All children should be supervised when a dog is present. Wheatens do well with considerate, well-behaved children. Because Wheatens are jumpers and their exuberance may overwhelm small children and because they require much time and attention

The affectionate Wheaten Terrier temperament means he is loving with kids as well as adults, and they make for the perfect play partner for your child.

Just remember that no matter how well you know your dog, it is never a good idea to leave children under 6 years old alone with any breed – even the kind-hearted Wheaten.
