Thatcher is a little over a year and doesn't seem to like children. She does a low growl when one approaches and I have to intervene (saying No!, body blocking, etc). I have tried giving kids treats to give to her (never putting anyone in danger, but hoping she would associate treats with kids), and have had her sit and watch kids play in playgrounds (thinking perhaps it was the noise that she was uncomfortable with and being around it would make her used to it). I don't get it. She is so gentle and otherwise loving, but if a child is under 12, she acts out. Did anyone else have this problem? And how did you get over it?
