Child Safety Around Dogs

Have children and considering a dog? These tips may help you prevent your dog from injuring a child:

  • Use caution when bringing a dog into the home of an infant or toddler.
  • Dogs with histories of aggression are inappropriate in households with children.
  • If your child is apprehensive around dogs, hold off owning one.
  • Many families wait until their child is older than 4 years before bringing a dog into the home.
  • Families with children and dogs should be even more aware that making a dog a member of your family is a significant commitment.
  • Children’s natural behaviors–including running, yelling and grabbing–put them at higher risk for dog bites.
  • Do not EVER leave a baby or small child alone with a dog, including the family pet.
  • Do not let a child play with a dog unless supervised by an adult.
  • Children should first ask their parent for permission to pet someone else’s dog, and then ask the owner for permission as well.
  • Shy or nervous dogs can become even more agitated by children.
  • Teach children from a young age to be careful around pets.
  • Children should know to report a dog bite to an adult immediately.

Terrence Williams

“I think very highly of Mr. Morse’s office and would recommend them to anyone. It starts with the great feeling you get when you come to the office for the very first time and it has continued with the excellent customer service they always provided. I don’t even need to ask questions because the attorneys and paralegals are so on top of their jobs. They have always been there for me. I have a warm and friendly feeling anytime I stop in. It feels like home.”
