OhMyDog focuses a lot on the dog-child dynamic. Dogs and kids can be a wonderful combinations, or it can be a disaster waiting to happen.
It turns out that interactions between child and dog are surrounded by myth and hear-say, and it can result in unsafe practices. Well-meaning parents often miss red flags that a dog professional sees a mile off.
Nobody likes to rain on someone’s parade or be seen as alarmist, so it can be hard for us to share our concerns.
And yet there are still far too many dog-child bite incidents that would have been perfectly preventable with a little bit of extra information about dog behaviour.
So, parents: how dog-smart are you? Do you dare take the quiz?
