Even the friendliest pet ahould be supervised during child-dog interactions.

Small, excitable, unpredictable children can cause anxiety and agression in any dog under the wrong circumstances. Do not allow children to interrupt your dog during mealtime, toy time, or nap time, and always use a leash and collar to control your dog around unfamiliar children. Growling, curled lips, and agitation are definite warning signs to end the interaction.
