The comparison of dog owners with non-dog owners yielded similar results.
A study by the Mayo Clinic and Italian researchers, showed that people with dogs are far healthier than those with either no pets, or those who own a different animal.
But then they compared dog owners with everyone else and found that no matter their age, sex or education level, they benefited the most in terms of cardiovascular health.
Dr Andrea Maugeri, a researcher with the International Clinical Research Centre at St Anne's University Hospital in Brno, said: "In general, people who owned any pet were more likely to report more physical activity, better diet and blood sugar at ideal level".
The study collected information on 1,769 people, none of whom had a history of heart disease, living in Brno, Czech Republic.
As outlined by the American Heart Association, they are body mass index, diet, physical activity, smoking status, blood pressure, blood glucose and total cholesterol.

Owning a dog also has been linked to better mental health in other studies and less perception of social isolation -; both risk factors for heart attacks.
The study compared sociodemographic characteristics, cardiovascular disease risk factors and cardiovascular health (CVH) metrics.
They looked at several lifestyle factors and found dogs benefitted patients' hearts more than anything else.
"Ultimately, our research will provide insights into how pet ownership may help older people achieve higher levels of physical activity or maintain their physical activity levels for a longer period of time, which could improve their prospects for a better quality of life, improved or maintained cognition, and perhaps, even overall longevity", said researcher Nancy Gee.
When they boost your mood, your dog is boosting your heart health too, Dr. Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, a Mayo Clinic cardiologist reported.
