We all know owning a pet comes with huge responsibility and it can be tricky deciding what pet suits not only your kid, but the whole family. We have compiled a list of the 3 best pets for small kids.
Small puppies: They are small in size and can be housed indoors. They will teach them about day-to-day maintenance of a pet as well as daily grooming to avoid tangles in their fur.
Birds: Small birds are another great choice. If you do decide to get a bird, our top recommendations would be a finch, canary, or parakeet. As a pet they each require a cage to be maintained, feeding, and room to roam. They are pretty low maintenance and by nature do not require a lot of attention or one-on-one time.
Fish: Fish are a great choice as a first pet. They teach children all the fundamentals of owning a pet without the huge responsibility that lies with a larger animal like a cat or dog. With a variety of fish available, your child has an abundance of choice. Each of these is relatively low maintenance. Their main requirements are tank cleaning and feeding.
