Harry and Mac...Taking a Walk

Updated: Mar 29, 2019



Kids tend to think of all of the good, fun benefits of having a pet. Caring for a pet encourages childhood responsibilities. Children with pets display improved impulse control, social skills and self esteem. Sharing the love of a pet forges an additional common bond among siblings.

Cuddling a pet can reduce stress, loneliness and anxiety.

Having a pet, particularly a dog gets children outside more


However at Dragonfly's Early Learning, we know that it is not always possible to have a pet, and, as such, we try to introduce the pets of others to the Centre so that the children can experience the joys of and sharing the unconditional love of a pet.


Quite often, Mac, the Groodle who is an "Honoury" Dragonfly, comes to Kindy to play with the children. Here we see little this little Toddler taking him for a walk on his lead. They both love it!!!!!
