Spending time playing with your four-legged friends will have a positive impact on the brain. When cuddling them your body will produce more Oxytocin. Oxytocin is known as the “love hormone”, a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in the endocrine system. Oxytocin helps to calm the system of neutrons in the brain, helping you relax and also increasing your ability to believe in good things.

It is known that Oxytocin is only released in other cases such as orgasm, when a mother breastfeeds, at birth, or when romantic dating between couples.

3. They are a stress relief therapy.

At the same time with increasing levels of Oxytocin, interacting with your pet also helps to reduce levels of Cortisol – the hormone responsible for causing stress.
Studies at New York University show that participants who take a high-difficulty test will be less stressed when their dog is around.
Cortisol is a negative agent which leads to many unpleasant feelings.

Please take in mind that Cortisol also can make you more sensitive to painful feelings and weaken the immune system, making you more vulnerable to bad factors outside the environment.
However, amazingly, raising dachshunds or other dogs will help eliminate this harmful hormone. For those who are struggling with diabetes, reducing Cortisol will also reduce blood sugar naturally.
Wash away a long and tiring day with British Bull is a perfect way to protect your health.
Some other studies have successfully piloted dogs to work, helping office workers reduce stress, recover faster after challenges at works. Besides, dachshund owners are more capable of social interaction than non-adopters.

4. Improving the communication ability of owners.

If you are a shy, an introverted person and find it difficult to share yourself, a dachshund puppy as a friend will be good for you.
Walking a dachshund in a park or going to a pet club will help you increase your chances of interacting and communicating with others. In parallel, people who own dachshunds have a common knowledge base (dogs) and have topics to exchange which will help you become more confident. Joining a dachshund lovers club is a way to increase your ability to communicate and create positive relationships in life.

5. Strengthen the physical body and reduce cardiovascular disease.


Some dachshunds with special training can become therapies to support some disorders such as autism in children. This research has been applied in practical medical centers for special children. A dachshund dog was trained as a therapy dog for children with autism. Also, nursing homes raising dogs help older people feel less lonely.
These are just simple examples of many ways that dachshunds can improve your life.

If you are living with a dachshund, show him love and take care of him after reading this article. There is one more thing you should know, your four-legged friend can understand the love and care from you.
