Have you ever had or have a dog as a pet? If you did, you already know the advantages of having one at home, especially if you have small kids. Generally dogs are not dangerous to adults and children alone. They can be easily trained to obey you and behave both indoors and outdoors. Aside from training a dog to become obedient and behaved, there is a more important benefit in having one – training them to help you look after your children.
