Cute at first sight only: which dog breeds families with children should not choose

From a giant Alabai to a tiny Chihuahua, very different breeds can bring an unpleasant surprise

When a family has a child and there is a desire to get a dog (at the child's request or not), another very important question is added to the choice of the breed: whether such a dog will be safe for the baby.

Dog experts have named several breeds that are best avoided when there are kids in the house. OBOZREVATEL tells you why.

Akita Inu and Shiba Inu

Cute at first sight only: which dog breeds families with children should not choose

These two Japanese twin breeds, one larger and one smaller, look very cute because of their seemingly smiling faces. In fact, they are quite distrustful creatures, capable of being aggressive towards people they consider suspicious. And what could be more suspicious than a kid who is getting close to your tail from behind or friends who come to visit a teenager?

Chihuahua and other dwarf breeds

Here the situation is reversed. A small dog can easily be harmed by a child playing with it. Given that even tiny dogs are still dogs and aggression is not alien to them, a very unpleasant situation can occur.

Dalmatian

Children adore these spotted beauties because they have been the subject of many cartoons and movies. And Dalmatians do look very attractive. Problems begin when such a dog needs to be socialized. It takes a lot of effort to turn a Dalmatian into an obedient pet. During this time, the dog and the child may have more than one conflict with consequences.

Alabai

With proper training, these giants turn into extremely gentle creatures. The problem is that this upbringing is comparable to raising a child in terms of time and effort. If you don't pay enough attention to the Alabai, it can start to dominate and show aggression. Then it will be difficult for all family members.

Pekingese

Jealousy makes Pekingese a bad choice for families with children. They become very attached to their owners and may start competing with the baby for their attention. This breed also does not like excessive attention, while children are interested in everything: this is also a point where a conflict with the animal can arise.
