If you are considering getting a pet for your kids, there are many reasons why getting a puppy is good. A few months ago I may have not agreed with that statement. At that time, our puppy was wild and chewed on everything she could find. Now that she is a little older, she is somewhat calmer and has become a part of the family. Here are 7 reasons why getting a puppy is good for your kids.
Having a puppy is a great way to teach your children responsibility. Both of my kids love helping take care of our puppy. They love bathing her and brushing her hair. Surprisingly, they even like feeding her. I am still working on getting them to help clean up the messes that she makes. This increased responsibility is one of the best reasons why getting a puppy is good for them.
