Honestly, I am a single mom of a 3 year old child and I love Maggie but sometimes she just doesn't realize how big she is and goes plowing by my son knocks him over. Plus she is very dominant. I still work with her daily doing power training like sit and wait for permission before she eats because she tries to boss me when she can. Maggie is a good loyal dog very protective and obedient.
