Hello! So I desperately want a dog for me and my daughter. The problem is I recently brought my daughter around my friend and her 2 pugs. At first she was frightened, but she would later swing at the dogs and try to hit them. I am wondering if there is a dog out there that would be a good match for her or do I just need to wait until she is a little older when she knows that this is not okay. What do you guys think?View Thread
Thank you soooo much!!! She is 2 and I've noticed that she is starting to understand a lot more nowadays. I may wait until she is at least 3. Thanks so much for the advice. I didn't think about the advantages of getting an older dog vs a puppy.View Thread
It's just a phase. It took a while for my 2 year old daughter to say I Love You. For awhile I was thinking the same way as you because she started saying I Love You to other people, just not me. It's an even more special feeling when she finally says it to you though.View Thread
