Top 5 Reasons Your Kid Needs a Dog

September 29th, 2016

A dog may be your child’s ticket to becoming a great reader. It’s been proven that dogs are an awesome and effective audience for your child to practice reading. They’re non-judgmental so children feel safer stumbling over words and making mistakes in front of a furry friend than a human one.

4. Social Skills

Recent studies have shown that kids who grow up with dogs tend to be more empathetic and social than those who haven’t. And playing with a day teaches your child about care giving, listening to cues, and being affectionate.

5. Life Lessons

Teaching a dog to sit, stay, and come take patience and consistency. Helping your child train a dog teaches your child about routine, compassion, and understanding. These are good lessons for anyone at any age!
