The trust between the kids, pups, and you as the guardian will only be better in this calm-like manner.

Because of the time spent together, kids will really get to know their pets. By knowing their dog’s favorite amusements and what keeps them happy will show they know what their pup truly needs. On the other hand, kids will also know what their dogs can’t stand. Essentially, stay informed regarding what your dog can’t stand and listen to what your kids have to say about this. Offensive things could vary depending on the dog (e.g. certain noise, head taps, certain citrus aromas, etc). Kids are easily in tuned of what their dog likes and hates.
