    Thanks Karlin for all of your advice. I think that a biggest part of the problem is that children also rush at them and then squeal. I guess that is enough to make any self respecting dog bark.
    At least all of these replies make me feel a lot better that the girls are no different to a lot of others here
    Thanks again Julie and the girls

    I run a licensed daycare from my home, and Dudley is very tolerant
    of them. But I have also taught them that he needs his space and
    sometimes he just likes to be by himself.
    I have told the little ones not to mall him as he will let them know when
    he wants to play and this he does.
    At times some of the younger children don't understand (under 2)
    Dudley got a nice new cushion for his crate and is now going into his crate
    for his naps.
    Although our Cavaliers are tolerant of children patting them on the heads, I am not so sure about some of the other breeds out their. I have always
    taught these little ones to always pat a dog under the mouth. Also not
    to pat anybody's dog unless they ask the owner first, as not all doggies
    are the same.

    Thanks Linda. That is good advice and something that all children should be taught. If only there were more sensible parents out there to teach their children these things. I know I have always taught mine not to touch other peoples dogs. I myself will just leave a dog until it appears to be more ready to get to know me.
    Thanks again everyone
    Julie and the girls
