|Every dog breed can be either good or bad around children. It depends on the individual dog, and the owner and the training. My A.K.K. is very mistrustful of children, especially younger ones. She just doesn't have a child around her enough to get used to the idea and the noise.
I have had a dozen or so dogs throughout my life, and usually I find it is the children that aren't good around dogs. Too many people don't teach their kids about properly respecting a dog and how to safely approach and interact with them. I can't even count the number of adults that try to pet my dog without asking, or with aggressive body language.
The only reason I wouldn't recommend a Klee Kai around children is that they are fairly small dogs and are easily hurt by careless handling. These are not rough and tumble dogs.
