I just came across this helpful link on children and dogs and making sure both are safe when mixed together. Really good and it includes an interactive story for kids aged 3-6.

Thanks karlin I have two children one 14 and one 5 rian is 5 and loves finn but I have to keep a close eye on him still.:)

It was rian birthday on sunday and our two yr old nephew was over now thats not a good mix I discovered, even after showing david how to be gentle and pet finn he still thought it was fun to pull him :( in the end finn was safer in his crate until we left to go to playzone were we were having the party. I didnt think it was worth the risk of leaving finn free.

Great link!! Have bookmarked it so I can pass it on to new owners who have small children, you can never be too careful with young puppies and young children, so far I have been lucky with my own children, but they are very closely supervised especially when the pups are very small, and are NEVER allowed to handle the pups until they are at least 6 weeks old.
