Healthy Haircutter: Get a Dog, Get Fit

Anne Moratto | April 26, 2016 | 4:36 PM

Get a dog, get fit.

Barbershops have a tradition of having pitt bulls as mascots.  Many hairstylists have tried their hand at grooming the family dog.  A dog just might have a larger role in haircutter health and wellness.

Having a dog has fitness benefits.  Playing with a puppy is good for you, too.  Walking the dog puts miles on the walker, too. Fresh air and sunshine is good for you.  Dogs frequently find themselves in the presence of humans engaging in positive social interaction.  You thought it was a dog park.  It is really a people park and the dogs are the excuses.  The need to let the dog out or take the dog out might just get you out of bed earlier and on with the day.  Who can be depressed taking in the love a canine companion provides?  The needs and demands of a don might just pull you away form work at a time and in a way that helps to maintain the life balance many haircutters lack.

If you need more reasons, here is a great article that supports the notion of dog ownership and improved health and wellness.
