18 Photos That Prove Dogs Are The World’s Best Babysitters

Dogs are the best kind of friends, and it seems that they share a special bond with little kids. It’s almost like they will do just about anything for a child. So it’s no surprise why they make great babysitters!

In fact, you may be surprised to learn that pit bulls are nothing like their bad reputation as vicious fighting dogs implies. In fact, for centuries, they were known as the “nanny dog,” and they were often in charge of looking after their family’s children.

If that incredible fact didn’t convince you, here is some heartwarming proof that dogs are the world’s best babysitters…

1. Dogs are naturally good swimmers—they do have a stroke named after them after all. If your child is ever tempted to wade out into the middle of the pool while you’re not looking, you can rest assured that your pooch will do her best to alert you and swim out to help them if they need help.

2. Almost everyone has experienced the joy of coming home after a long, grueling day at work or school and being showered with kisses by your loving pup. They’re the exact same way with children. You might have to battle them over who can give who more kisses.

3. They don’t mind being poked and prodded. If your toddler happens to grab your dog by the jowls because she doesn’t know any better, you don’t have to worry about her being bitten. Dogs are practiced in Babysitter 101, and they know kids don’t mean any harm. They’re just playing! If anything, your kid might get extra licks to the face.
