Dogs are natural born babysitters. They somehow know by instinct how to care and look after a baby. They know how to stop a baby from weeping or crying, how to teach new skills to a baby such as crawling, and how to make a baby laugh or giggle.
For all the things that you expect from a human babysitter, dogs can perform most of them. They would kneel for your kid to give him or her piggyback rides, they are extremely patient and nonchalant when a kid pulls their ears, cheeks, or tail. They help kids get some exercise, process emotions, learn about the world through touch, and get them explore the world around them.
That’s not all though. Research shows that kids that grow up around dogs are healthier and stronger. So, do yourself a favor. Get a dog today and let it babysit your kid when you need it to do so. You don’t have to compensate it for caring your child but you would love your dog for watching after your kid.
