This summer, use the Pop ‘N Go ® Pets Playpen as a way to tote around your furry family member. You’ll be able to include them in more family activities without being overwhelmed with responsibility. This means more bonding time for your kids and their pet which will lead to a happier family as a whole!
A Pet is a Forever Friend
Getting a pet isn’t only fun; it’s also a terrific teaching tool. No matter how old or young your pup is, your kids will grow up with them. Even a couple of years spent with a pet can be incredibly formative for a child. Watching a pet’s growth is a powerful learning experience for any young person. By developmentally maturing alongside their dog, they’ll learn a little about life in the process.
As this significant relationship forms, your child will learn about socialization and relationships in general. As a parent, it’s important to make sure the relationship is how it’s supposed to be. If you play the role of provider to your dog, they’ll ultimately respect you more than your kids. It’s your job to change this perspective and make sure your beloved pet sees your kids on the same level as you. By giving your kids some of the responsibility, a healthy bond between them and their pet will blossom.
Teach Your Kid How to Care For Their Pet with the Pop N Go Playpen
With the Pop ‘N Go ® Pets Playpen, you can teach your kids about caregiving without giving them too much free reign. They may not be fully ready to watch the family pet on their own; however, they can more than likely help out in little ways.
For example, when it’s time for your pup to retreat to its play tent, allow your kid to call the command. When your dog is able to run free, let your child be the one to let them out. Soon enough, your pet will see that all of the humans in the family call the shots.
You can also use the Pop ‘N Go ® Pets Playpen as a way to teach your children about their beloved pet’s needs. Give them the job of setting up a safe and cozy space within this pet playpen. They can also take on the task of refilling water or food bowls when need be. By taking on the responsibility of providing comfort to their pet, they’ll inevitably feel more bonded to them.
These small acts will simultaneously teach your kids responsibility while causing your dog to respect them more.
