Infographics By DDT / December 27, 2016 Share 7 Tweet Pin 0 Share 0 Nowadays, a great number of young children and young adults are addicted to social media and online gaming. Only a significant number of them have the time or make an effort to go outside and play, enjoying the great outdoors and interacting with other kids in real life. In fact, studies show that children these days have poor social interaction. Various reasons are behind this, but as parents, we could make a difference and uplift the children, create a childhood in that they have lasting memories. This is the part where we introduce pet dogs. At some point in our lives, we have had a pet or two, and we made such great memories with them. Dogs are very caring and loyal in nature. Also, studies have indicated that having pet dogs have great advantages for children as they are growing up. From being good listeners to helping children socialise are among the benefits children can get from having pet dogs. If kids have dogs at home, they will be forced to put down their phone or tablet and take a walk with the dog, as dogs naturally need to go outside and play. This will also encourage kids to interact with others who are out there walking their four-legged pet buddies. Their conversation could anchor around having pet dogs to just about anything. This allows the child to jumpstart on developing his or her social interaction skills. Check out the colourful infographic below where you get to see the other benefits of having pet dogs at home and the advantages they can bring not only to your kids but also to the whole family.
