Single dog owners had a 33 per cent drop in the risk of death and an 11 per cent drop in the risk of myocardial infarction compared to single non-owners. This includes taking the dog out for a walk in any weather condition. Which, according to the story, "impact your microbiome, the bacteria that live in your gut, and thus your health". Those who choose breeds for hunting would likely already be considered outdoorsy types, and regular exercise has always been associated with reduced risks of cardiovascular diseases.

There's also the argument that active people are more likely to own dogs anyway - if you're more of a fan of Jammie Dodgers and gluing your arse to the sofa, you're probably not going to get a pet who likes to go for a stroll every time it needs to defecate.
