Kids + Dogs program

Dog bite prevention education for children and parents.  Information on understanding dog behaviour, recognise when a dog needs space and how to teach your children to play with and train your dog.

  • 13 000 people are bitten by dogs each year in Australia,

  • The majority of these cases are children under the age of five.  Children often sustain bites to their face, neck and head requiring medical intervention and can cause disfigurement and scarring.

  • Family dogs are usually responsible for these bites.  Common triggers for bites include children climbing on the dog, interrupting it’s sleep, touching the dog while it’s eating and a lack of parental supervision between the child and dog.

Teaching children how to interact with dogs can reduce this risk!  Don’t wait until it’s too late!
