Consider Your Child's Age And Abilities While Selecting Your Pet
At this point of time, bringing a pet home is lot of responsibility, not just for your little one but you as well.
From feeding, caring, cleaning, taking for walk (in case of dogs) to their overall health, is a task in itself.
Your child can now assist you in doing pet tasks. However, he can’t do all by himself yet. Tasks like feeding, grooming can be done by him. If it’s a dog, he can train him to sit to eat, lie down to sleep. While taking the pet for walks, let him join you.
Invest in books that talk about different pets. Read aloud to your child and educate him about the basics about pets and how to train them. To start with, you can choose cage pets like birds, rabbits.
