The owner of the nursery my girls go to has a dog that she brings in every now and then and lets it run around freely in the nursery. Am I being unreasonable in being uncomfortable about this? Does anyone have any pointers about where there might be something about legislation that this kind of thing or it's not acceptable according to Ofsted? Any tips appreciated - thanks.
Like others have said a controlled show n tell fantastic. If its lose it doesnt take much for a kid to freak it out and it to snap/defend itself. Disaster waiting to happen if you ask me. But at dd nursery you can't bring dogs into the grounds. Car park included.
No way-the news today is just down the road from me and that was on a controlled environment. The community is distraught, it was meant. To be a last day of school treat & gone horribly wrong-the dog was a loving well looked after dog, great with kids etc & has now been put down.
Dogs should only ever be allowed around children when parent/guardian is there and oks each time IMO. They are unpredictable and excitable, as are young children. Not a good combination.
