Default Introducing Children to Dogs

Charley decided to take Shiva with us when we went to a friend's house a couple of weeks ago. David and Tammy have two teenage boys and a five year old daughter, Madison, who is most precocious.

Madison's never been around a dog at all, let alone a dog like Shiva. She was a little tentative about meeting Shiva, whose head is pretty much even with Madison's. Madison stepped back a bit, but bravely stood still while Shiva kissed her cheek.

Charley looked at Madison and said, "Shiva's friendly and gentle, Madison, you don't need to be afraid of her." Madison's very matter of fact reply was, "Yes, but Charley - she's HUGE."

OMg that is toooooo cute. but, I can give you the advice Renee gave me with Brutus and it has worked great. make them lay down. Brutus wanted to touch my 18 month old grandaugheter's hair.I did teach him to be easy with her and and made him either sit or lay down. It worked great. I might add,,,,,, he is now taller than her, sitting down. But she does love him, and she has now learned to tell him Brusis sit. And he does. It is so cute. And he is trying so hard to be gentle. He is so big though...he would never intentionally hurt her, but could Knock her over. He does love it when she feeds him cookies. Such a suck up. and Roxie also.

LOL that cute! It always amazes me how frank children can be and then there are 'us' who tiptoe around a subject and come out sounding like babbling goons. ahh, out of the mouths of babes I guess

Shiva's two now and is very careful around children and old people. I usually ask her "where are your manners?" and she sits down to meet them . . . but it's not like you can tell Charley anything It's so funny to see the dogs meet children or someone who is frail. They look so grave and move so carefully and slowly so they don't hurt the person. I've wondered if it isn't the guardian in them that makes them that way.
