HOW A FAMILY DOG COULD HELP YOUR PRESCHOOLER

Written by on July 6, 2020

Need some back up from #science that a dog may be a good addition to your family? Cool, Pediatric Research has you covered. They released a study that children from dog-owning households had reduced likelihood of many negative behaviors and increased physical movement.

Not too surprisingly, owning, walking and playing with a family dog could encourage your toddler’s social and emotional development. Toddlers from dog-owning families were found to be less likely to have conduct and peer issues, and higher levels of prosocial behaviors.

Owning a dog also encourages responsibility, empathy, trust, kindness and lots of other positive traits. Perhaps this was the push you needed to convince someone… Good luck!
