Sharon San Jose, California 7/27/2013 2:22:28 AM I forgot to say when I made a comment that they are very jealous dogs, and want all the attention. I am sure some of you have notice this with this breed! I think if I had very young children this would not be the type of dog I would pick for the family. Now, with a child above 12yrs and up.....great dog! Would protect the kids to the death....If you already have an Australian Cattle Dog....yes, they can be trained not to nip! You just can't let them get to excited when playing, and so forth. Love this breed, and they will protect you no matter what if you are in need! I notice with my dog she never was really keen on meeting people on the the outside of the house. When someone would come in, and she knew them she was just so happy to see them! Good luck with the baby, and your dog! Don't give up on your dog....that dog will become that baby's protector and good friend growing up! Just watch him while training him. He will get it, and make sure he gets attention too!
