How many of us learned to be responsible caregivers as a result of caring for the family dog? Having a pet teaches children to respect another living being from an early age. Older children learn to be reliable and responsible - feeding, grooming and walking a living creature that depends on them. For kids who are too young to do much of the caregiving, they watch us model that behavior and the lessons of proper care, reliability, and trust become ingrained early. Take your kids with you to vet appointments so they can see all that's involved in caring for the dog. Let them ask questions and understand what's happening. Sometimes teenagers bring the family dog to the vet and this allows the teenager to understand the dog, to learn more about its health and ailments and how perhaps they can help give the dog a more comfortable lifestyle.
