How do you teach your child to handle stray dogs?
Mini came into the house a little whole ago from a walk with her friend. She told me as they were walking a strange dog approached them. It didn't growl or bark, just stared at them with its ears perked up. While she knew it was probably friendly I have taught my kids not to approach dogs they don't know.
How do you and your kids handle stray dogs? Does it make a difference if they seem aggressive vs not aggressive?
That being said, we did have a stray that followed us around a few months ago. If she had followed us home, I would have let her in the garage, got her food and water and called somebody. Despite my best efforts, the kids petted her, but she was friendly so I wasn't too worried.
