The Kids & Dogs Project –
Teaching Children About Dogs
Is your child head over heels in love with dogs?
Are you worried that he or she might get themselves into trouble with their enthusiasm and lack of inhibition about approaching dogs?
Is your child afraid of your dog, a neighbor’s dog or all dogs?
Are you unsure of how to help your child and concerned you may have to give up your family dog?
This seminar is about helping kids and dogs get along by teaching kids about dogs. Why? Children under the age of nine are frequently bitten by dogs – not usually by an unknown dog but by dogs they love and ‘know well’ – the dogs they live with. Bites can usually be prevented with a keener knowledge of how dogs communicate combined with proactive management and advocacy of both dogs and children.
Bring your son(s) and daughter(s) to this interactive dog behavior education seminar designed specifically for children ages 6 to 14. Children and parents will learn about dog behavior, how to read dog body language and how to be safe around dogs. A dog model will be used as many children who attend these sessions are afraid of dogs. On occasion, a live demo puppy may be available! These interactive hour long sessions are held at No Bones About It at 1786 Beacon street Brookline, MA. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No exceptions.
