A new puppy can
quickly be overwhelmed by energetic kids, especially when
your puppy has just been separated from his or her mother
and siblings. So it is important to introduce your new puppy
(or even an older but "new to the family" dog) in
a calm and controlled environment so you can watch for any
issues on either side.
Don't allow your kids to immediately launch into rambunctious
playtime with a new dog or puppy. Instead, focus on calm.
Encourage gentle interactions, such as petting.
Tell your children to never tease, hit or even pretend to
hit the puppy. The emotional distress caused by this can have
lifelong affects on a small puppy.
No loud noises
Your children should never yell at the puppy and should also
avoid making loud noises that could startle him or her.
