HD Wallpapers & High Quality Pictures - Dogs & Puppies!

Updated on March 17, 2011

Man's Best Friend!

Most of us love dogs whether as companions or working animals. They have lived and worked with humans in so many roles that their loyalty has earned them the unique tag "man's best friend".

Their playfulness and ability to fit into human households and social situations make dogs highly social animals. Many dog owners view the dogs not only as pets but as family members because of their loyalty and devotion. There are more than 400 million dogs in the world today and consists of hundreds of breeds with various physical characteristics and behavior.

Many research findings indicate that  the companionship of a dog can enhance human physical health and psychological well-being. Dog owners have been shown to have better mental and physical health than nonowners, making fewer visits to the doctor and being less likely to be on medication than nonowners.

The health benefits of dogs can result from contact with dogs, not just from dog ownership. For example, when in the presence of a pet dog, people show reductions in cardiovascular, behavioral, and psychological indicators of anxiety.

The benefits of contact with a dog also include social support, as dogs are able to not only provide companionship and social support themselves, but also to act as facilitators of social interactions between humans.

Children can reap a lot of benefits from dogs. One study demonstrated that children with conduct disorders who participated in an education program with dogs showed increased attendance, increased knowledge and skill objectives, and decreased antisocial and violent behavior compared to those who were not in an animal-assisted program.

I love dogs and have sourced some beautiful and interesting pictures of dogs and puppies from the Internet. You can use them as wallpapers to decorate your desktop or share them among your family and friends. All of them are free downloads from reputable websites and should be okay to use for personal and non-commercial purposes.They are all high definition or HD pictures in .jpg format with sizes ranging from 800x600px to 1600x1200px. Click on each mage to open to full size and right click to save image as..
