There are many reasons to bring a Goldendoodle puppy into your family. Doodle dogs are obviously cute, and they bring a lot of joy to your family. Some of the benefits of owning a dog aren’t quite as apparent, though. Did you know that getting a Goldendoodle can help your kids live happy and successful lives as adults?
Relationships and responsibility
It’s not that bringing a Goldendoodle into your home magically makes your kids happy and successful. However, growing up with a pet allows children to develop skills that benefit them throughout life into adulthood.
Raising a dog can help teach children how to develop healthy relationships.
A pet provides friendship and companionship, but that relationship between a family dog and child is more nuanced than a friendship between two children; there’s also a sense of responsibility.
The family pet is a friend for a child, but children also take on a caregiver role. They are responsible for the dog’s well-being. They must make sure that the family pet gets enough food, water, and exercise. There’s bathing, brushing, and grooming. Children help make sure that the family pet is protected and they help teach the dog tricks and basic obedience.
You can’t just care for your pet some days, whenever it’s convenient, or whenever you remember. You are responsible for your pet’s happiness, health, and well-being every single day.
This gives children the opportunity to nurture loving relationships, demonstrate responsibility, and practice their work ethic throughout life.
While kids can learn responsibility and how to nurture relationships with other types of dogs as well, Goldendoodles are ideal for families with small children.
Goldendoodles are sociable dogs, and they get along well with children and other animals. They do well with strangers and they like to meet new people.
Goldendoodles are wonderful dogs for first time owners. They are intelligent, easy to train, loving, and they are forgiving for people who are learning how to raise a dog for the first time.
