Susan, I'm always amazed how many small children are afraid of dogs. Sometimes it is from a bad experience, but I think the most common reason is just because they haven't been around them. Since I work part-time at a school, I get to take them with me to see kids often, but I always take them contained somehow to keep anyone from getting scared. Even a lot of scared kids will approach us strictly out of curiosity, especially the puppies since they are so small. Now that the puppies have teeth and are mouthing everything, they won't go to the school at all. That bothers a lot of kids who have dogs at home and the puppies don't know better yet.
