  • Teaching Children How to Treat Dogs

    Unless children know how to approach a dog, their enthusiasm and curiosity may provoke growls or bites. Teach your children that they should:

    * Stay away from a strange dog unless the owner is present.

    * Be especially wary of dogs raised in homes where there are no shildren.

    * Kep a safe distance away from a dog's mouth and paws.

    * Enter a home where a dog lives only if someone who can control it is theere.

    * Make a fist and let the dog sniff it before petting the dog.

    * Leave a dog alone while it's eating or sleeping and never take away its food.

    * Forbear tugging a dog's tail or ears, teasing it, or squeezing it too hard.
