He was able to because I was around the other side of the yard, cleaning up after said messy dog, and I didn't know my brother had come outside. Since then (this happened some 16ish months ago), Kye (my brother) has learnt not to touch Leo while he is eating. He understands, don't go near Leo while he's eating because he doesn't like it (something I was taught when I was little). The only times he (or myself) would ever get a nip is during play when the dog has accidentally missed the toy we're playing with.Originally Posted by ChoppaChop
Are you asking (re the bold) for my case or the OPs? As for my suggestion, I meant for a temporary measure until the child is older and understands. There's no reason why this dog and child cannot live together if the child understands that the dog does not want to touched.
Can I ask why though, you seem to put more emphasis on a child being bitten over an adult (you may not, it just sounds this way)?
