Integrating Dogs with Children

Dogs with Children

Miscommunication between dogs and children happens every day!

Green Planet Pet Center is dedicated to providing parents with the tools and support they need to assure that dog and child interactions are safe, happy and mutually enriching for both dog and child.

It is the role of the parent to create and sustain a balanced environment that facilitates mutual respect between child and dog.  Children and dogs are unable to create this balance on their own.

According to statistics provided by US  Humane Society, 50% of children will be bitten by a dog before the age of twelve.  Most bites are from a dog the child knows. Children ages five through nine are bitten more than any other age groups and boys are bitten twice as often as girls.

In this program you will learn:

  • How to recognize and interpret the body language of your dog as potential risk factors
  • Skills and techniques to foster a safe and enjoyable environment within your home and amidst life activities that your child and dog may engage in.
  • Child skill and confidence building techniques depending on the age of your child.
  • Dog manners and appropriate social interaction with children

We are licensed presenters of the Doggone Safe:
Be a Tree Program www.doggonesafe.com and are available to schools and daycare facilities to teach children about bite prevention and safe interactions with dogs. You may call us or email us directly for more information.
