harmony My time is a little off because my hb work changed again, and I had time because my workers showed up today. But do you really believe your dog has more of a problem then a person might? I do not doubt animals are misguided or have problems due to bad breeding, but come on alot of dogs problems are the people that own them. Believe it or not a GS in most cases is a very easy breed, the dog not the people

Whats so hard to believe? My dogs love people and kids, but like anything they can get stressed. I watch for all of these signs. My dogs love kids, but I would never put them in a situation where they felt they were so stressed that they would bite...I would never jeopardize ruining the relationship my family have with my dogs and vice versa.

GatorDog Aiden is scared of children. I can tell that its because of their erratic movements and the fact that they're "tiny humans" and don't look like everyone else. I got him when he was around 5 months and he had no previous socialization with children. I also don't have any small children in my house, so his first encounter with one was around 8 months old.

If I have him anywhere near children, I explain to them not to bother with Aiden. If they're too young to understand, then Aiden is locked up somewhere away from them. He is generally fine with them now, so long as they aren't running up to him and trying to hug him around the neck or something. For the most part, he chooses to keep his distance if possible.

harmony You can kick stones all you want but it depends, and dogs in the most part love kids , even when people don't!

Well even this is more of an individual philosophy and not necessarily a fact about dogs.
