There are a lot of great reasons to have a dog, like they are adorable and they provide unconditional love, but according to a study they are also good for your baby’s health. While you may worry about how your baby and pooch will get along, a study out of the University of Alberta in Canada finds their germs can be good for your tot. It seems kids that live in a home with pets have a lower risk of getting allergies or being obese later in life because of the high levels of certain bacteria in the homes. Such early exposure to dirt and bacteria is believed to help boost a child’s immunity early in life.
