The Therapeutic Benefits of Dogs in Mental Health

At Montare Behavioral Health, we recognize the profound impact that pets can have on mental health. A recent poll by the American Psychiatric Association [1] reveals compelling evidence about the positive effects pets have on their owners’ mental well-being. Among pet owners, a significant majority (86%) reported that their pets positively impact their mental health. Specifically, dog owners reported a slightly higher rate (87%) of positive mental health impacts than other pet owners.

Pets are not just animals living in our homes; they are family. This sentiment is echoed by 88% of pet owners who consider their pets integral family members. The therapeutic benefits of having a dog or other pets include:

  • Stress and Anxiety Reduction: 69% of pet owners find that their pets help alleviate stress and anxiety.
  • Love and Support: The same percentage (69%) feel their pets provide unconditional love and support, enhancing their overall emotional well-being.
  • Companionship: Pets offer valuable companionship, which 69% of owners identify as a critical benefit.
  • Calming Presence: 66% of pet owners appreciate their pets’ calming presence.
  • Friendship: 63% of owners consider their pets true friends, showcasing their deep bond.

These statistics highlight the importance of pets in mental health recovery and reinforce our commitment to providing a pet-friendly rehab environment for mental health at Montare Behavioral Health, where healing and companionship go hand in hand.
