You tube video
What is this child learning? If dogs like you, you can use them as a jungle gym? Why is it we acknowledge a dog is being tested but yet many times do not step in and use the opportunity to "teach" the child how to respect the dog? If this child climbed on people and kicked them would we say the receiver of that behavior was wonderful for putting up with it? Children must learn boundaries and respect for all living creatures...especially those that can not speak. It is our job as a parent to set up our children and animals for loving and respectful relationships. If we do not teach them in our homes with our furry friends. All of the behaviors in this video set up this child for a serious bite if she EVER behaves this way with someone elses dog...not to mention when her dog gets fed up. Please teach respect and gentle touch.
