Toddler Boy Practices Taking Dog For Walk
Do you remember the first time you asked for a pet? You nagged your mom and dad, begging for that sweet little ball of fluffy that you saw on the street or at the pet store. “I’ll love ‘im, and pet ‘im, and feed ‘im, and walk ‘im…” were probably the words you chanted over and over, in the hopes of convincing mama and dada that you are old and mature enough to take care of another living being.
Now, naturally, parents will think long and hard whether or not they should get their kids a pet of their own, since it is a very big deal having a living, breathing thing to take care of. But since it is an excellent way of teaching kids obligations and routine, some eventually give in to the nagging requests of their little ones.
On the other side, there are kids who have had a pet of their own (sort of) since the moment they were brought home. Every kid needs a friend, but a pet can be the best friend! Especially if they grow up together, the bond can be as deep and unique as siblings’. That pet will teach your child the most fundamental principles of life, like unconditional love, sharing and fair play. What they can also teach kids is a sense of responsibility that comes with taking care of another living, breathing creature. The feeding, grooming and consistent walks are an important part of a pet’s routine and why not let the little ones join in? Like this little guy did with his best buddy.
Deni knows that it's never too early to learn how to take his pup Casper for a walk. Cuteness overload! Casper has been with twins Mia and Deni since inception and has grown accustomed to their daily antics. In this particular case, it was Deni’s turn to learn the importance of daily walks with the dog.
One end of the leash attached to Casper’s collar and the other in Deni’s hand, the boy takes his pet for a quick and short walk around the family home. Probably used to the pace the older humans keep, Casper finds the leash dragging on the floor as some sort of toy, because he keeps biting and pulling on it. The kid’s grip isn’t strong enough to handle the fog’s force, so the lead gets snagged off Deni’s hand and falls to the ground. And you know what that means? Play time!
Deni giggles as he sees his pet run away with the lead in his mouth and darts towards him to grab it. When he does, however, it seems that Casper has changed his mind about the walk and would much rather lounge on the mattress on the floor. Cue another quick game of tug, which ends in Casper’s favor. Deni doesn’t give up on the dog just yet; instead, he kneels in front of him and gives him a few gentle head-bumps, as if urging Casper to play.
