Do you think that pets play a part in child development?


I remember when I brought my daughter home I was worried about dog and cat hair in the house affecting her breathing. Her nurse told me that it was good for her to be around animals and it might help her to not develop allergies or sensitivities she might otherwise have due to her condition. What about emotional development? Does having a pet make someone more responsible, caring, lighthearted?
