|Kutch, I think that's more of a problem with parents not supervising their children. Seriously, we got our first kitten when my daughter was 3 months old, pulling, hitting, or generally manhandling the cat was strictly forbidden, as were unsupervised playtimes.
We have had multiple pets since then, cats, dogs, birds, rodents, chinchillas, fish, and she has never vacuumed the gerbils, flushed the fish, or let the birds free in the garden.
Children need pet skills just as dogs need training. She's seven now and she has a primary role in training, grooming, feeding, and is gentle as a lamb.
Chalupa, please put your dog on the ground, dogs need exercise, they need to walk, else you'll have no end of weight problems, behavioural difficulties and health issues as she grows older. By all means carry her to the shops for a bit of fun, but make sure she has at least 20 minutes per day.
