This means that there is a greater diversity in bacteria that enters the home. Which is good for us! Fortunately, this benefit helps people with dogs get ill less frequently and less severely than people—especially children—with cats or no pets.   Better For Allergies – Increased Resistance to Allergies Now, this may seem contrary to what most people think.
