    Training them to put up with bad kids is imperative.

    •  This can be a bit of a personality issue (0+ / 0-)

      or, more properly, a "doganality" issue. The first dog we ever had (named "dog" by my sister) was a mutt. She was instinctively protective and even nasty. (My mother recalls an incident where a furniture delivery guy came to the door and told her that he was NOT coming in unless she put the dog somewhere else. At that point, she tried to reassure him that "dog" was friendly. Then she looked down and saw the nastiest looking mutt, she'd ever seen). Still, dog never did anything mean to me as an infant. She wasn't particularly fond of me, but she would put up with me pulling on her ears to stand up. Of course, that may be an in-group out-group thing, but as far as I remember, she never harmed a child.
