    Default Help with Dogs and Children

    Sorry if this is in the wrong spot. :/

    My little man(21mths) was bowled over pretty hardcore today by our three dogs, he has a black eye, a scratch and graze (nothing major) but im worried he is going to petrified of them now . He usually mingles with them really well and they usually respect his space, this is the first time he has been knocked over, they were a little bit excitable. Any tips on how to make him not so scared ??

    Thanks heaps

    I think it all comes down to training. My two, though small, have always been taught to be careful around small children. No jumping etc...

    I hope your little boy is okay.

    I hope your son recovers. I was attacked by a rotti when I was... 9... or 10... Nearly lost my eye, took me YEARS to not fear dogs in general, Im still not that flash around that breed though.

    I'm not sure it's a good idea having 3 dogs around a baby. I would just hold him on your lap and make the dogs sit then encourage him to pat them or let him watch you pat them. Eventually he will feel safe around them as long as they aren't all excitable and crazy around him.
    Never ever leave him alone with the pack though, even when he feels safe around them.

    He wasnt alone with them, he was playing near us and my partner let them out of the fence and they were playing then they bowled him over, It was only the pup (well she is a year old) that knocked him over, she is really excitable, the other two are quiet around him, like a said its very unusual for them to knock him over. He is never ever alone with them.

    Are some dogs just super crazy all the time? We have tried training the pup but she has always been very excitable. She jumps up, she snatches food, she barks non stop at times. But she sits, waits for food until we give the command, she shakes, she leads well, but let her off and she goes loopy :/

    Some breeds are more crazy than others, but a year old is still very young. What breed is she?

    She is a wolfhound X She has always been excitable, we have a large yard, and they get attention every day, my other two dogs get very cranky with her a lot, but she continues to pester them when we let her out she just runs around really mad, there is no calming her. And when she does quiet down she just licks, and licks and licks. Its really frustrating

    (i was going to start another thread about this because im not too sure what else to do with her)
