Holiday Safety Tip #2 - Learn to Recognize the Dog Comfort Signs

If your dog isn’t accustomed to children or strangers, ask everyone to be cautious and to please stay out of your dog’s face. Fluffy or Fido may be meek and mild mannered with you, but may not be with a stranger — especially a child who may be face-level height with him. My dog Bonnie is not comfortable around strangers and really is not fond of children so we make sure the parents of young children stay away from her and we just tell them that “she is nervous and scared of kids” and everyone understands and gives her her space.
