Since they are often referred to as “man’s best friends,” dogs and people clearly have a special affinity. They are flexible creatures that form bonds with other humans, even little children. Dogs are incredibly social animals, just like us. All dogs have a mating drive and den instincts; it is a component of what is referred to as their “herd instinct,” according to Alexandra Bassett, principal dog trainer and behavior specialist for Dog Savvy in Los Angeles.
It seems sense that a dog who is devoted to his family and has a strong group instinct would guard the new arrival when they arrived. Dogs love kids and can develop close relationships with them as a result of their shared time. A child’s yearning for a playmate and someone to pay attention to them, especially in the case of a young puppy, is shared by both dogs and children.
Your child’s development may benefit physically and psychologically from the special bond they build with their puppy. The fact that dogs make kids happy is one of the most important advantages. The chemical foundations of happy emotions, serotonin and dopamine, have been proven to rise in those who socialize with dogs. They also enjoy each other’s company.
