Which dog breed is best for a pet to be gifted to kids

We know how much your child has been begging you to have a pup at home, and how much you fear an addition in the family because of all the responsibilities that go with it. This Thanksgiving or Christmas or New Year is probably the best time to realise the long cherished dream of your child to bring a pet home. Wouldn’t your heart melt with pleasure when you see your little one jump in glee on finally having a pup as a gift from you? Well, if you have already decided on it but are slightly confused on which breed to choose for your family, we are here to help you out. Although a lot depends on your personal favourite, we advise you to consider a lot of things before coming to a decision.

The first thing to consider is your family’s living arrangement. Do you have ample space to bring a large breed? For large athletic dogs, it would be great if you have a big yard for him to stretch his legs. In apartments with little spare space, it would be best if you consider having a small or medium sized breed. The personality, grooming needs and activity requirements are also to be kept in mind before deciding on a particular breed. Let us talk about a few breeds and then you can decide for yourself.

Pug- Who wouldn’t be delighted to see this cute and clever breed of dog with wrinkly faces and sparkling eyes? Pugs are enthusiastic and exuberant and are great for kids as they are always eager to run, jump and play. They may top out at twenty pounds which means it is easily manageable by kids who can leash and take them on a walk. They are low maintenance and rarely bark making them a good choice with families having infants or small kids.

Labrador- Training a Labrador is easy as they are quite an intelligent breed. This is one of the most popular breeds as pets because of their friendly nature and patience stance. If trained accordingly, Labrador can do everything including hunting, dock diving and tracking. Because of being extremely versatile, this breed is one of the child’s favourite. You will love them for their obedience and their high energy levels which they are proud to flaunt.

Golden Retriever- The best aspect of a Golden retriever is the absolute patience it has with people. That is why they are great to gift to kids who you suspect might even tug at the tails of the dog playfully. Golden Retrievers are gentle and are known for their caring temperaments. That is why they make one of the best breeds for kids. They are also one of the smartest dog breeds making it easier for your kid to train them and make them follow commands.

They are especially affectionate with children and are loyal, playful, clever and lively; all that you would want in a dog to be gifted to your child.

At Waggfluence we think it was a great decision on your part to gift your child a pet because they learn a lot in the process of being their friends. Kids learn to take up responsibility of another being and isn’t this marvellous? They learn patience, compassion and the ability to receive and reciprocate love when they have a pet to take care of. Also teaching and training the pets makes them look for innovative ideas to do so and this sharpens their out of box thinking skills.
