Pet for a child is a good way to teach a child to LIABILITY, besides playing with a pet have a positive impact on the child's mind, and if the animal is in the house appeared before the birth of a child, it is also the prevention of allergies. Unfortunately, in recent times, many children manifest allergic to animals. If you decide to give your child a pet, then it is better to prepare to pass the necessary tests and trials on one or the other kind of pet, well, except fish. As far as I know, parrots and cats - the most dangerous allergen (they are dangerous for pregnant women, too), but the dogs are less dangerous. When my brother was a little boy, we had a cat and my brother developed a severe allergy to cat hair (choking cough, runny nose and constant temperature), and we had to give a cat to our friends. Since we were used to the constant presence of a pet in the house my parents decided to buy a dog. We have advised a dog that does not shed and has no odor and are also very suitable for children. The breed is called Airedale. The dog stayed with us 10 years and my brother had no cough, no runny nose, no temperature. Now we have a dog of the same breed, and my son has no allergies as well.
My asking is asking for a dog now, but first of all, we live in an apartment, second he is not sure if he will be able to walk him outside 2-3 times a day, and clean after him-a biggest concern. We have a designed pet area in our apartment complex, but I know that having a pet is also expensive-shots, vets visits..
