The Advantages of keeping a Pet
The main advantage of having a pet of any description is that it gives you something to love and care for. It teaches children responsibility. I always love to see children in the park with their dogs as the children get so much out of the fun a dog can bring. Having to feed or clean up after a pet of any description is a good for children.
Having a pet to care for is a great comfort for many people. The pet represents companionship and a reason to get up in the morning for many people old and young.
Horses are great for children with special needs, riding for the disabled is a wonderful organisation. It helps people connect with their feelings and helps express themselves even if it is only a smile. Animals bring out the best in most people giving them something to love.
