If you had a dog growing up, there's a good chance you'll own one as an adult — but is that because of your experience or your genetic makeup? Although dogs and other pets are common household members across the globe, little is known how they impact our daily life and health. A team of Swedish and British scientists studied 35,035 sets of twins from the Swedish Twin Registry to find out. According to Mother Nature Network, they found a strong connection between genetics and the likelihood of owning a dog. The results also suggest there could be a link between the genetic propensity toward dog ownership and the health benefits of owning a pet.
