July 11, 2008, Newsletter Issue #3: Children and Puppies - A Match Made in Heaven

Tip of the Week

Children and puppies go together like cookies and milk. They take adorable pictures together and can entertain each other for hours. However, there are a few things you should do to be sure your kids and your puppy have a safe and happy time when they hang out with each other. To be sure your dog and your child do well together, you should:

Always supervise play time. Your child and your puppy are both too young to always behave appropriately with each other. If one or the other of them gets a bit carried away, you'll need to step in before the laughing and barking are replaced with tears or whimpers. Make sure your child knows the rules for interacting with animals. Discuss the fact that the puppy is much smaller and could be easily injured. Talk about how to properly hold a dog and have your child practice with a stuffed toy. Provide the puppy with plenty of chew toys and limit play time to short intervals to lessen the likelihood that it will become overly nippy while it is playing. Puppies become wound up and misbehave when they are overtired, just as children do. Search for child friendly breeds using a site like puppyfind.com.
