Just curious. We have a 1 1/2 year old minature poodle. He loves kids but hasn't spend much time around them. But is always well behaved with them. He loves to be petted by them and given treats but he doesn't like to be handled by them (as in picked up and held) He doesn't trust them enough for that and he has had some bad tummy issues in his life. Other than that though. My concern is when we have kids. Not so much when our child is a baby (He loves babies) but when the kid becomes a toddler. I'm honestly more concerned that my poodle might get hurt. How early do you start to teach both dog and child how to interact with each other? (My friend wants to set up a playdate with my dogs and hers problem is she won't leave her baby at home or be away from her baby who is 15 months old and I don't want my dogs around the toddler because they aren't used to toddlers...I declined she was offended but I declined) So how good are Minature poodles and kids together? And how to make things work in the future when we have children?
