Childproofing Your Dog

This is essential reading for anyone combining or intending to combine children and dogs. Children and dogs love being together, but they need some help with learning how to get along with each other. Dogs need to be able to get used to children, and children need to learn what dogs like and don't like. This book deals with both sides of the equation, with a helpful chapter on 'Dogproofing your child'. There is also a discussion of which dog breeds are suitable for families with children. Not everyone will agree with Kilcommons' recommendations, and it's worth comparing his views with the recommendations in 'Choosing a Dog for Dummies', reviewed in our dogs general selection of books.
