Teach all children to respect ALL dogs. Do not expect a dog to tolerate children's bad behavior. Keep both your dog and child safe. This does not apply to all dogs and children but please be cautious with your animals and children. Please do not leave your child alone with your fur baby just to be on the safe side.
Do not allow:
Rough play, such as batting the dog's face back and forth with your hand encourages the dog "to go for your hand." Let me share a personal story. While living out in the country, I was standing out in the yard one day when a pack of loose dogs came running through the yard. One of the four dogs, a Doberman, ran right up to me and grabbed one of my hands. Instinctively, I wanted to pull my hand out of its mouth. But didn't do so. If I had done that, I could have injured my hand, and then the situation could have been misread as the dog having bit me. Again, we do not encourage rough play with one's hands.
