Part Two – How to Keep Children Safe Around Dogs

Keeping children safe around dogs takes an amount of knowledge, some training and many sound judgment. There are simple techniques you could teach your child should they be threatened by a dog. Children must be also taught the best way to behave around your dog that gives the dog space and doesn’t threaten its territory.

Children should be taught the best way to behave near your pet dog. The following are not allowed:

Hugging – wrapping your arms around your dog’s neck is regarded as a threatening behaviour. If your pet features a dominant assertive personality it does not tolerate such a rude behaviour and can lash out.

Kissing – placing your face so near a puppy’s muzzle may lead to the dog thinking you are going to attack it. This may bring about it biting your face.

Eye contact – never allow that you walk up to your pet dog and appearance it directly within the eye. Again, this is considered to be a threatening behaviour and may even bring about another panic attack.

Tail pulling, ear tweaking, fur grabbing – again, based on age a child, this stuff may not be tolerated with a dog.

If you allow your kids to behave in this way in your dog and your dog suffers selflessly in silence then I think there is a fantastic dog. However, all dogs have a level as soon as reached they will attack. Also, you are teaching your children that this can be how they need to behave towards all dogs and they are generally guaranteed to act by doing this on the wrong dog at some part and then it will likely be past too far.

In most elements of the planet, once your dog has attacked, laws declare that it needs to be destroyed. As well, a young child has become psychological and physically damaged. This type of damage may last a life-time and may have been avoided if your pet owners and also the parents with the children took better precautions and used wise practice.

Teach your young ones to respect a dog’s food and it is bed. Never allow a kid to give a dog if you’re not there. Always supervise your son or daughter once your dog is eating. To be safe, feed your dog alone away from the rest in the family so that it can eat its meal in peace and never feel that anyone requires it away.

Encourage your youngster to pat your canine down the length of its back. Never allow a kid to pat your dog’s head as this is recognized as rude behaviour in the dog world. Adults should avoid this behaviour too. Also do not let the kid to rub your pet dog’s stomach given it brings the little one’s face too close to the dog’s mouth. Putting a reasonable distance between all those sharp teeth and your kids’s face may give the little one additional time to advance away if your new puppy does lash out.

If the thing is your dog lick its mouth; straight up and down, then remove your dog or the little one immediately. This is a very subtle sign that your new puppy is stressed plus it may attack. I have seen dogs attack after accomplishing this and there may be no growling, baring of teeth – nothing – simply a quick lick of the front of the mouth then snap!

If a youngster finds it is alone and your dog will be aggressive, teach him or her to stand still, to not produce a noise, to hold his / her arms by their side and to consider the ground. By not initiating any form of exposure to your dog, a child will not be seen as an threat to the dog. The dog will read this behaviour as non-threatening and will leave the kid alone. When your dog has gone, a child should move away slowly and tell an adult what has happened.

Children should mature around dogs as well as other pets. It is a great way to construct their character since they discover how to show patience, tolerant and kinder along with other people and animals. Most dogs love being around children too. Both children and dogs want to chase balls, play games and, let’s be honest, who aside from children hold the energy or the time for you to run throughout the day and have fun with your pet dog?
