Hey Tilden, you're right about watching the toddlers around pets. They don't realize how their actions can frighten or harm a dog or cat. And Bill and Jen did hire a dog trainer some time ago to come and work with their dogs and helpthem get comfortable with toddlers. I recall one episode about it last season. I guess you really have to continue to work on it and still, you may have a dog that isn't natured to accept kids.
