Dogs and Kids
Dogs are more likely to see children as equal to them in the family pack. Many dogs may look at children as other dogs or siblings. They love them but often do not respect them. As a result, dogs are less apt to listen to children; they may mouth or nip more, or ge more challenging. Here are some guidelines to help assure a safe environment for both your child and your dog.
- Dogs and children should always be actively supervised by a responsible adult.
- If your child has friends coming over, either supervise the interaction of the dog and the digs, or separate the dog in another area.
