Every dog is different and need to be taught to be respectful to children. Children also have to be taught to be respectful to dogs. It's a two-way street.

I had a Briquette Griffon Vendeen also and she was the best. If you hear of any, let me know. I tried to locate them in France a few years ago with no luck. JH john50@bresnan.net
