2. Dogs:

Man’s best friends have always been regarded as man’s ideal pet since the beginning of time.

A cuddly puppy is the most idyllic children’s pet. Choosing a dog is more than just falling for their big sweet eyes. There are some dogs that may not be suitable for children. So to be on the safe side, always ensure it is well-socialized and comfortable around children with no history of trauma or abuse like war dogs have.
