Your children’s thoughts on their dogs

Whether they’re talking gibberish, asking deep philosophical questions, or giving their toys life advice… kids will say the craziest (and cutest!) things. This month we took to social media to ask the YuMOVE community to share their children’s thoughts on their dogs. The answers were so cute, we just had to share them with you!

We may have received some unique and bizarre responses... but one thing’s for sure – the unbreakable bond between a child and their dog can never be matched! The responses we received are testament to this unconditional love. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s take a closer look…

1. How do you know your dog loves you?

“She loves me a big bit because she likes licking me!” – Tommy, age 3 and a half
“He smiles at me and paws me for a cuddle… and he just does!” – anon, age 8
“He kisses me.” – Zak, age 4
“Because he’s always with me!” – Tristan, age 7
“Because she told me.” – Ben, age 5
“He’s always glued to me.” – Cayetana, age 6
