In addition to being loyal, affectionate companions, pets provide a number of other benefits for children. Keep reading to learn more about why adopting that cuddly puppy your child has had her eye on may actually be a very good idea.
Pets Teach Responsibility
Having a cat or dog that your child must care for can help teach your child responsibility. By feeding, grooming, playing with, and cleaning up after their pets, children are not only taught responsibility through pet ownership, but also how to nurture and act as a caregiver for another living creature.
Pets Promote Learning
Not only can animals provide therapy for developmentally challenged children, but they can also promote learning in all kids. Some studies have revealed that children are more relaxed and comfortable around animals than humans when asked to read aloud. The presence of a nonjudgmental critter can make the act of reading much more appealing to a child.
Pets Offer Comfort
Pets offer a great source of comfort for children. When kids find themselves upset or scared, they frequently turn to their pets for warm, loving pets for support.
Pets May Prevent Allergies
Some research suggests that having multiple pets in a household may actually decrease a child’s risk of developing certain allergies. In one study, children exposed to at least two cats or dogs in infancy through early childhood were shown to have fewer positive test results to both indoor and outdoor allergens.

Puppies have different nutritional needs than adult dogs, and selecting the right food for your young canine is essential for promoting healthy growth and development. Puppies grow the fastest during their first six months of life; they require a food that contains high animal protein to create new body tissue as they grow, calcium for strong bones and teeth, iron for healthy blood, and DHA, a key ingredient in brain and central nervous system health. To learn more about the unique nutritional needs of puppies, watch this video.

Dogs are wonderful pets that can bring years of joy and companionship. With hundreds of dog breeds to choose from, selecting a puppy with which to forge a lasting and mutual friendship can be a daunting task. Use the information below to help you choose a canine companion that will complement your personality and lifestyle.
For active or athletic individuals who enjoy the great outdoors, energetic dogs who love walking and exercise make ideal companions. Medium-large breeds, such as Doberman pinscher, Border collie, German shepherd, and Dalmatian are good choices for outdoor enthusiasts.
To match your incessantly busy, on-the-go nature, choose a dog that is more independent and does not require as much attention as other breeds. Independent breeds such as Alaskan malamute, Russian wolfhound, and Chinese shar-pei are great fits for busy bees.
If you are a busy socialite who loves to throw parties or be around people, a social dog that also enjoys the company of people will fit your personality well. Consider a bichon frise, English or Irish setter, Labrador retriever, beagle, or Siberian husky.
For the globetrotter seeking a steadfast companion that shares an affinity for travel, consider choosing a smaller breed dog. Yorkshire terriers and Maltese dogs fit into carry-on luggage and are generally calm and quiet, making them ideal travel buddies.
If you are a homebody at heart, you may be interested in a canine companion that relishes love and affection. Consider a Chinese crested, French bulldog, Pomeranian, or toy poodle. If you are also interested in a canine that will serve as a watchdog, consider beagles, bloodhounds, and American cocker spaniels, which thrive on attention and will bark to alert their owners of a stranger’s approach.
If you live in Brooklyn and are interested in adopting a puppy, give Puppy City a call at (347) 263-8412. We pride ourselves on being a health-conscious, puppy-friendly facility. Our showroom features Yorkies, Maltese, Shih Tzus, English and French bulldogs, and more!

As much as you love your dog, you may not always have the ability to watch him all the time. Long hours at the office, out-of-town conferences, and family vacations might require you to hire a dog walker so your pet can get the regular care and attention he needs. Finding a reputable dog walker is no different than seeking a trustworthy babysitter. You’re putting the wellbeing of your furry family member into the hands of another, and it’s important to do your due diligence when selecting someone who can handle the job.
Conduct an In-Person Consultation
You wouldn’t hire a new employee without meeting him first, right? Why would you do any differently when choosing a dog walker? A reliable dog walker will welcome the opportunity to sit down with you and address your concerns. He should also take an interest in your dog. A prospective dog walker who doesn’t inquire into your pet’s habits and special needs is not a suitable applicant.
Ask for References
Before agreeing to any working relationship with a dog walker, request references or testimonials from prior or current clients. There’s no better way to find out if a dog walker is a worthwhile candidate than by talking to others who have used his services.
Observe Your Dog’s Behavior
Once your dog has gone out with his new walker once or twice, evaluate how your dog acts upon coming home and prior to going out again. If your dog refuses to leave your home, it may indicate that a dog walker is not treating him with the care and respect he deserves. On the other hand, a dog that is eager to go on walks is evidence that the dog walker is doing a great job.

Have you added a new puppy to your family? Then it’s time to implement some housetraining habits to keep your puppy comfortable and your home clean.
This video discusses how integral structure is to having a housetrained puppy. That means taking out your puppy at regular intervals, such as when she wakes up and after she eats. You might also invest in a crate to avoid nighttime accidents, as puppies typically do not eliminate where they sleep. Paying attention to signs that your puppy needs to go to the bathroom is also important. If your furry friend sniffs the floor or circles it, take her outside immediately.
Puppy City in New York has a wide variety of Yorkie, Maltese, Bulldog, and Shih Tzu puppies for sale. Call us at (347) 263-8412 for more information.
