Science has shown that petting a dog releases a hormone called oxytocin in both the dog and the petter, which makes everyone feel better. Oxytocin, called the “love hormone”, is the naturally occurring chemical in the body responsible for bonding between mother and baby in humans.
Do you know what feels better than just feeling good? Getting paid for it.
A woman in North Fort Meyers, Florida hoping to capitalize on the good feelings has started a dog massage business.
