Female dog owners experiences of owning a dog (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka erfarenheter hundägare har upplevt av samvaro med hund. Femton individuella intervjuer genomfördes och alla respondenter var hundägare samt medlemmar av en brukshundklubb. Den insamlade datan analyserades med hjälp av tematisk analys. Uppsatsen handlar generellt om de olika erfarenheterna hundägare har upplevt av att äga en hund, samt hur detta kan kopplas till tidigare forskning kring hälsa. Erfarenheter så som bidragande till bättre hälsa, kärlek till hunden, glädje och sällskap tas upp vid flera tillfällen i uppsatsen. Efter analysen framställdes fyra slutgiltiga teman: bättre hälsa, aldrig ensam, intresse, samt relation och känslor. Resultatet av denna studie visade att en hund kan ge människan en god hälsa genom att ägarna bland annat får komma ut och gå. Den visar även att hunden sprider kärlek, glädje och inte minst att ägarna aldrig behöver känna sig ensamma. Slutsatsen av denna studie var att hunden bidrar till en bättre hälsa både psykiskt, fysiskt och socialtNyckelord: hund, hundägarskap, hälsa, känslor, intresse

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine dogowners’ experiences of the relation to their dog. Fifteen individual interviews were conducted and all respondents were dog owners as well as members of a Swedish brukshundklubb. The collected data was analyzed by a so called thematic analysis. What the paper generally comes down to is the different experiences dog owners have experienced in owning a dog, and how this can be linked to previous research in health. Experience as contributing to better health, love the dog, joy and companionship raised on several occasions in the essay. After the analysis was made, four final themes were found: better health, never lonely, interest, and relationship and emotion. The results of this study showed that a dog can give a good health to the owners, for an example by getting out for a walk. It also shows that the dog is spreading love, joy, and not least the owners never have to feel alone. The conclusion of this study was that the dog contributes to better health, both mentally, physically and socially.Keywords: dog, dogownership, health, emotions, interests
