Wellness Shot: Dogs Get Depressed Over Smartphones

Prick up your ears for this news dog owners! If you live in the Bay Area there’s an excellent chance you share your house with a Chihuahua or a Golden Doodle, there are 150,000 dogs in San Francisco alone! A new study says your pup can get depressed if you overuse your smartphone!

Dogs read our body language and our eye contact. If you’re always on the phone around them, not looking at them or paying attention to them, this may cause them to become anxious or depressed! Be sure to spend time with your dogs focusing on them and giving them praise, a little bit every day. 

If you’ve been thinking about getting a dog (the same study showed dogs can help boost your mental health) but you’re not up for jogging or Frisbee maybe a senior furry friend is perfect for you! Check out all the available older and wiser pups at muttville.org!
