For most of us, a house just isn’t a home without a pet. Millions of families value their pets as furry family members.

Create a special keepsake to celebrate the important role your pet plays in your family with the Pearhead Pawprints Keepsake Frame. This high-quality, heirloom frame holds both a favorite pet photo as well as a custom pawprint impression that’s easy and fun to make right in your own home.

Do children benefit from having a pet?

Just as every person is different, so is every pet. Regardless of whether your pet is a cat or dog, high-strung or low-key, we all benefit from sharing our lives with a furry friend. This is especially true in households with children. Though many parents worry that having a pet in the home with small children may cause asthma, it turns out the opposite is true. A study performed in Sweden from 2001-2010 and published in JAMA Pediatrics revealed that infants who lived in a home with a dog were actually 13% less likely to develop asthma by age 6 than those who lived in homes without dogs. But the benefits of having a pet during childhood certainly don’t stop there. Children can learn many life lessons from loving and caring for a pet, such as:

  • Responsibility – As children grow and take on pet care duties like brushing, walking, feeding, and bathing pets they learn about being responsible for another being’s health and happiness. This helps develop empathy and the ability to put someone else’s needs above their own wants.
  • Socializing – Having a pet can often bring even introverted children into social situations that they may otherwise shy away from. When you are out with your pet for a walk or playtime, other children naturally show interest. Likewise, most children are proud to share stories about their pets with new friends, which helps them express themselves with ease.
  • Feeling safe – Pets often make children feel safer and give them someone to confide in when feeling lonely or sad. Dogs and cats always seem to listen without judgment and provide comforting companionship in times of loneliness.
  • Stress reduction – As any pet owner knows, curling up on the sofa and petting your dog and cat helps ease the stress of the day. Pets bring a smile to your face, lower your blood pressure, and reduce anxiety for you both.
  • Enjoyment of exercise – Just like kids, pets love to play! Even when parents get too tired to run or throw the football, pets are always there to chase a favorite toy or go for a run. Playing with a dog or cat is an excellent way to keep a child from spending all of his or her leisure time in front of a computer, cell phone, TV or video game.
  • Respect – Caring for a pet can teach a child respect for nature and the importance of being gentle and considerate.
  • Confidence, self-esteem & maturity – As a child grows and becomes more involved with caring for a pet, so does his or her self-esteem and self-confidence. The ‘I can do it’ feeling of walking a pet for the first time or remembering to fill an empty food dish is very empowering to a growing child. When they understand that their pets depend on them, children are usually proud to rise to the occasion.
  • Generosity – Whether it’s sharing a bit of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or scooting over to make room on the bed, children learn how good it feels to be generous by sharing with their pets.

The truth is, pets can have the same impact on family members of all ages! Having a pet in the home can be beneficial for the entire family to strengthen family bonds and remind us what unconditional love is all about. Of course, parents must teach children how to respect a pet’s boundaries, as well as train pets how to behave with children.

  1. I have 2 survivers( one cat and one dog) that look like brother and sister from different mothers. Both are solid black with a button on thier chest.And they don’t know they are different species. Would use this frame with both paw prints together

  2. Oh my gosh, this would be perfect for my dog Ella; a 7 year old Shih-Tzu/ Chihuahua mix. I did have a black lab mix; Chloe, for 16 years and I have a paw print of her paw. I would put their paw prints side by side. I have a beautiful picture of both of them together.

  3. Yes I could use this! I just got a new dog pic and need a new frame! Perfect timing! Love to win!

  4. My beloved dog, Maxx, passed away and this would be the perfect way to remember him. I have a paw print of him and a great picture!

  5. This is a great idea! We’d like to have something like this for our 10 year old pug, (Gizmo). He is beyond precious to all of my family. Wish us luck on winning.

  6. Would love to have this my dog for memories when he passes away

  7. i would love to win this item because i love taking pictures of my dog! I am a broke college kid unfortunately so I can’t really spend the extra money to get them developed into larger photos with nicer frames!

  8. I hope I win!!!

  9. I so appreciate the products that you have! I do also appreciate your low prices, courtesy & respect for customers needs. I enjoy shopping on Persmeds.com. I thank you for making my experience a positive one in every way.
    I would enjoy winning the lovely frame & pawprint! I lost my 17 year old girl last year. What a perfect way to remember her! Dutchess was a wonderful Sheltie!

  10. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THIS TO HANG ON MY WALL SO THAT WHEN I DON’T HAVE MY DOGGIE ANYMORE I WILL HAVE THIS LITTLE PIECE OF HIm THAT I WILL TREASURE UNTIL I PASS. WHAT A WONDERFULL MEMORY.

  11. This would be awesome to have! I’d have to get two more so that I wasn’t accused of favoritism though!

  12. This would be a great way to record the biggest paws of all of the dogs we’ve ever owned. He’s a great shelter dog and we love him so much. I think this is an all-time paw size record!

  13. I hope there is room for two paw prints, as our favorite photo is of the dog & cat.

    My black lab ( Kaylie ) is still with me for a few more months, she is 13 years old & the last one left in her family , she has been my companion & friend , It will be a very sad day when she is gone , I will miss her everyday, the keep sake frame will let me see her & tell her how much I loved her & miss her when it’s time for her to go , thank you for giving me this chance to remember my best friend

  15. This is a lovely idea!! 🐶❤️ I would love to win this!

  16. My sweet dog, Noodle, passed away three years ago and I still miss her terribly. I have her two sisters, Bubbles and Tipper, who are 14 years old and would love a remembrance of each one of them. Thanks.

  17. I would love to be able to do this for our Toy Poodle, he is 15 years old now, we lost our Tea Cup poodle 2 yrs. ago, hit us so hard, we couldn’t decide what to do with her, kept her in the freezer for 2 months, decided to have her stuffed, so she is with us now in her bed on our fireplace… They are like people to us…

  18. Would love this. I have 3 dogs and the oldest is my 10 year old husky. He had been my best friend all these years. He grew very I’ll when he was 3 years old and I almost lost him. We had just lost our other dog who was only 5 from someone poisoning him when my husky suddenly became sick.

  19. My daughter wants to get a paw print tattoo to demonstrate her love for our dog. I, of course, won’t let her. This would be a great way to immortalize our beloved baby dog and might just stop the tattoo discussion! Please pick us!

  20. This a a beautiful idea. My last dog Scamper was 16 years old when he passed and I was able to have a key chain made with his nose print.
    I have a new little man called Baxter and I would like to do something like this for him as well. What a nice thing this would be for a longtime memory of him.
    Thank you PetMeds for the opportunity to win this framed memory.
    We LV our pets!!!

  21. Love my Labrador BUDDY and would love this frame !

  22. This is great! My family would love this!!

  23. Dogs are like my kids. I don’t rescue them, they rescue me. I have one now with cancer. It is so hard. She is like my kid. She is 12 y.o. and still thrives. I lost my great Dane of 8 years to cancer last Christmas. It was a shock. I still cry when I look at her collar on the mantle. This would be a great thing to do with my 12 y.o dog today. I wish I would have known about it with my great Dane. Still having a hard time with that death.

  24. I would love to have this keepsake as about 6 mos ago we thought we’d have to put our baby down, after finding out he has congestive heart failure and wasn’t as playful as he used to be he just wasn’t the same dog. Medicines were gonna cost us over 200.00 a month. Since I’ve been getting all his medicine Thur per meds , vetmedun, water pull and blood pressure pull he’s like a new dog , like his old self. Wanting to play ball, taking walks ect. Thank you permed. U saved our baby’s life!!

  25. This is such an awesome idea. I have a 3 y/o pup that couldn’t wait to get paws in this.
