    Default Cute photo poses that you should never ask of your dog. Training children respect.

    The Kids are Alright | The Science Dog

    Hi all

    This came up on my FB feed...

    It's a collection of photos that show a dog and child at risk while the parent thinks "so cute".

    Pretty sure there's a photo out there of my and my brother sitting on our first family dog too - a lab x bull terrier.

    I will have to go find it to see if he was showing stress signals like these other dogs.
    White eye roll
    ears flat and back
    grimace / lips pulled back
    head turned away (from child and neglectful camera operator)
    panting
    tense stiff body

    And never mind the poor dog that is completely squashed.

    I hear ya Hya ..... god knows i'd never want to see any kid ,especially my 2 bitten.

    But lets no forget that some dogs out there love a bit of rough and tumble from their furless brothers and sisters. But i know what you mean... some parents cant read their kids or their dogs.

    My daughter a few years back with my Ridgy X "Scooby". R.I.P He loved every second he could spend with the kids. (i never allowed them to 'ride' him though.)

    what i find shocking about the study in this link hyacynth, is that children tested under 10yrs, exhibit more caution with strange dogs, whereas parents demo unsafe risky behaviour toward strange dogs. EVEN AFTER ATTENDING COURSE~! And that the parents 5yr old children, learnt more from the course than the parents did.

    My kids grew up being kind to animals. But it didnt stop them shoving the dog in the pram and taking it for a walk wrapped in shawl looking like the wolf in little red riding hood.

    Or colouring the white patches in with felt tips
    Dogs life eh?

    Or toddlers and dog tag teaming who could eat shit first

    I second that Bernie.

    My brother spent a lot of time making sure his SBT was great with small children - so that when he had kids they were safe. But a little too disrespectful. So when I got my puppy, a herding nipping dog... we had to deal with running squealing children who knew perfectly well that wasn't how you're supposed to behave around dogs...

    Fortunately Frosty doesn't like high pitched shrieking - unless she's the one doing it... so she would run away from them.
