Re: Resource for Expectant Families with Dogs
Thank you! I also think this site is great; I have just been reading through the blog. There is some helpful info and interesting reading for those of us with toddlers and Vizslas.
One thing I would like to see (maybe it is on this website somewhere) is how to work with and teach toddlers to respect dogs' boundaries. Not so much dog training, but more "baby training". So far that is the part I am having trouble with... I try to tell her, for example "No, we don't pull doggies' ears", or "Gus is sleeping; we leave sleeping doggies alone", but at 16 months, she doesn't quite get it , and I am not sure the best way to get the message across at this age.
