In our continuing exploration of finding the “Right Pet For You”, let’s take a look at Children Friendly Dogs.
I get calls quite often from people wanting to know, since they have children, what would be a great dog to get for the family. They’re looking for a pet that is children friendly and will make a good addition to the family. Of course there isn’t one particular breed that’s the best for everybody but I do have four of them that I usually recommend. Let me tell you about them now.
Let’s start off with the Labrador Retriever. To put it simply I love labs. Labs are great dogs and they usually love everybody. The fact that they have a short coat means they are easy for grooming purposes, however keep in mind that they do shed quite a bit.

Many stay in shelters or worse waiting for a good, loving home that may or may not ever happen.

I want this to be a positive article series so for the next few weeks, I want to focus on the “How To’s” of finding the perfect pet for you and your family. My intent is to lessen the unhappy experiences and to greatly increase the positive experiences & relationships.
In the next couple of weeks, we will cover topics such as:

How would you feel if you found out that they’ve discovered a cure for cancer but they’re not going to let anyone know about it? I’m sure you’re all responding to this question by attacking it. “Why would they do that?” “That makes no sense!” “What about the money they could make?”
