dogYour may think that the perfect dog for children is a small cute one right? Not necessarily.  Contrary to popular belief, tiny dogs usually do not like to be held and are not cuddley. Dr. Alice Finelly, an Animal Behaviorist at Tufts University says that you need to look for a dog that not only has a solid temperment and is relaxed but is physically sturdy and will be able to withstand interacting with children.  If you still want to choose a small dog, Dr. Finelly says that Pugs, Boston or Norfolk Terriers may be the best choices.  So if you have a small child and are thinking of adopting a dog, start thinking of a larger dog and of course when you’re shopping for dog beds, choose a larger one.
