IMHO, a three year old child and a puppy never mesh well together. Neither know how to properly play w/ the other. They can each have profound and lasting effects on the future of the other, regarding the other. I would just monitor their play-time together until the pup gets older. Teach the pup how to play with you and let it trickle down to how to play w/ any human/adult/child. And, teach your toddler how to play w/ any pet w/ constant supervision.Shelly said:Niketa is doing alot better with her over all biting, but she is still rough. Today Matt (my 3 y/o) was playing with her, like they always do but this time they got a bit rougher and and Niketa bit him on the ear. Any one have any advice on how I can get her to know that inside is nice time and outside is play time?
