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 and Dogs
- 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.
