National Kids and Pets Day is celebrated on 26 April every year to recognise the special bond between children and pets. As providers of pet products, we are passionate about celebrating pets and the many benefits that a pet can have on children, of any age.
The human-animal bond is deep and precious, but there is almost something magical about the bond between a child and their pet. If you’ve grown up with a pet, you know that your childhood pet—your first pet—is one that holds a special place in your heart.
As a parent, even if it hasn’t yet happened yet, you can expect your child to plead for a pet at some point. It’s practically a given! Whether it’s a cat, a dog, a guinea pig or even a snake – every child wants a pet.
Of course, as sensible adults, we weigh up the costs and obligations that come with owning a pet. However, all kids think about is how much fun they’ll have with their furry (or scaly) new friend!
