Dogs can be excellent companions for children when in the hands of a capable owner who knows how to read them. Anyone who has grown up with a dog knows that the love and compassion that they gave to and received from their canine soulmates is like nothing else in the world.

The compassion that children can learn for other living beings when living with a dog is a double-edged sword – if a child pushes a dog too far, they may push them away or snap at them. When your child spends time with a dog, it's important that the dog remains supervised to ensure that neither creature crosses the other's boundaries.

If you've got any beautiful photos of children with dogs, you can share them with us below and vote for your favorites!

The dog looks like it wants the adult human to stop the little human from messing with its mouth.

Love it. The dog is not on top showing dominance but the baby. Perfect contribution to the rule of humanity ...

Dangerous having the kid wearing a hat with tassel ties and the dog is obviously a fan of rope toys.
