Norfolk Terriers typically love children. However any dog requires supervision with children, especially when puppies are playing with children under 7 or 8. This is not only for the child’s safety, but the puppy’s since some young children may unintentionally harm a puppy.

 

 

Never get a dog with the intention of teaching a child responsibility. Both children and puppies need an adult caretaker and parents need to accept this before getting a dog. One of the greatest concerns with chidren and dogs is that children tend to leave doors and gates open, and the dog may get out and get lost or hit by a car. Strict rules must be enforced to ensure that gates and doors are always kept closed to protect the dog. Young children should never be allowed to pick up a wiggly pup.

 

 

The rule should be children should sit on the floor and coax the puppy to them. Young children picking up or chasing pups can result in injury.
