Having a Pet Can Make Your Child Smarter

But you’d be surprised at the pet that makes kids the smartest of all!

Studies show that children who grow up with a pet are more creative and do better in school than kids without a furry friend.

It has been found that kids with dogs, cats, and horses fare well, but they aren’t usually solely responsible for walking, litter-scooping, or grooming and cleaning out stalls, so their degree of responsibility is significantly less. Still, they are smarter than children who have no pets.

But it has been found that kids with reptiles and rodents as pets are more involved in the daily caretaking of the animals without needing help, which gives them an even greater sense of responsibility that translates into happier kids with better grades.

And, according to the research, the cleverest pet owners of all are kids with…chinchillas!
