Finding Pets For Your Kids

About a year ago, I realized that my kids had never looked after pets. I wanted them to be able to really enjoy their life to the fullest, so I started looking for more opportunities for them to reach out to animals. It was amazing to see how much of a difference a pet or two made in their lives, and pretty soon, they seemed happier and more interested in the world around them. This blog is all about finding great pets for your kids and making sure that they stay healthy and happy. Check out this blog for more information.

Choosing The Right Big Dog

If you are looking for a large breed dog and you want to bring home a family dog, then you want to consider a few different things to make sure you bring home a dog that will blend into your family well. Here are some of the things you want to think about.

Temperament

When you are looking for a large breed of dog to be a family dog, you need to be sure you go with a breed or breeds that are known for having great temperaments. This way, you will decrease your chances of that dog growing up to give you problems with aggression. However, keep in mind that all dogs are different, so you still need to take steps to keep the dog friendly. It is important for you to plan on socializing any puppy with kids and other dogs regularly to decrease the chances of aggression in the dog's future.

Shedding

If you have a very large dog that is known for shedding, then you should try to get a breed that won't shed as much. For example, if you get a boxer which has shorter fur and isn't known for shedding as bad as many others, then you will deal with fur around your house much less than if you brought home a husky which has a lot of long and thick fur and is known for doing a lot of shedding.

Energy level

You want to know what you will be getting into when you bring a big dog into your home and that you aren't asking for trouble. If you have a small home and you bring home a cute little lab puppy, then be prepared to go on a lot of walks to help the dog burn off its energy, or your house can end up turning into a dog playground.

Consider a Bernedoodle

One good way you can go is to bring home a sweet little Bernedoodle. This dog is part St. Bernard and part Poodle. Mixing these two dogs gives you a dog you can expect to have a good family-oriented temperament, be nice and big in size, not fill your home with fur when it sheds (poodles don't shed), and to have a nice amount of energy. The dog will happily go on walks with you and play with the kids, but the dog won't fly off the walls and become destructive out of boredom.

Contact local pet stores to see if you can find Bernedoodles for sale.
