Understanding the benefits of pets for kids

We aim to advise potential pet owners on the practical information of choosing a pet for your family.

  • Why pets are beneficial for kids, the common reasons to get a family pet, the kind of pets that are best suited for a young family, as well as the many emotional, physical, and mental benefits a family pet can have for the well-being of children.
  • Understanding pets for children with special needs – such as autism-friendly dogs who help reduce stress, heighten social abilities, and aid in the behaviour and learning capabilities of autistic children.
  • Advice on taking care of family pets – including basic care and grooming tips, regular vet visits, and ensuring the health and well-being of both family pets and service animals at home.
  • Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about pet ownership, useful links, and other helpful resources to help families choose the best kind of pet for their kids.
