Cute Dogs And Adorable Babies: Compilation

Children and dogs are a natural, but because of a child's small size and unpredictable behavior there are several things every pet owner or parent should know about children and dogs. This article will help parents decide which dog is best for small children, as well as how to introduce a new dog to a family with children. The article will also discuss special health risks and common behavior problems, which can occur between dogs and children.

As a veterinarian and a parent of two small boys that share our home with a dog and two cats, I deal with the issues of children and pets on a regular basis. Children and dogs can be the best of friends if you follow a few of these simple guidelines and precautions.

Choosing the right dog at the right time

Not every dog is right for children and not every child is right for a dog. The vast majority of dog/child problems I encounter involve children under six years of age. If your children are under six you should invest a great deal of time and thought before choosing a new dog. Large dogs that have been bred as guard dogs or have a history of being aggressive or biting should be avoided. Large, high-energy dogs that can knock children over or dogs that bark excessively would not be good choices, as well.
