I know that dogs in general are
great companions. Having them come
around in hospitals as therapy dogs,
helps the patients with moral and
the healing process.
They are using dogs in courthouses,
to help ease a tension and anxiety
when a witness testifies before the
court. Seeing a familiar dog with
a warm and friendly temperament puts
a witness at ease before they have
to testify. Its very helpful for kids.
These studies are showing the health benefits for children.
Having a dog may stave off disease for toddlers. They maybe
less likely to get ear infections.

In fact, kids in this demographic were 30 percent less likely to experience coughs, ear infections and symptoms such as stuffiness, runny nose, sneezing and congestion.
Those born in homes with canines were 44 percent less likely to develop ear infections, something that is so common in children.
I think having pets does help children learn empathy. The daily care for a pet, does teach kids
nurturing skills. As a kid I loved having a dog. My parents had me take our puppy to puppy training
class and dog obedience training when our dog got older.
In between school, I learned to make time, to walk our dog, training,
grooming, and nutrition. My dog had epilepsy, so I learned about seizures
and what to do when my dog had one.
Its important that you get the right pet for your family. I do believe
that having a dog and pets in general does make children happier. They always
have someone to talk to. When they come home from school there is always a
friendly dog to greet them.
