About the Event

Did you know that children are the most at-risk members of our society to suffer a bite from a dog? Research reveals that children ages 5 to 9 years of age are most likely to be bitten. Psychologists have discovered that, while children understand the behavior of an “angry” dog, they do not often recognize the signals of a frightened dog. Happily though, studies also show that children can be taught how to interpret dog behavior and avoid dog bites.

In this fun, interactive presentation children are taught:

  • how to “Be a Tree”
  • how to speak dog
  • how to greet a dog (and when not to)
  • how to know which dog is safe to pet (and which are not)
