I have two young children and we want a dog however my husband insists we should wait until they are older and can help train the dog. Learn responsibility all that good stuff and I agree however I would like to have a dog now. I think our boys would benefit from having a companion to grow up with. Any ideas and opinions appreciated.

Dog for young children but why need already you have two children and they can play to each other then why needs dog. I dont understand the reason for purchasing a dog.

Hi, I don't know how old are your children. I grew up joyfully, accompanied by my first pair of pets, a black cat and a brown dog. We were kind to each other, and became good friends. That was my wonderful memories for my childhood. Now that you are dying to own a dog, I wish you could follow your heart. Dog is loyal friend to humans. It will bring joy and happinesses to your each day. Wish you all wishes come true.

When I was a toddler I remember my dad bringing home a puppy for the family. Its one of my earliest and most fondest memories. I'd go ahead and get the dog now. The dog will bring joy to your young children and perhaps give them a fond childhood memory as well. Also once the kids get a little older the dog will still be around and they'll still be able to get the lesson in responsibility by helping care for it.

I think you discuss it with your husband if you really want a dog. Talk with him about it, that you want a dog so that they will have a companion to grow up with. However, if he still doesn't like it, just obey with him and wait for them to grow up. have a nice day.

then have the dog? Yes, that true, they will develop compassion, care, love for animals and responsibility, Go with it. you don't plan to have bulldog, pitbull, german sheperd dog don't you? Just have something not so dangerous and can go along with your boys. Labrador or golden retriever is nice very sweet and playful. Small types dogs, good dogs are maltese and shitzue. yes, go and let the dog grow with your boys.
