Kids & Dogs: Safety First! 2012
Fresh Air Dogs will be participating in the Piscataquis Regional YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day on Saturday, April 28th from 1-4 pm in Dover-Foxcroft. We will be highlighting our “Pat a Pet Therapy Dog” program and promoting “Kids & Dogs: Safety First!” We will teach kids how to greet a dog, how to respect a dog’s space (by learning to hear its nonverbal communication), and how to avoid a stray dog, and what to do when they see a group of loose dogs.

In the meantime, click here for a great little video, “Become a Dog Listener!” to watch with your kids and help them learn how to be safe around dogs (published by AKC Canine Partners and the American Kennel Club).
