Started Day Thirteen - Out of Sight, Out of Mind
Puppies and children can be a
great mix as long as you provide 100% supervision and ongoing
instruction to both. Do not allow mistakes to happen when you are
NOT there. Here are common mistakes people make with children and
1. They allow rough play and games such as
tug-of-war before the puppy is trained.
2. They allow rough handling of the puppy, shrieking
and running around, or surprising the puppy and grabbing it too
tightly without "proofing" the dog against aggression to children
and food bowl aggression.
3. They don't involve the children in training
the dog or teach them appropriate games to play with the dog.
