Stressed Out. These dog breeds can help.

     Many Studies have shown pet owners have lower blood pressure levels and react better to stress. Experts say these dog breeds have the most soothing power. However, I must put in a good word for Pit Bull/Boxer mixes like my dog Maddie. She does a good job relieving my stress everyday. 

1. Chihuahuas- They are less than 6 pounds, don't require much exercise and shower you with attention if you need it.

2. Cocker Spaniels- Animal Planet says this breed is especially good at connecting with kids who have mental health or emotional challenges.

3. Corgis- The American Kennel Club says they're obedient and loyal without being needy. A great companion for nursing homes and people with disabilities. 

4. Dachshunds-They very affectionate and playful. They're a natural for calming anxiety.

5. Greyhounds- They are gentle giants who can sprint up to 35 MPH. But they lie around a lot and rarely bark. 

6. Golden or Labrador Retrievers-Smart, easy to train and good temperament. The most popular therapy, rescue and guide dogs.
