Both kids and Dogs need training for their safety

Kids love dogs and dogs usually love children. If the two can interact safely and happily, it's a beautiful thing to see. Dogs can be wonderful friends and protectors, while the kids a lot about how gentle, loving and responsible dog owners learn. To reach this level and that these benefits but you need both animals and teach children how to safely handle.
Here are a few tips to make this happen.
Tip # 1: socialize the dog
A well socialized dog is less nervous and excited children around. You should start taking your dog or puppy to places where children will be present so they can get used to the sound, rapid movements, and increased arousal. It is much for a dog and all he can to excite or too nervous. If he is accustomed to these things, he will be more likely to be pet and worshiped by adoring children to calm down.
Tip # 2: Teach your children
Children, as mentioned above, sometimes they love dogs and love them so much that they act without thinking. A hand reaches for a temporary dog could easily touch his head bitten by an unfriendly or poorly socialized dog. Children, because of this, the dog learned to always ask the owner before pat the animal. Who gives the owner a chance that they can prepare the dog's attention and to refuse if he or she knows the dog is not a big fan of children. Plus, it means that your little one does not want to rush to the dogs and put himself in a situation where a frightened dog may attack.
Tip # 3: Teach your dog good manners
Just as children must learn to ask before petting a strange dog, dogs should be taught good manners in public. If somebody approaches him, the proper way to handle the attention for him to sit or lie down. This keeps the dog in a more controllable situation for you and makes him very well behaved. Plus, if you take the time to sit the dog, the kids have time to calm the situation may be easier to administer. You should also teach your dog, especially larger ones, do not jump on people as a greeting. This can be sweet, but it is also very dangerous for children who are easily beaten by the weight of the dog.
Tip # 4: Help children learn not to hurt animals
Sometimes children do not understand the proper way to animals, including dog treat. Kids can grab their tails and try to climb them without thinking about the inconvenience this may cause the dog. Small dogs can be injured, placed in toy boxes or more. For the dog, there are negative experiences that they hate about the child. As a parent, you must stop your child from participating in these activities at the earliest sign of them. Teach your children from day one how to properly handle the dogs. Also a good role model. If your dog to punish him or her, you are sending a very dangerous signal to your child.
The bottom line is that both dogs and children need a little training in this area. They should be socialized, so they can get along with each and must learn the right ways to react to each other. With a little help, they have an excellent relationship that is safe and loving.
