7. Establish Ground Rules
Ground rules should be established from early as possible, and this is really important. Don’t let your dog lick plates that your kids leave lying around, or snatch anything from their hands. Teach your dog never to jump up, as this can frighten children and even knock them over if they are a big breed. Practice good hygiene around the home, by keeping dog toys away from kids and vice versa. Be disciplined with these ground rules and don’t let standards slip.
