Beyond The Dog Tip of the Month

If you have small children and a puppy in your home we recommend that the children, along with adult supervision, hand feed your puppy his meals for sitting. The benefits are twofold: 1) your puppy will begin sitting calmly for attention from children and 2) your puppy will associate your children with pleasant experiences rather than negative ones (e.g., being grabbed or stepped on). If you find that your puppy is biting your childʼs fingers the child can simply drop kibble on the floor once your puppy has sat.
