POLL: Would you let your child share a bed with your dog?

We’ve all seen videos of dogs lovingly cuddling up with babies on the internet. Puppies and children can be a great combination in the right environment.

But according to experts, ‘Excitable young kids can also be overwhelming to dogs. Temper tantrums, squeals of joy and jumping around can be frightening to puppies and dogs.’

Figures also show that most children who are bitten by dogs don’t actually know the dog. Would you let your child snuggle up at night with your pooch? Or do you think dogs and children need to be supervised at all times? Is it careless to leave dogs and kids together alone?

We'd love to hear your thoughts.
