SHOULD I GET A PET DOG FOR MY CHILDREN?

My friend was having a very tough time with her kids. Their demand -a puppy!
She was trying very hard to convince them of all things negative with regard to keeping pets, but to no avail. Oh, and they wanted a great dane pup! The elder boy, all of 12 years, got a list of all breeders in their city from friends and the internet and put up a big fight every evening after school. He called up his grandparents and friends for support in his cause. His younger brother, just 8 years nodded in agreement. Sounds familiar?

Children love animals particularly,dogs. And, at some point will want a pet at home during their growing years. And they promise to do everything in looking after it. The benefits of keeping a pet dog can be tremendous. Children learn to be more responsible, caring, loving, fit and healthy. So, if you have space, and can afford it, go for it! Watch your children enjoy playing and you will certainly see the difference in their attitudes towards all living beings.
