When choosing a dog for children choose a child friendly dog to create a better situation for both dog and your family! Supervise any interaction between your children and your new puppy. Be especially watchful with young toddlers. One should never leave toddlers alone with any new dog.

Along with supervision, it is wise to teach puppy obedience and rules. Children should also be taught rules to minimize the risk of any dog bites, thereby creating a safe atmosphere at home for all concerned.
