How and Why | Episode 5: Why do dogs make us happy?

Dogs have been and will continue to be a principle part of our lives for many years now - but what is it about our furry four legged friends that captures our hearts so deeply? 

Thousands of years ago, wolves helped humans survive in tough conditions, and out of this partnership, dogs were born. Even today, dogs are helping humans survive and thrive, just in a different way! Dogs make us happy!

With approximately 1,02,00,000 pet dogs in India – our country ranks 6th in the world in total dog population. We Indians, really love our pet pooches! Several studies have also shown that when dogs and humans interact both experience a surge in Oxytocin - a hormone associated with the feeling of falling in love.

Dogs have been known to help improve our health, our moods and even boost our productivity and likeability.

But why do these four-legged, fanged and clawed, powerful creatures have such a hold over us? Catch this episode of How & Why to find!
