Companion Job Description

Companion is a dog trained to do specific actions, such as fetching or guarding property.

Companion animals are popular with dog owners because dogs provide companionship.

Studies have found that pet owners generally report higher general health than non-pet owners.

One study analyzed 2,769 subjects 60 years or older, and found that those who owned dogs were 19 percent less likely to die during the study period than those who did not own dogs.

Another study analyzed 1,238 subjects between the ages of 18 and 75, and found that among those without pets, 54 percent reported not having a confidant, while only 42 percent.
