Oh gosh yes. We are going to have them sign something that says they acknowledge that he is not good with children.
Today was worlds better. He barked a few times at the kids from a distance and growled once I think. We scolded him for doing so and he seems to understand that this is not acceptable behavior. Also, we have been forcing him to be more exposed which seems to be helping his self confidence and making him more calm. Tonight the kids were bouncing around and playing very loud in the same room as him and he seemed to tolerate, not like, the action.
We still don't know what we are going to do. We do think he deserves a little more time. I think I was sheltering him too much and we took the wrong approach in the beginning. We are trying the exact reverse of our methods before.
Thanks again for the comments and support.
If anyone has any suggestions as to what we should do, I am open ears.
