I see pictures and videos of babies and pets cuddling, young children giving hugs to pets... How did the family manage to do that? Of course there's the time and patience, and teaching the pets and children to respect one another. But is there a specific formula for that? Say a family with toddlers, teens, adults and a chihuahua want to add something to the household; good for everyone, possibly low maintenance (not a sit-and-watch-me-no-touching pet, they already have quail, and no farm animals because it's not an option with their house). How would they go about making sure the next pet has a great future with the family? Feel free to share stories about how you chose a pet, and how you went about making sure they and your family were happy together. Thanks!
