My cousins kids are terrified of my dog. I have a 40 lb. (not even) American Eskimo. He 9 years old and is as sweet as can be. So anyways, my cousins wife is terrified of dogs of all sizes and breeds, she was but as a kid and I can understand her cautiousness. Well every time they come over she asks for me to put my dog outside, because her kid (5 and 6) are scared of him? He doesn't jump, or growl..he barks when anyone enters just like any other dog. I agree with teaching your kids that you have to be careful around animals, but I don't think it's right not to let them at least give animals a chance. They aren't allergic , they are just scared because of their mom. Yesterday when they were over, she asked as usually if I would put the dog out for the time they were over (dinner and hanging out) and I kindly said "he just came in, I'm gonna let him chill with us." She said "we'll the kids are scared by him" and I told her "he doesn't bother them, or anyone for that matter..this is his house too and hes gonna hang out inside."
We had dinner and relaxed. The kids were fine..and what do you know?! My dog didn't bite anyone lol. Do you think it was wrong of me not to do as she asked?? I personally love dogs a m dog is like a child to me. He's a kind little fluff ball and after raising him for 9 years I trust him. My 7 month old loves him and my dog is very protective over him..I don't plan I keeping him away from animals and want to teach him animals can be like our best friends.
Are your children dog lovers? Are you weary about having your kids around animals??
