Kids’ Pet Club is a Fun New Online Hub for Kids that Love Pets
I am absolutely thrilled to announce the soft launch of the Kids’ Pet Club site and the YouTube Channel for testing (the Youtube Channel will not show up with the correct URL until we have 500 subscribers which is very frustrating- please Subscribe if you have kids that love pets).
Kids’ Pet Club an Online Content Hub for Pet-Loving Kids (ages 3-13) and families. We will be sharing and testing a variety of age-appropriate educational, engaging and entertaining content, activities, and videos featuring pets and kids.
I love pets and have had dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, lizards, gerbils, tortoises and fish. We have had considerable success sharing stories and information about Dogs and Puppies on the TV series, YouTube Channels and sites for Talent Hounds, Backseat Barkers and MyPugNation. We have seen first hand the difference pets, particularly dogs, can make in the lives of kids hospitals, schools, libraries, homes, emergencies and courtrooms. They can help with autism, PTSD, anxiety, reading, illnesses and physical disabilities. They can also help reduce stress and allergies, and increase empathy and focus.
We believe it is important to teach kids about responsible pet care early. We did some research and found they were getting a lot of entertainment and facts about pets on YouTube and online, but there did not seem to be much centralized channels and content just for them, just on pets.
We thought it would be both fun and helpful to set up a hub for kids and empower them to laugh and learn about pets with us and also to become Ambassadors for their pets and share their knowledge and love of pets.
We produced the popular TV series called Pop It! that empowered kids to teach other kids to dance and wanted to do something similar with pet care. Kids generally love seeing themselves and their lives reflected.
We will be testing different content for different ages including mini documentary segments, information, activities and DIYs and also Dog Song Sing-Alongs and Read-Alongs for the younger kids. I hope that this site and content can build into a tremendous source of fun and facts for kids and care-givers.
My own rescue pug Kilo is featured, as well as dogs from Talent Hounds, a group of young Ambassadors and our animated characters Penny P Pug and Digger the Dachshund.
