Unhappy dogs and new children

my wife and I have two dogs...a dal and a golden ret. We've been married a year and
are hoping to have kids soon. As far as kids go...I know the golden will be no problem.
The dalmatian, however, is a little skittish around kids. Never aggressive...just avoids
them like the plague when she sees or hears them. Once she gets to know a child...she
loves them. Is this normal? How do we prepare our dogs for a house with baby...toddler...
tyke??? Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated so we can start working on this now.
Another question: We are avid runners...the dal can go forever but the golden seems to putter
out after 25 minutes or so...is this normal?
