A bond with an animal is as important as a bond with people. Pets can be our friends and most of the time there is an emotional connection between an owner and a pet. A pet in your house can bring happiness and even teach things to both the young ones and adults.
Dogs are the most common type of pets and no matter their breed, they always need to go on walks once in a while in order to stay happy and healthy. Because of their necessity to exercise your pet will keep you active and healthy too. Going on a walk with your dog will benefit both of you.
Pets are great companions. It is not always necessary to have a person close to not feel alone. Animals can keep you company the same way a human does it. Your pet will always be waiting for you to come home when you are away.
Pets teach children to be responsible. Having a pet is a great way to teach children to be responsible. Children will be happy to have an animal at home but will also learn the responsibilities of feeding the pet, taking care of its necessities, and making sure it stays happy and healthy.
In some cases, pets will protect you. However, not all pets are able to protect your home, for example a turtle or a fish cannot scare burglars away from your home but dogs sure can. Only some pets can make you feel safe, but all of them can make you happy in some way.
