They shed A LOT. Some people call them german shedders! They are also little alligators as puppies and do a lot of nipping which can be very hard for small children (and parents) to handle. They do need a lot of attention, exercise and training.

Honestly, I would either wait until your kids are a little older or look for a calm dog who is out of the puppy stage.
