For a dog, living in a humid and rainy climate is heaven; it's mud and clay everywhere. It runs down the sides of your backyard into the middle, along the fence, and in the back garden area. It's an absolute mess; dogs enjoy so very much. They always want to walk in the dirtiest areas and cover their entire bodies with mud, relentlessly. After you spend time and money getting them groomed and bathed, they desperately want to return their natural smell and look. Maybe, because the residual detergents and toxic substances in the shampoo don't make them very happy campers. If you find your freshly groomed dog covered with clay, mud, sand, dirt, grass seed, and any other mess, he is extraordinarily happy. You? Not so much.
NiCole R. Keith, Ph. D., professor at Indiana University, made a link between clean houses and health. He tracked the health of 998 African Americans and found that those with clean houses were physically in better shape and more active than people with messy houses.
The linguistic analysis software used in the scientific study in 2010, discovered that women who described their homes as cluttered expressed higher levels if the stress hormone cortisol.
Researchers at Princeton University found that mess makes it more difficult to focus on tasks; when the visual cortex is overwhelmed by irrelevant objects, attention is diffused.
The National Sleep Foundation research found that clean sheets and neatly made beds in the morning contribute to better night sleep. The list can go on, but you've got it; a desire to live in the organized environment is not a matter of human perception, but a direction towards a more productive life.
Does having a pet makes you healthier?
There is a common opinion that pet owners are happier and healthier than people who do not live with small companions. The ongoing California Health Interview research turned to a huge data set with 42,044 adults interviewed about dog and cat ownership. Among all discoveries, like married people are more likely to have pets, pet keeping is more common among homeowners, and wealthy people are more likely to live with pets than poor people, general health ratings of pet owners were only slightly higher than of non-pet owners. The difference disappeared when income, race and marital status were taken into consideration.
So, Yes, pet owners are different when it comes to demographics and lifestyle, but No, when it comes to health. However, the correlation between house cleanliness and health is a well-researched subject. It's obvious that keep your house clean is more difficult when you live with pets. You spend hours cleaning after them. Unless you learn how to keep the pet dirt at bay - and keep your free time free.
Where the Most Mess Comes From?
The most mess from pets comes from outdoor. It doesn't matter where you live, in sunny, dry Los Angeles, or Georgia monsoons, your pets always find a way to bring in debris and mud. The one sure method to prevent this from happening is to make sure your yard is clean. How?
