It's best to expose your puppy to children as much and as soon as possible. If the child is old enough always, always, teach them to respect the dog. To me, it's usually the parents fault a child gets hurt by a dog. Children should always be supervised when with a dog. Toddlers don't understand that pulling, riding, or poking on a dog causes the dog pain. Teach the child to LOVE the puppy, talk to the child a lot. With puppies remember they too are babies and don't understand not to jump, lick and maul over a child. They also should be taught basic commands and supervised. If the puppy is young enough and the child is growing up with the puppy most of the time they kinda work it out between themselves. The puppy gets pulled on, he removes himself or he gets so rough the child gets hurt. Again, supervision because they are both babies.
Right now my pup is six months and my grandson is five years. When they begin to play it's like a herd of elephants and wild monkeys are turned loose in the house! I know that the child will usually end up crying first (because he was taught not to hit the puppy) although I still have to monitor them, but when the puppy hurts him and he cries and is finished playing then Gage is hurt that his playmate is gone. And I scold him and the grandson just as if they were both two children (Gage a little more severely). Both usually get over it and go on.

An important point to remember is to make sure the child keeps their hands down and doesn't start waving them around. We have a "hands down rule" in our house for when my wife's little cousins and any other little kids come over. They have been around our dogs since the older one was three years old and it really helps to keep the dogs calm.

I will be honest with this breed other than training for jumping and nipping my dogs have naturally always been good with kids... This is kind of a Breed trait so anything else I would question... However my kids have beentaught since before they could walk what they could and could not do to the dogs... And again my dogs have grown with my kids and are I side dogs so they are always around the kids too...

Same here.Besides the teaching of jumping and nipping there isn't to much I've had to teach.Mine have been good around my kids.No matter how much riding,pulling,or grabbing they have been fine.
But like others have said you should always show your kids the right way to treat a dog.And ALWAYS (I can't stress that enough) keep both under supervision while around each other!No matter what kind of breed you have.

I don't know what more to add to everyones great advice up above.

Train the children to respect the dog, and ALWAYS keep constant supervision over them.

All have given great advice. I have a 2 year old son who rides them both around the living room it's super cute. We got Dosia when my son was about 1 and I've had Marley for almost 10 years but he's always been around kids. We have never had any problems and neither one of them have ever snapped or growled at any kids. Like people said above the training needs to be done with the kids so they know boundaries. The kids need to know how to respect dogs and not to tease or mistreat them that's usually where the problems come in. I would just set up some supervised visits with family kids now while she's still young and she'll get used to being around them

Another thing you can do with your children that made mine learn real quick not to tease the dogs... For some reason every kid wants to tease the dog with stuffed animals... Guess what if I catch one of my girls teasing with a stuffty then the dog gets the stuffty even if it is one they have had since they were young... It only takes one time (per child of course) for a kid to lose their toy to the dog for teasing and they will not do it again...

I am such a mean mom huh? lol

As everyone has said: as early as possible. I have two granddaughters that live in a home that has a few pits living in the home. My five year old granddaughter grew up with one named Mae. We have pictures of her as a baby less than a year old laying next to Mae and both of them are asleep. The ten month old granddaughter ever since she figured out a way to get around the floor without crawling and then when she could crawl, she was always around one of the dogs crates. My daughter-in-law has video of her sticking her feet in Bumblebee's crate and all B does is lick her feet. If she gets too close to Snoop's crate he will lick any part of her body he can reach. The dogs have never given any of us any cause for concern. My daughter-in-law has always made sure that all her dogs are socialized.

Sorry for rambling on. Just can't help myself.

Both the child and dog need to be taught what is expected and acceptable. keep the pup on lead and monitor at all times.
