The benefits of raising children around animals are endless: the children are less likely to develop allergies, their immune system becomes stronger, etc.
But the best part? They make friends for life.
Dogs are great for kids’ health
Additionally, children that grow up with pets improve their motor skills through the games they play with their four-legged friends. As they grow up, owning pets also teaches them the value of responsibility.
Doberman and baby: the best of friends
In this case, we see Addison the toddler playing with his Doberman, Lily. Though this video dates back to 2013, it is no less endearing to watch. The baby laughs endlessly at her canine pal, who jumps playfully around her, occasionally grunting and gently nudging. It's clear the dog knows she is playing with a small human – she is so careful not to injure her little friend!
Dobermans have long been branded as dangerous dogs, but this couldn't be further from the truth. They are extremely intelligent and affectionate dogs. Owners must start socialising and training at an early age, and experienced owners are bets for adult dogs of the breed. However, as long as they are in the right hands, they can make wonderful pets!
