Having pets can be healing for the family. Pets have proven to tighten the bond between family members. In normal family dynamics, tensions erupt, as we are in fact human beings. Family life can be further stressful when there is a child involved, or two. However, studies have proven that pets, especially dogs, help ease out the tension at home and provide relief to the family. Also, dogs serve to protect their masters, as their species have done centuries ago.
What worries other parents is that the dog might not be good for the child. This notion has been slowly changing as studies have found out that children do benefit positively from having house dogs. Not only are pet dogs fun, but also they are significant for the holistic development of the child. Caring for a pet dog teaches kids the idea of nurturing another being. This also teaches them responsibility. Plus, it allows kids to develop trust and socialization and create lasting memories with their very first best friend.
