: Can they be trusted around children?
My dog Yogi loves kids. I take him into schools and the kids will walk him with out a problem. Let free in the classroom he will greet each student and will lay by the smallest or special needs child. You do need to understand that yogi feels that they are his kids and he does not like other adults interfering with his job. When he goes out for recess he is not fond of the playground aids when they correct the kids or line them up to go in. I will not take him to visit kids in the hospital because I think that if a nurse where to give a child a shot and the child showed pain he would stop her. You need to keep in mind that these dogs are advanced dog ownership.
