Dogs are often considered to be man's best friends, and this is especially true for children. However, it is essential to secure the dog-child relationship in order to avoid accidents and ensure the well-being of all.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 50% of dog bite victims are children. Children between 5 and 9 years of age are the most affected, with a risk twice as high as adults. It is therefore essential to teach your child to understand and respect the well-being of the dog and to reinforce the positive behaviors of Médor with the little ones in order to avoid a drama...

On the children's side

Accidents between dogs and children are often the result of a lack of understanding of the animal's warning signals and limitations. It is therefore essential to teach children how to behave in the presence of a dog, how to interpret signals of stress or discomfort, and how to respond appropriately. Learn more about calming signals.  Teach them to give space to the dog when he shows these signals and to avoid surprising or disturbing him when he is sleeping, eating, or playing with a toy.

Dogs communicate primarily through their body language. When a dog feels threatened or uncomfortable, it may respond with defensive behavior, such as growling or biting. It is important to recognize that these reactions are not a sign of a mean dog, but rather of a dog trying to communicate discomfort. Accidents are often the result of inappropriate interaction or lack of supervision. Learn more...

Be sure to supervise all interactions between your dog and children, especially when the child is young or the dog is new to the family. Establish clear boundaries for both parties, teaching children to respect dog space and encouraging the dog to be patient and tolerant of children.

Explain to your children that they should treat dogs with respect and kindness, avoiding brutal behavior, tugging or sudden gestures. Show them how to approach a dog gently, by asking permission from the owner first and letting the dog sniff them before touching them.

On the dog's side

Socialize your dog from an early age, exposing him to a variety of situations, people, and children. Encourage positive interactions. A dog that is well socialized and educated will be more comfortable around children and less likely to react inappropriately.

Provide a safe space in your home where your dog can retreat if they are feeling stressed or in need of calm. A space where children cannot go see the dog.

The key to a harmonious relationship between dogs and children is education, communication, and mutual respect. By using positive education and teaching children how to interact with dogs appropriately, it is possible to reduce the risk of accidents and create a safe and happy environment for all members of the family.

Your dog does not have to eat after you!

The alpha male theory is a widely held belief that suggests that a dominant hierarchy must be established between owner and dog, and that the owner must eat before his dog to assert his leadership position. However, recent research has questioned this theory and has shown that establishing a relationship based on trust and cooperation is more beneficial for dogs and their owners. It is therefore no longer appropriate to have your dog eat after yourself. We explain to you why!
