine pets help to lower loneliness, which has been described as "akin to a chronic long-term condition" and linked to disorders including heart disease.

This guy is fit because his dog is fit, you get me? But their risk of a heart attack was not reduced by owning a dog. At the beginning of the study, none of them had been diagnosed with heart disease. Senior author Professor Tove Fall said this study was 100 times larger than other research to establish dog ownership with walking more.

"We know that dog owners in general have a higher level of physical activity, which could be one explanation to the observed results". "This may be more prominent in dog owners who benefit from the companionship, unconditional love and support".

However, the authors recognise the limitations of the study, as the data doesn't show the differences between owners and non-owners before getting a dog, which could have influenced results.
