We have 5 points that will help you and your dog have a healthy, growing future.
Caring for and raising a (new) dog takes time. When you do this together with your child, you teach both your dog and child a sense of responsibility. When walking, washing, feeding, playing, you name it. It may be a bit difficult at first, but it will become easier over time.
Strong Family Bond
By growing up together with the dog, the family bond will become stronger. Dogs don't take anyone's side, they may create a preferred owner over time, but when it comes to bonding and love, a dog gives equal love. This way you learn to walk and stand together. Do joint activities, such as walking or swimming, with the dog to maintain this bond.
Fewer illnesses and allergies
The great thing about growing up with dogs is that children are less likely to develop diseases and allergies. It has been scientifically proven that certain bacteria that dogs carry ensure that children have higher resistance. This means that children are less likely to develop certain diseases or allergies.
More active life
When there is a dog in your life, you get to live a more active life. Dogs need attention, they need to be played with, trained and walked. This way, you, your child and your dog will have a more active life. And a more active life is a healthier life.
Better company and mood
In addition to everything mentioned above, growing up with dogs also provides better company and mood. This is for you, your child and your dog. Studies show that children who grow up with dogs are more social and confident. In addition to this, they are less moody compared to children of the same age in homes without dogs.
Are you ready? Will your dog soon be able to shine in your home? We wish you lots of fun and happiness with your four-legged friend!
