Our pets are happy that we are spending more time with them. Now that the kids are home, they can spend more time doting on them. The American Kennel Club has released fun and educational tools for the young dog lovers in our lives.  


From crafts to books to song and dance, there is something for everyone. They have even created a schedule for parents trying to maintain structure and consistency during the day. 

If your kids love reading and they love dogs, the AKC has curated a list just for them. Maybe they can even take turns reading to the family pet. Reading aloud is a great way for beginning readers to practice, and the animals love the attention.

There are lots of ways for kids to stay active with their dogs from playing catch to running around in the yard. The AKC has come up with a list of fun activities from creating dog art to baking treats.
