Poodles and children can develop a healthy life long relationship. Poodles are
affectionate and can be very devoted to their young mistresses and masters.
On the other hand some children can be neglectful and harmful to Children this kind of
behavior can turn a trusting poodle into a distrusting and fearful pet.

To make sure the relationship is a happy one for everyone concerned, parents
should take time to teach children the proper way to treat the poodle.
When children are able to understand that the poodle is  not a stuffed toy,
they are more likely to understand how to love and care for the poodle.

There is no reason that children can not take part in caring for the poodle.
Even small children can take part in feeding and watering the poodle.
School age children are capable of taking the poodle for a walk and can
even help with the grooming. Children can learn to bathe and brush the
poodle properly if taught with patience and care. Children should also
be taught that aside from playing and being groomed the poodle also needs
time set aside for them self.


The poodle should not be kept away from the baby or it may not accept the
baby as part of the "pack" Allow the poodle and baby to get to know each other.
The poodle may want to sniff the baby which is fine. The poodle uses its sense of smell to
acquaint itself with all things. The poodle should be taught not to lick
the baby. If you're expecting a baby then you should take the poodle to the
vet 6 weeks prior to the birth and have it examined for parasites especially
tapeworms and just a general checkup.

Once the poodle is allowed to sniff the baby and get to know the baby the
poodle will usually begin to protect the baby. Children who are allowed
to grow up with pets usually gain experiences that will benefit them the rest
of their lives. Also with a dog they will always have a friend.

Should I Buy My Child a Puppy?

Pets can be fantastic means of teaching children responsibility. You need to bear some things
in mind though if you’re to get the right dog for a child, such as his or her age and how he/she
might act towards the animal. How do you know that the new puppy won’t be flushed down the
toilet by the young playful child? Just because the child is small doesn’t mean that you must
buy a small puppy. If your child is going through the stage of boisterous toddler, you might be
better getting a larger dog who can take being bashed about from time to time. If the child is
too ruff, you might be better to put off buying a puppy until he or she has grown a little older
when the child is ready to have some responsibility. On the other hand, you could get a much
older dog. You will find a great deal of dogs that have been put in animal shelter for reasons
other than being aggressive or miss treated. The owner of such a dog might have fallen sick or
have become unable to cope with the dog financially. Many of these dogs are already house
broken, experienced and calm. Before you go out and purchase a dog for your child, it can be
a great idea to take your child to see your friends dogs and perhaps take them out for the day.
You could also take the child to a dog shelter to see the animals there. Doing these things will
help you to decide whether your child is really ready for a dog as a pet and it will allow the
child to see what caring for a pet dog will involve. You can get almost any breed of dog you’d
like from rescues. Not only that, but these rescues have dogs that are up to date with shots.
You’ll be able to find dogs that have also been neutered or spayed. Dogs won’t all be fond of
children. Getting a dog from a rescue can allow you to know that the dog will be friendly
around your child and any pets you may already own. Once you’ve got the perfect pet for your
child, you’ll need to take it to your local vet for a physical check-up to find any problems with
the animal. Whereas certain problems can be resolved right away, others take more time. That
is why rescue dogs are a great choice again since you know they won’t have any serious
disease or joint issues and it is more than likely that your child will get a good shaped animal.
You will have to do a lot of the initial caring for the dog as you show your child how to look
after the animal so make sure you are ready for such a task.  Do a good amount of research on
the breeds of dog before choosing which is the best pet for your child. Doing all of this can
help you to choose the best dog possible when you finally arrive at your decision.
