Tolerance to children

Because of the low level domination a child can establish with respect to his dog be sure to make an adequate choice of selection between the breeds listed in the low and medium levels; as to trying to make a choice of a female exemplar, for they have more tolerance to children due to their less dominant character. Besides that for dogs height enforces rank. We mustn't forget that on occasions these crazy little people can make use of their pets as testing objects or may even torture them in some way. That is why besides teaching our children on how to treat and take care of our pets and before the impossibility to get them to behave well at all times, you will have to choose a breed that will help with the good development of this situation.

Overall it would be convenient to select a breed that also is high in needs of affection and under the dominant characteristic.
