When we look back on life we all wanted a pet when we were kids. We were mostly not able to keep a pet because our parents used to be busy or they could not afford to do all the extensive work which is required to be done for a pet. However, there are a few reasons here which can help one convince their parents to keep a pet.
Teach selfless love: A dog’s love is always unconditional. A child who has a pet dog would know pure love. A person who is capable of loving a dog unconditionally is able to attach and love anyone. This makes the individual more emotional, compassionate and sensitive towards their surroundings. Understanding of care and love: A kid who has a pet dog is able to understand the importance of care and love. It helps in developing nurturing skills in kids and allows them to be smart and caring individuals when they grow up.
The love a kid gets from the pet even acts as a strong emotional support when someone tries to misbehave.
Responsibility: The kids who have a pet tend to be more responsible than others. They learn to take up responsibilities such as taking their dog out for a walk, feeding it on time and taking care of its needs. This helps in making the child better prepared for its future where he or she can take up responsibilities when grown up.
Stronger immune system: Kids who have had a pet tend to have a stronger immunity than the kids who have not had. The kids who have a pet tend to clean their hands more often because they touch the dog. Due to constant contact with the dog their body makes more antibodies which helps them prevent most of the infections. This helps them in having a stronger immunity. Help in improving social skills: The kids who have a dog tend to have a better social circle from the very beginning. They tend to have more friends. It has been studied that the kids who have a pet tend to be more friendly because an individual who can treat their animals well and understand their emotions well can definitely gel better with other humans.
A partner forever: A dog is like a constant companion. They act as a big emotional support and can never see you cry. This helps one having a constant feeling of being loved. Even when one does not have anyone he/she knows that the dog loves one dearly.
