Pets and Children
We recently added a new member to our family, a golden retriever puppy named Coco. We love Coco! She has been so much fun to play with and spend time with. However, my son is not too sure of her. She is a puppy and does like to jump and nip at people and we are training her to not do this and to follow other simple commands that a good dog follows. My issue is with Lucas; he is scared of her! She hasn't done anything to really hurt him, he is frightened of her jumping on him. I know this is normal, but it would be nice if I didn't have to be right by his side when we go into the yard or out to the car.
If you have had a pet, how long did it take your children to get used to them?
Was there anything you did to speed up the process?
How did you involve your children with training the pet?
What responsibilities did you giver you children regarding the pet?
