Well eventually the dog will bite him and then he'll learn to leave her alone.

OR...you could teach him to be NICE to the dog instead of torturing the poor animal and waiting for a serious incident to occur. Don't leave them alone together EVER. The MOMENT he acts like he's going to hurt her PUT HIM IN A TIME OUT or distract him or SOMETHING but don't just let it happen. Sit down with him, hold his hand, and tell him "Nice pets!" while you guide his hand and stroke her fur. Explain to him that dogs don't like it when you hurt them and they will bite with their very sharp teeth and really hurt him.

You do realize you're playing with fire and are about to get burned, right?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
