Pets and children can be wonderful together, as long as they’re all having fun. The key is to understand what is fun for your dog and, more importantly, what is not. Whether you have toddlers or teens, we urge you to teach the young people in your household a few simple rules about how to play with their dog to keep everyone safe.
