The Bull Dog is very sturdy and can easily manage kids who are new to dogs. Also, please do not confuse tis one with The Bull Terrier or The Pit Bull. All three of them are very different. These dogs are very friendly and loyal towards adults and children alike. The good thing about this guy is that if you already have a dog, or are planning to bring in a new one, it will not take a lot of time to warm up to him. They are very loving towards humans and other dogs.
