Life Choices: Should I get a dog or a kid?

From the web:
"Life decisions that people have to make are never simple. The importance of the initial decision should always be examined over the long run. Memories made and cherished are sure to be tempered along the way. Consider the following two important choices...1. Should I get a dog...

...or have children one day?"

From me:
Before you do either, get training. Training in how to effectively discipline the dog or the children to either (hopefully) prevent such incidents and/or to effectively manage these incidents without killing anyone. I do Parent Training. It's formal, systematic and customized. Best of all it's effective. It's based in the best evidence-based practices and real life "in the trenches" experience.
