You are more resistant to allergies
Although dogs can be awful triggers for people who do have allergies. It turns out that growing up in a house with dogs can help children reduce the chances of developing allergies during the course of their lives. Even if you were just a fetus when your mother lived around dogs it may still apply. So if you are thinking of having a child soon, or you already do, you might want to start considering bringing one pretty little puppy home.
