If you believe your child doesn't need a dog, well, you're wrong and a Cambridge University study proves it!

Regardless of whether or not you have the opportunity to adopt a puppy, a 2017 study, carried out by the famous English university, confirmed the importance that pets, and in particular dogs, have in the lives of children. It would seem, in fact, that children who grow up with a dog at home develop a bond with it that is sometimes almost superior to that which they maintain with their little brother or sister. With the faithful dog friend, in fact, there are no conflicts, communication is excellent, as well as the company: life with your puppy is wonderful!
If you have any doubts about it, check out these fantastic photos:
