Dog and child:which dog to choose?

Updated on July 3, 2015

I am tempted to say no. I think this is a false question. All dogs can be good with children or, potentially aggressive elsewhere. There are no rules on the matter. Choosing a breed must be done according to the life of the family, its lifestyle and its environment.
Which dog suits you? Take the test

Beware ideas
The assumptions about race are legion and mostly false. However, it is well known that children (especially between 2 and 6 years), even if they love their partner, are far from being gentle and kind to him.
This is also quite normal, simply because the child during its evolution will test its strength, dexterity, influence and power over the environment ... And the animals are easy targets for them. Especially since if there is conflict, it is often the animal will be punished and not the child (which is incomprehensible to the dog and encouraging for the child).
Speaking of belief here's size: it is common to think that a small dog is less likely that a larger and it will be easier to raise. Big mistake! It is also common to find that the dogs were quickly resort to aggression than large.
Small dog, big mouth
Have you ever noticed that between dogs is often the small looking to do battle with the big? We tend to be wary least a small dog. It is pathetic, you want to take care of the pampered, you wear it and it is more accessible for children ... The attention we pay them more or less gently, may well be perceived as threats to the dog.
While a medium or a large dog may simply grumble to prevent the little hand, is often obliged to act to enforce.
Hosting a dog is a family decision that will involve every family member. While it is important to educate his dog on arrival at the house so that it adapts to its environment, it is essential to educate children to respect animals whatsoever. The respect and the key to any good relationship, it is no exception, it is in the welfare and safety of each.
Educating children to everyday gestures
Teach the child to pet his dog, feed him, to go out, to play with him in the brush, to respect his sleep and moments of his meals are some keys that will help create a link between them.
Teach his dog to walk on a leash, to bring an object, not to jump on the child, not to lick or chew the face ... also allows the dog to understand what is its place in relation to the child .
Parents are, again, responsible for the choice they will make and the harmony that reigns in the home with children and dog.
