Sized Dogs and Toddlers
As babies move into the toddler stage
they become more mobile, physical and curious which will affect
their behaviour towards dogs.
Toddlers are often excitable and like to play and touch new things
which can mean a tendency to pull tails and ears, ruffle coats
and even poke eyes. Toddlers can try to play with the dogs toys
and possessions. With some breeds this behaviour may be tolerated
but some dogs can be possessive about their possessions and space.
