Half of all kids are bitten by a dog by the time they are 12 years old. A good percentage of these bites come from a dog the child knows. Education is the key to preventing bad interactions between dogs and children.
The Be a Tree program is a dog bite prevention seminar for school-age children. This program focuses on fun and interactive activities to teach children to read dog body language and how to act safely around both their own dog and strange dogs.
The program was designed by Doggone Safe, a 501(c)3 registered non profit organization. Click Here to visit their site.
