    Introduction pets for your toddler to learn responsibility.

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Looking for a pet idea for younger children to help them understand a learn about responsibility?

    We all want our children to grow up to be responsible young adults and grown ups.  So, when is it appropriate to give children small opportunities to learn and demonstrate responsibility?  This will vary between children, but if you feel like your child is at the stage where they are craving extra stimulation and could handle small tasks of responsibility then why not introduce a pet to help foster this development. 

    There are a number of great pets out there that are more manageable than a dog or cat for a younger child. These pets would be ideal for younger children to help them develop a sense of responsibility.

    Why not try a pet such as; fish, guinea pigs, rabbits (if you live outside of QLD) or chickens.  Small tasks like feeding these pets, checking the chicken coup for eggs or putting the pets in their hutch of a night time are great tasks to help give them a sense of responsibility.   (However it is advised that supervision is still provided with these activities)

    Although if you're more of a dog or cat person and would prefer to have one of these as your pet, then why not try and create tasks to help your child be responsible for these animals too.  Younger children can help look after these pets by brushing them, helping you to feed them, helping to put on their coats of a night time, throwing a ball (with supervision especially for bigger dogs).

    Continue to help your child develop a good sense of responsibility with their pets, by giving them simple age appropriate tasks.

    Are you ready to become a pet owner?

    Last updated 3 years ago

    Pets are great and bring a lot of joy to our lives however there are a few things to consider before welcoming that new furry friend into your life.

     

    Do you have time? – with any new pet (young or old) there is an adjustment period. The pet is in a new environment with new people and needs to become familiar with this. Are you able to provide this pet with attention, play time, exercise, and training?

     

    Can you afford it? – these days everything costs money and pets are no exception. Keep in mind that pets require yearly vet appointments, worming/flea/tick prevention, food, toys, treats, bedding and council registration. Other things to consider are holidays (pet boarding) and unplanned vet trips.

     

    Are you able to accommodate? – are you able to provide a safe home/living space for your new pet? Are there any bushes/trees which are dangerous to pets? Do you have room indoors and outdoors? Are you located near a busy road, waterway, school etc? These are some important things to think about before bringing a pet home.

     

    Are you informed? – it is best to research the breed/type of pet you decide to bring home. Learn about the behavioural characteristics, any health issues and what the best diet is. Make note of when vaccinations are due as well as worm/flea/tick prevention. Investigate boarding and training options if required.

     

    Preparation is the key to a happy life with your new best friend.
