Children Proving Their Dogs Make The Best Companions Growing Up

I’m an adult, having a pet is something I can actually think about. Even though I had a cat as a kid, I’ve always been more of a dog person. Cats tend to be pretty aloof, usually preferring to do their own thing, but dogs? Dogs are incredibly sociable and intuitive, ready to play pretty much anytime. They also have a knack for knowing when you need them most – I’ve had so many dogs snuggle up to me right when I’m not feeling so good, it’s uncanny.
Because of their playfulness, patience, and sociability, dogs are a naturally great companions for kids. Cats often tend to run away if lavished with too much attention, or even lash out sometimes, but dogs and kids are generally on the same page when it comes to having fun. Beyond that, kids can also learn a lot of valuable things from their faithful Fido. Below are some of the lessons that kids with dogs know all about.
