Deciding to bring a dog into your home is one decision that should not be taken lightly and never is it truer than when you have kids.
Bringing a pet into your life will require dedication and training for both you and your children. While some dogs are better suited for life with families, all dogs need to be trained and given limits, plus a whole lot of love. Any dog can become aggressive, big or small, so it is vital that young children are never left alone with them even for a second. It is also important that children are taught how to treat their pets.
One of the first things people should consider when looking for a pet pooch is if they want a big or a small pup. Large dogs are not for everyone. They naturally require more exercise on the whole, not to mention ample space and food. But rest assured because many of these gentle giants make fabulous additions to family life.
