The dog is one of the most popular domestic animals in the Unites States. That's not surprising, because having a dog has many nice sides: dogs are nice comrades who can join many places, they can learn a lot so that they can adapt to a variety of situations, they like to be with people, they love to walk or sport with their owner and we can communicate with them, which creates a connection between the dog and the owner. A dog is therefore a pet that you can do a lot of, especially if you are thinking about buying a dog. If you have kids, we recommend you buy only the best dogs for your children. Due to the right choice for a particular dog and a good purchase address, you can find many problems. This manual helps you to do this.

Dogs can get along well with children, but it can also go wrong. All too often it happens that children are bitten. Usually, children and dogs do not understand each other well.

If you have a dog yourself, it's important that you teach your child how to handle dogs. But for children who do not have a dog at home, it is necessary to know what they are and what they can not do with a dog. Dogs are everywhere.

The Golden Rules

A good base for being safe with dogs is the Ten Golden Rules. Teach your child to keep up with it. This can prevent dangerous situations.

Do not hug the dog at first.

The dog can feel trapped and want to defend himself. Cuddle a dog by calming him quietly, for example on his chest or side of his shoulder.

First ask for a dog trait. Not all dogs are looking nice. The correct order when hunting a dog is:

  • Ask first to father or mother.
  • Then ask the dog's boss.
  • If the child is allowed to both swallow, the child may slowly stretch a hand and see if the dog is in charge of the child. If no, he does not feel like it and the child must leave the dog alone.

Do not run on a dog or run away for a dog.

In the first case, the dog may feel threatened. In the second case he can pursue the pursuit, often as a game, but the child may be afraid of it. Walk calmly near dogs, and call the dog instead of walking down on him.

Do not steal the dog.

Stargazing can be a challenge or threat to a dog. Look more closely past him or his tail to watch a dog.

Do not lie under the dog, and of course not on the dog.

If the child lies under the dog, the dog can feel the boss, and in addition, the child's face is very close to his teeth. If the child is lying on the dog, this can hurt him and he can defend himself. Stay standing or sitting on a chair while playing.

Leave the dog alone when he is eating or sleeping.

Let the children stay away from the dog's food bin and your dog’s favorite cookies, he can defend them. Even when he is asleep, the child should not disturb the dog: when he wakes up, he can happen.

Do not get into the dog's basket or bench.

That place is from the dog; he has to feel safe and can retreat.

Do not punch the dog, but rather on the chest or neck.

Many dogs do not like the head, they can scare them and they may think that the child wants to play the boss.

Do not allow children to do drag or drop with the dog.

The dog uses his teeth and that can go wrong. In addition, the dog quickly detects that he is stronger than the child, so he can play the boss about the child. Better games are search games and apple games. Please note that the child is not trying to grab a toy from the dog's mouth.

What Should You Pay Attention To?

In addition to the ten golden rules, there are still a number of important things to keep in mind.

Never leave alone

First of all, you should never leave dog and child alone. In the eyes of a dog, children are up to a year or 10-12 a kind of "puppies" who are in his position in rank. However, if you are his boss, he will see the children as "looking at his boss." He will not then correct them for behavior that he does not like. However, if you are away, the dog may want to stop unwanted behavior of your children and can use his teeth. Always stay with it!

Beware of penalties

Do not punish your child for the dog, because you may have a chance that the dog will help you. But do not punish the dog where the child is with, the child can do this afterwards and the dog can respond to the child later on.

Pay attention to your child

Of course, you should take care that your children do not tease or accidentally hurt the dog. That's not fun for the dog, and it's also dangerous for your children if the dog wants to defend itself.

Not on the couch

Teach a dog that he does not have on the couch so he does not reach the children quickly, and there is no disagreement about who is allowed to sit.

Do not pray

Teach the dog also to not beg you when the children have something to eat. That prevents him from eating food from children’s hands.

Do not let your child play on the ground

Prevent your child from lying on the ground where the dog is sitting. This can be confusing to the dog and in addition, the child is head or very close to the dog's teeth. If you have a baby, teach the dog that he can not get on the baby's robe. Give him something else in the room elsewhere.

Do not let your child leave the dog

Children can not leave the dog alone. A child can not be held responsible for the behavior of the dog. The dog can show annoying behavior, and in large dogs, the dog can overcome the child. Also, without hitting it yourself, your dog can fight with another dog. Your child can not intervene and runs the chance to enter the dogs if he tries to save his dog. This is of course dangerous!
