The majority of my clients have children. Children are great for socialization, assisting during training, and overall distractions. This is a wonderful article that discusses the dynamic of bringing home children when fur-babies are already in the home. The transition from a childless home for a dog can be stressful but with time and patience, a respectful and loving relationship can be built. This respect must be from both sides and clearly taught to both kids and dogs alike. Enjoy!
