The unexpected psychological benefits of having a dog

I was reading an article the other day about just how beneficial it is for children to grow up with pets.

They can:
- enhance social skills
- teach children to be more co operative
- teach sharing skills
- promote a child's role playing skills
- help children to understand feelings
- be a buffer against loneliness
I have attached the above link if anyone wants to read further into this article.
