#27 Not Educating Family Members On Do’s And Don’ts
When a new pet comes into the house, people get so mesmerized by it that they often forget that others may need instructions about how to handle a pet.
This point is particularly important for dog owners with children. Take time to teach kids what kind of food and other items are off-limits for the dog and what allergens may cause the mutt’s allergies to flare up. Failure to disseminate such information can be downright dangerous for the dog.
Boundaries should also be set for the dog and the kids to avoid future biting mishaps.
