If the upcoming holidays involve your dog being around young kids, please supervise! If you can't keep an eye on things, then put your dog somewhere safe. Even the "sweetest dog in the world" will bite if pushed to that point... #DogTips #DogsofSpoutible

Clearly you never met Louis (seen here with his duck friends - he also had guinea pig friends, and would never ever bite a child no matter the provocation. He'd run off first.

Louis seems like the bestest dog! To your point, most dogs would try to get out of the situation, but if trapped, like a kid crawls into the dog's crate and they can't get away, some, especially fearful dogs, will bite. It's the "fight or flight" concept.

Yeah well Louis would go for flight albeit not full speed; but that would be the biggest risk to a small child because when 42kg of golden retriever decides to move there's a fair few adults would be knocked over let alone smaller people.

And I've been run over by a few Golden Retrievers so I know what you're talking about 🙂
