The Most Popular Pet Ideas For Your Kids!

Written by Jake Dunning

If you have children, then it might be a good idea to get a pet for them. Having a family pet can be very beneficial, and a whole lot of fun. There are so many different animals out there that can make great pets. If I could, I’d go through each and every one of them. Sadly, I doubt my hands could manage all that typing, so I’ve decided to pick out a few instead. Here are my three pet ideas for your kids!


We all know that dogs are a man’s best friend, and they can be the perfect pet for your kids. The standout thing about dogs is that they’re loyal and have a long lifespan. They can be with your kids throughout their whole childhood, forming a bond with them. They’re also very easy to train and become a great friend to your kids. You could buy a fully grown dog or you could go for a puppy. Kids love puppies. In fact, everyone loves puppies, there’s not a sane person on this planet that doesn’t love them. With a puppy you get a smaller dog that’s easier to look after but a little bit more hyperactive. That’s a key thing to remember with dogs; they’re very active animals. You can’t keep them locked away inside, you need to take them out for regular walks.

Hamsters are one of the best pet ideas for your children. They’re small and fluffy and cute, everything a child looks for in a pet! The great thing about hamsters is that you don’t have to worry about them making a mess around the house. You can get a big hamster cage for them to spend all their time and run around on a hamster wheel. Plus, they’re small enough for your child to pick up and hold in their hand to stroke. They’re very much a no fuss, no harm, pet to have. If you want a hamster, then why not check out the post on this pet blog about hamster name ideas! That’s another great thing about hamsters, they seem to open up a whole world of possibilities for names. Unlike a dog, you don’t have to call them something that doesn’t sound weird to shout in public.

Another popular pet choice is cats/kittens. Cats are one of the most common pets throughout the country, and for good reasons. For starters, cats tend to be very laid back and like attention. They’ll often be crawling round your legs wanting to be stroked. Plus, they can be a bit more independent than dogs. They’ll wander outside on their own and go on their own walks. But, they’ll always find their way back home. If you don’t want to jump into the deep end, you can start off with a kitten. I’ve always dreamt of having a kitten, I think they’re the cutest things ever. No doubt your kids will squeal with joy if you come home one day with a kitten!
