Dogs hate to be teased, just like humans do. Don’t let your children pull on their tail, ride on them, or bark at them. This behavior is very confusing to canines, and can be dangerous for humans if the dog gets confused and attacks them. Dogs need to be treated with respect, even if you think that teasing them is funny. And, for the children, you might want to have them play with their own toys. Your dog will be thankful.
