I. “Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods.”
― Christopher Hitchens, The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Nonbeliever
II. I believe many of us had expected to have a pet when we were a little child. Maybe a dog, a cat or even a fish, we tried to convince our parents by promising to take care of our pets, clean their rooms, be responsible, not fight with each other anymore. However, due to some reasons, maybe our bad habits, parents can’t believe we will change, just for getting a pet. Some of the parents might think our interests in pets will only stay a while, but that’s not true.
III. Living in a family with a dog, I can tell we’re not adopting him just because of interest. I love my dog. We adopted him when I was a kid and treat him as one of our family members. I believe he helps me be the person who can express my love to my parents better and live healthier.
IV. Today, I am here to convince you that all kids should have pets except for someone has pet hair allergy.
V. I will show some health issues related to kids, having pets will help those kids avoid or

My companion animal placement was with a program that organises the fostering and adoptions of greyhounds, often getting 30 dogs into foster homes and 30 dogs into adoptive homes every month. As such, they and the veterinary clinic they associate closely with are in charge of establishing a preventative healthcare routine for hundreds of dogs through their foster programs and attempting to persuade adopters to maintain this routine.
Pet care of an animal is very important because without the care of it the animal can die. An animal’s home or cage should be suitable for them. It should be sufficient allowing enough freedom. Animals should be feed nutritionally daily or according to their needs. Animals must have fresh water available to them. Their bedding should be comfortable enough for them and well put together were their not able to eat through it. All accessories and materials should be kept clean with detergent and unharmful substances.
“ Some pets, come into our lives and leave paw prints on our hearts, and we are never the same.” ( anonymes) 'This is telling you that animals come to us and as soon as you let them in you will never be the same also change and grow because of animals. And therefore pet can give us protection,love and you can learn from them.
The effects of pet ownership have been shown to be beneficial for humans as well as animals in need of a home. People purchase pets for a variety of reasons, spanning from a need to get more exercise, a desire for companionship, to a desire for unconditional love. Other people simply just love animals and their lives feel complete without a furry friend. However, not all of the causes of pet ownership are positive. Some people purchase a pet because they think the animal looks cute but abandon the pet after they discover the hard work it requires to train it and keep it healthy. Other people do so out of ego, such as purchasing a large, vicious pet they hope will intimidate others and later find they cannot control. The motivational causes of owning a pet will determine the eventual effects of ownership.
Ever since I was little, I had wanted a dog. For my parents, however the idea of having a dog was sort of a nightmare. They didn’t believe I was ready for this massive responsibility, and expected they’d be the ones taking care of the dog. This went on for years and I always received the same answer, that a dog was too great of a responsibility. However, this all changed a little over a year ago when my Uncle Bill was looking to breed his yellow lab Cloe, thus I put him in contact with my cousin Chris who has an excellent black lab stud. Both Brady and Cloe have developed into fantastic gun dogs, and knowing the puppies were coming from their genetic background made this the perfect opportunity to finally buy a dog, making it now or never. It was fairly simple getting my dad to climb on board with the idea of buying a puppy, my mom was another story. Finally, she caved in and made it vastly clear that she would have no part in taking care of the dog. (Just for a quick side note, she now happens to love that dog and spoils him every chance she can.) Approximately ten months ago I can happily say that I was able to bring home a black lab puppy that I named Trigger. Being a first time dog owner, I hadn’t the slightest idea how to raise a puppy, nor how much work they truly were. I was clueless on everything from potty training to obedience training. Becoming a dog owner has changed me, since it given me the sense responsibility. For example, before owning a dog my studies
The discussion focus on several mandatory elements required for the construction and development of a clear and precise report based on the aspects of a training manual for people who adopt a family pet. It outlines:
It is a well known fact that the human body fights disease by creating antibodies designed specifically to rid itself of that disease. The same concept works with allergies. The hygiene hypothesis suggests that children who are raised in houses that are too sterile are more likely to be susceptible to common allergies, such as pet dander (Children, pets, and allergies). Dr. Erika Von Mutius developed this hypothesis by studying children in East and West Germany. She was surprised to find that the underprivileged children in East Germany who were raised in less than desirable conditions and, therefore, exposed to more
Have you ever had a classroom pet? Would you like a animal in your class every day? There are many people who strongly support class pets, but there are also many people who disagree. Some researchers think that the pets help kids have a good companion or learn responsibility, but others think that it is cruel to put that kind of trauma on the animals. I don’t think we should have classroom pets. We should not have them because it is taking them out of their natural state of living, and with all those little kids around it depresses the animals. Having a classroom pet is not fair to the animal.
Ever since I was a little kid, I had always wanted a dog. However, the idea of having a dog for my parents was sort of a nightmare. They didn’t think I was ready for that big of a responsibility, and that they would be the ones taking care of it. This went on for years and they would always respond with the same answer, that a dog was too big of a responsibility. Until chance came where the perfect opportunity to finally get a dog arrived at our feet, so it was now or never. It was pretty easy to get my dad on board for the whole dog idea, my mom on the other hand was another story. Finally, she caved in but made it very clear that she would have no part in taking care of the dog. Just for a quick side note she now happens to love that dog and spoils him any chance she gets.
More information that supports pets hurting kids from source 1 is, “Bacteria such as salmonella can be spread by the handling of reptiles and frogs, and rodents such as hamsters can carry transmittable diseases. This shows that the good intentions of helping kids learn life lessons can not only hurt the animals, but the people around the animals too. We indirectly hurt kids if we let them near these types of pets. Not all pets carry diseases, but one that have been brought up by cruel breeders have a greater chance to have these problems. Nobody wants kids to get disease from their own pets or have animals get kept so badly, so why risk it just to
The pet industry is one that is up and growing in the United States of America.” Between 2009 and 2013 pet owner ship increased from 53.6% to 56.5%, which placed ownership in about 66.8 million households.” (Stewart) With the substantial increase of all the pets in the US, the demand for all types of veterinarians increase. Just like human being’s animals get sick as well. With the presence of trends such as pet humanization, pet owners are beginning to care about their animals more than ever. “According to the survey, 70 percent of pet owners are willing to spend more on their animals to ensure wellness of their pets. The other 30 percent agreed that they would shop for the best products available for their pets.” (Stewart) This again shows
Look into one of your pet’s eyes, what do you see? I see an animal that trusts you and believes that you will never hurt them or do anything to harm them. Animals’ should not be used in research because animals don’t react the same way we do when there is a drug put inside them.
&#8220;I think I could turn and live with the animals. They are so placid and self-contained,'; writes American poet Walt Whitman (Schellenberg 1). Yes, pets have been part of human culture throughout history, and in American households, they are more common than children. It is reported that 58% of U.S. households have at least one pet, whereas only 35% have children (Whitaker; Witherell 76). Owners spend billions of dollars each year on pet food, accessories, and veterinary care, but apparently pets give back, too (Schellenberg 1). Medical studies show that pet companionship offers concrete health benefits (Simross 14). While only in the past few decades have scientists become interested in the benefits of pets on human health
