Would a pit mix with a border collie be OK around young kids? 6 yr and 2 and a half

Oh, couple more things, NEVER leave pet and kids be unattended by adult supervision. Puppy play biting is NOT ok........EVER.

As long as the dog is trained properly, and you go over safety rules with the kids. Like never wake a sleeping dog, only approach with you there, hold out flat had to let the dog sniff before petting, if the dog is old take extra caution because arthritis or other pains can make them temperamental. Never to tug or pull ears or tail, pet gently, keep face away etc. These are SOME precautions for ANY interaction with pets. Teach kids common sense, and never just run up to a dog. Also, look at the dog and if dog very shy, or showing aggression....walk away.
