Puppy Love: Keeping Kids Safe
Tell your child it is never OK to hit, smack, kick or pull on a dog. If a dog is acting in an aggressive manner, avoid eye contact and move away from the dog slowly. Your children should know it's never a good idea to go near a dog that is in the middle of eating. He should wait until the animal is finished with its meal. Many dogs can be extremely possessive of their food. Always supervise your children around animals. Let your children know it's never right to poke animals in the eye or get near their eyes. Children should also be taught the difference between a domestic pet and service dogs.
