Default Re: Adopting a puppy with a toddler and almost 8 year old

One thing the dog trainer (world class, trained dh and his K9) told me when we had trouble with a puppy and one of the kids who as about that same age at the time - for the puppy playing with a kid is like getting hyped up on sugar and going to Disney at the same time. The sugar high is just their puppy nature and the kid is Disney land. Keep in mind that they can't control much of their behavior and make sure when they are together playing, that you are there to make sure it doesn't go too far.
