In this episode I’m chatting with Debby about her work with KAD to help families with dogs having the support they need to make sure kids and dogs can understand each other and have all the right introduction and management. In this episode we talk about how to get ready for a new dog in a family with children, if is better to pick a rescue or a breeder puppy, what breeds are the most likely to be compatible to a life with children and of course what are the most common problems with Border Collies and Children that both me and Debby have come across as dog trainers.
