howdy, Eliza. I dont think anyone was saying that everydog is going to attack a child when left alone. I think we're more so saying that theres always a chance that it could, and why risk it. great point Kelly. My Bit** did not want anyone to bother her besides me, when she was in heat. Now she is a great dog and trained, but in heat (just like real women :lol: :mrgreen: ), she gets cranky and moody. I think why bigger dogs dont like children is because the kids are around their hieght. I think its a dominance thing. What makes it worse are those kids that torment the dog . I have a cousin whos 5, who tormented and plauged my b**** when she was a puppy...did not see her for months , and now whenver he comes around she makes it very clear that she does not like him, he even still taunts her. The parents look at me like its her fault..or that shes not prop trained. i tell em 'NO! correct your CHILD and teach him how to respect dogs'. She LOVES every other kid except him, just a concidence?? i dont think so.
