Remember the key to child pet safety is really SUPERVISION. As a mother myself, I know that is not always possible, so here are some helpful tips for when you just can’t do it all.
- When supervision is not possible, put the dog in his crate with a stuffed kong. Do not feel guilty, they will enjoy a break as well.
- Use baby gates to give the dog their own area, yet still allow them to see the family. This is great idea for dogs who have separation anxiety.
- Make sure your dogs have a “kid-free zone” this may be their bed, their crate, or some other area of the house that they know is just for them. This allows them a place to escape if they have had enough.
- Teach your kids how we tell dogs we love them, by blowing kisses, not by giving hugs.
