Canines and Children
What is the best sort of dog to get to be around small children? This can be a complicated question with many different factors to consider. As always, ask your Montgomery vet for more information when selecting a dog that will be around a small child.
More important than size, the personality of the dog is of paramount importance. A huge but calm and considerate dog will do far better with a small child than a tiny dog who might be more aggressive. This is the most important thing to consider when looking for such a dog. For more, ask your Montgomery vet.
Size is still an important consideration. Large dogs have typically shorter life spans. This means that if you want your child to grow up with the dog, you might want to pick a smaller one. But as previously mentioned, only if said dog has the right disposition. For more about the size of your potential pet, ask your Montgomery vet.
All of these factors will help you make the best decision possible for your family. Dogs are such a blessing. For more, ask your Montgomery vet.
