    I think that was the owner who posted that because he came on the facebook page and posted basically the same comment (without the done worse to your animals part) under the video, which I replied to with a helpful link - before the whole post and the comments were removed.

    The dog is yawning and licking its lips but it is wagging its tail too. Bored or happy? :confused: The fact that parents need to teach kids the right way of interacting with pets remains.

    No, neither. Yawning does equal boredom in dogs, it's an appeasement signal and a sign of stress. Tail wagging can mean a vast range of things from appeasement to outright aggression, depending on the position of the tail, how it moves, and how fast.

    The dog is this video is not comfortable.

    Bandit is AMAZING with kids. Why? because I would rather eat him befor eI let a child harass him like that. For both their safety. Briggs and Bandit actually generally leave each other alone and thats fine by me.
