Children and Small Dogs

Friday, July 17, 2020

You 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 or cuddled . Dr. Alice Finelly, an Animal Behaviorist at Tufts University says that you need to look for a dog that not only has a solid temperament 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.

Remember, your pets count!
