The relationship of children with pets. Our dog has been for 9 years with us, and I can say that our family's relationship with him is most rewarding. It has changed our daily routine.
|Relationship with pets|
Having a pet, be it a dog or a cat or another animal at home, requires commitment, responsibility and dedication. After all, a dog is one of the families.
Children and their living with petsOnly those who have a dog at home can understand what their relationship with people is like. If they asked me to say the advantages of having a dog at home, this article would not end. Maybe that's why I do not understand how there are people who are capable of hurting or mistreating, or abandoning animals.
The relationship of children with animals is very special, as well as the care we should have. Here are some tips:
1- One thing is the dog of the family and another thing is a neighbor's dog. For this reason it is necessary to teach your child that when he sees an animal in the street, never approach him without first asking the owner of the animal if there is any danger.
2 - If you see a nervous dog or that is in the stage of nibbling, tell your child that the dog does not want to play at that time, but never say that dog can bite or that the dog is bad.
3- You should never leave a small child alone playing with the dog, until he is not responsible enough. In the learning stage children can be cruel to their peers, including dogs. Despite his patience, the dog's reaction will be to defend against any aggression.
4- Encourage the empathy of your child towards the dog, showing affection towards the pet. When caressing the child in the presence of the dog, do the same with your pet so that she does not feel marginalized.
5- Stimulate and teach the child to play with the dog. Examples: throwing a soft ball, scratching his head, tickling him. Experts say that children who grow up with animals are more calm, responsible and loving.
6- Teach your child to take care of the dog and to have responsibilities with him. To be aware of meal times, to make sure you have water in your plate, etc.
7- With patience and understanding, you will get a good adaptation of the child and the dog. It will be fun to watch them play together, and change love.
8- Teach your child to take care of the dog. Ask them to accompany them to the vet when the dog has a disease or needs to receive a vaccine.
9- For the dog to recognize your child as well as any other person that enters your house, let the dog smell them. The dog will memorize the smell and accept it.
10- If possible, choose a breed of dog more appropriate to living with children. There are races, such as shepherds, for example, who become guardians of children. They watch them and do not separate from them. There are other races, like the 'cocker' that are more nervous and jealous. It is best to consult a veterinarian.
Anyway, there are some animals that are not recommended to be children's pets, and it is better to avoid them.
