How old did your children have to be before they were allowed to have pets?
We are considering getting a dog for our kids. He would be the responsibility of the kids as far as feeding/watering, cleaning up after, playing with and walking. Obviously we would help out, but they would pretty much be responsible for a pet.
They have simple chores at home that they know that they are responsible for doing and they do.
We think they are responsible enough for a pet but I would like others input on how old their kids were before getting a pet and what are they responsible for.
