Hugs and Kisses

As much as we all cherish these actions, they are not always the safest things to do. Statistics and studies tell us this. It is important I think to teach our dogs to tolerate these actions but only in the sense that our dogs are more readily able to accept these actions and not react adversely should someone else also try them with our dogs. Two friends,Teresa Lewin and Joan Orr have ,I think, the best site on the web related to child safety when it comes to dogs. They have studied this to the nth degree, and numerous research and articles confirm it.
I think it is important especially with the excitement and all that of the Christmas season upon us that we teach this to our children and any children that come into contact with our dogs. Here is a very imporant message ,and Doggone Safe's most important message to children and parents. Please read , And here is another article (actually linked to in first article)
