- Don't bother your pet at mealtimes or during his afternoon nap.
- Play gently. Rowdy play can confuse and over stimulate your dog.
- Don't allow a young child walk around holding a puppy. A puppy can easily squirm out of a child's hands and hurt himself or the child.
- Supervise your children when they play with the dog for the first few weeks. And don't let children out of your sight when there's a dog around. Animals and children can be harsh on each other in the absence of adult supervision.
