|How about NO.|
Short answer, "Nope!".
Recently I saw a post on a dog forum that annoyed me. It went something along the lines of "If your dog doesn't like children you should never take him out or let her off leash." Yeah, because staying at home will get them used to stuff! Big SIGH. It was interesting because the whole conversation of the thread was revolving around dog parks. Most dog parks are not safe places for dogs let alone little kids but that's a post for another time.
