Kids and Dogs

Kids and Dogs

Each July we have two that focus on proper interactions between kids and dogs. This is a common theme at Misty Pines and is brought up at our Puppy Orientations as well. If children are taught how to correctly and safely interact with dogs they will grow up to become adults who know how to safely and correctly interact with dogs which will, over time, improve the relationship between humans canines.

Below is an info-graphic illustrating the proper way to interact with dogs and below that graphic are links to other articles detailing how NOT to interact with dogs. Be sure to print these out, show them to your children and practice these habits on a daily basis. Putting them on the fridge might not be a bad idea either!
