It is hard to find a child that doesn’t dream of having a pet. There is also plenty for parents to love about pets too. Pets can teach your children responsibility, and studies have even found that children with pets have stronger immune systems than those without. We have listed the perfectly suitable pets to care for at home for your children.
12 Best Pets For Kids
1- Dogs: A cute puppy is probably the most suitable children’s pet. Before adopting a dog, ensure that the dog is well-socialized around children.
2- Cats: Cats are one of the cutest animals all over the world. These adoring animals are wise and they are also a pretty common pet for children.
3- Birds: Birds can be wonderfull pets. Owning a bird is more demanding than caring for a turtle or fish. Some birds are highly intelligent. The relatively inexpensive parakeet may be a good starter for kids who haven’t raised birds before.
4- Turtles: Turtles can make the perfect pet if you want something low maintenance and quiet. They are peaceful and calm. Turtles have long lifespans so this is an advantage to have turtles, because your children never live fear of losing their pets.
5- Hamsters: This small cute pet is easy to care for and can even be trained to use litter, but hamsters can be rather nippy, and small breeds (females in particular) can be quite aggressive.
6- Rabbits: Rabbits are active and social. They need plenty of stimulation or they can potentially get bored and destructive. Like cats, rabbits don’t like to be carried around, which may be difficult for children to understand.
7- Guinea pigs: They are less tend to biting than a hamster, take up less space than dogs and cats, and are rather responsive to their owners.
8- Fish: A Goldfish may be the perfect “starter” pet for a child.
9- Ferrets: These animals are extremely playful and will spend hours playing with their toys and human companions. They are social and love spending time with their family. However, ferrets are not a good choice for small children. They will bite, especially when they are younger.
10- Gerbils: Gerbils are popular pets and, like hamsters, are small, inexpensive, and easy to care for.
11- Chinchillas: Chinchillas are a more exotic option for kids who want to watch what their pet does rather than have direct interaction with it.
12- Hedgehogs: If hedgehogs are handled while still young, they will grow to be social with your child.
