What Presenters Say About The "Be A Tree Program"
"Doggone Safe is an excellent dog bite prevention program because it teaches children and their parents to read dog body language. This skill is on the front line of prevention. When you can understand what the dog is saying, you can better manage the environment to prevent any unfortunate situations. Also, teaching children to respect another living being is so very important. Respect for a dog will create a safe environment. Doggone Safe, using pictures with easy to understand explanations and interactive role playing help children and parents understand how to respect and respond to a dog. Their support and partnership with other areas of dog bite safety such as Dogs and Storks, and on line seminars for adults who are in fields of work where they encounter dogs makes this a very well rounded program."Kathy Wolff - Mosaic Dog Training.
