Dog belongs in back seat, for Everyones Safety

Dog Training Myths

Most dogs are good with kids, but there are exceptions. If you start out with a puppie, the chances of it growing with the children and being good with other kids is greater. Some dogs are not so great with kids, but it depends on how they were trained and what kind of loving ar not so loving household they live in. Take your time when approaching any dog with your kids, but don’t be afraid or the outcome may not be so nice. Kids should be shown not to be afraid of dogs from a young age to avoid this.

Senior Lookout: Remember, not all dogs and kids are a good mix

“Contrary to popular myth, dogs don’t need to be punished or dominated to be trained, and such methods can actually increase the likelihood of a bite. Studies show that aggressive owners have more aggressive dogs. If you need help with your dog, …”

Never ride with your dog loose in the car. In the event of an accident the dog could become a projectile and even get ejected from the car. Find the proper size crate or dog carrier for your dog and if possible strap the carrier in with the seatbelts.

“A number of companies make car restraints for dogs. They hook onto your existing seat belts.”

“Thanks. — Yvonne Tom: Well, first, we’d like to congratulate the dog on having done such an excellent job of training your son. Most people would start by modifying the dog’s behavior rather than modifying the electronics of their car.”
