With children, a bear hug stranglehold is not out of the question. To condition your dog to their often unpredictable expressions of love and sometimes anger, practice hugging, squeezing, prodding, and poking her, treating her and praising her all the while.


The purpose of handling your dog in preparation for interacting with children is to get her to accept their unpredictability as normal. When the final introductions to the real kids are made, have plenty of treats, toys, and spreadable goodies on hand to further this pleasurable association.
