Children stress some dogs out.


Being around young children can be stressful for dogs.

Kids have high-pitched voices, move quickly, and are unpredictable. They chase, fall on, dress, hug, corner, and pick up dogs.

Carefully monitor any interaction your dog has with your children and their friends.

Once a dog has had enough, even good dogs can bite! Help your dog get away to a safe place as soon as you see any signs of stress.

Don’t let children crowd your dog – one at a time and only if your dog shows interest in them.
