6 Dogs Breeds You Must Keep Your Child Away From

Chow Chow: Chow Chows can be aloof and territorial, which may not make them the best choice for families with young children who may not understand or respect a dog's need for space.

Akita: Akitas are known for their strong guarding instincts and may be less tolerant of the unpredictable behaviors of children.

Alaskan Malamute: These dogs have a high energy level and may be too strong and active for some families with young children, potentially leading to unintentional knocking over or rough play.

Dalmatian: Dalmatians can be high-energy and require a lot of exercise and mental stimulation. Without proper outlets for their energy, they might become irritable or overly excitable.

Bullmastiff: While Bullmastiffs can be gentle giants, they are large and strong dogs that require proper training and socialization to interact safely with children.

Rhodesian Ridgeback: These dogs were originally bred for hunting and can have a strong prey drive. Without proper training, they may not always get along well with smaller pets or young children.
