Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to investigate how dogs affect their owners’ health, and if there are any differences in health between dog owners and statistical surveys of the Swedish population. In this study, a quantitative questionnaire was used, with questions based on previous research and recommendations of different lifestyle factors affecting human health, such as exercise, sleep, etc. A request was advertised in diverse groups on Facebook. The study group was people aged 25 to 35, who have a dog today or have had a dog earlier, and have a job. The results showed that respondents exercised more while they have dogs compared with times when they did not have a dog. Among the results, there can also be seen that there are differences in alcohol consumption, tobacco consumption, how often the respondents interact with friends or family, depending on whether the respondents have a dog or not. My conclusions are that there are interesting differences depending on whether you have a dog or not. However, the author can not draw conclusions about causation of the study.

Abstract [sv]

Studienssyfte var att undersöka hur hundar påverkar sin ägares hälsa. Samt om det fanns några skillnader i hälsa mellan hundägare och befolkningen som helhet utifrån vad som rapporterats i statistiska undersökningar.I denna kvantitativa studie användes en enkät med frågor som är gjorda utifrån tidigare forskning och rekommendationer gällande olika livsstilsfaktorer som påverkar människors hälsa, exempelvis motion, sömn, etc. En förfrågan annonserades i olika grupper på Facebook. Undersökningsgruppen var personer i åldrarna 25–35år, som har hund idag eller har haft hund tidigare, samt att de har ett arbete. Resultatet visade att respondenterna motionerar mer under tiden då de har hund, jämfört med tiden de inte haft hund. I resultatet kan man skillnader mellan hundägare och personer som inte har hund när det gäller alkoholkonsumtion, tobakskonsumtion, och hur ofta man umgås med vänner eller familj. Mina slutsatser är att det finns intressanta skillnader beroende på om man har hund eller inte. Författaren kan inte dra slutsatser om orsakssamband av studien.
