Ask any second grade class children if anyone has ever experienced a dog bite. You will be shocked to see the number of hands that are raised. Then further the question by asking if it was their family dog or a friend’s dog. Most of the hands remain up as the family dog causes most of the reported dog bites. Why is this? We share our homes and include these animals in all we do, day in day out. This allows for wonderful fun times with our dogs but also may challenge tolerance at other times. Often miscommunication between people and their dog companions leads to a bite. Doggone Safe wants children and parents to learn how to communicate with their companions in a safe, respectful and fun way. We want children to be empowered by knowledge so that they can make safer choices with familiar and unfamiliar dogs.
