Small 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.

Some Small Sized Dog Breeds suitable for families with toddlers.


Cairn Terrier
The cairn is typical terrier; plucky, spirited, inquisitive, hardy, clever, stubborn and scrappy. It is responsive to its owner's wishes with a desire to please. It enjoys playing with children and is tough enough to withstand some rough friendly play
