Publisher Comments:

Maintaining a safe and happy household that includes both puppies and children can be a challenging task. What is the best way to teach a child to respect the family pet? What rules should be established to help avoid conflict? What are realistic expectation for both the puppy and the child? Sharing insight gleaned from over 20 years of combined experience in the field of dog training, the authors provide a roadmap for navigating the sometimes complicated path to a loving and respectful relationship between puppies and children. Real-life examples of interactions between children and dogs illustrate common problems and offer appropriate solutions, while instructional photos give examples of both "right" and "wrong" behavior. Learn how to meld the playful and protective nature of a puppy with the curiosity and compulsiveness of a child to create a positive atmosphere for the puppy, the child, and the rest of the household.
