Safe and Sound
The Safe and Sound
Campaign for Children
The Safe and Sound course is great fun to do, to see their faces when they are learning something new that's priceless!
"It Makes my job so worthwhile"
All the children go home very happy and then they tell all their friends and family what they have learned, fantastic!
No dog is 100% safe. All dogs have 42 teeth - all can bite.
Children need to learn how to be SAFE AND SOUND.
Some activities children were carrying out with their dogs (without their parent's knowledge) included:
- 98% cuddling
- 80% kissing
- 38% smuggled them into their beds
- 75% shared food such as TV snacks
Therefore there is an obvious need to teach children to be safe around dogs.
We feel it is very important for everybody to know and to be aware how children behave around dogs.
Dogwise Training School is proud to start up a Safe and Sound course for children / teenagers and a new young junior dog handlers class.
Dogwise Training School will teach you how to be Safe and Sound around dogs and to train your dog safely.
The Safe and Sound course will only take about 30 minutes you will learn the do's and don'ts and how to talk your dog!
Once you have completed the Safe and Sound course you will go on to learn dog awareness skills in the junior handlers skills. This will set you up for life around dogs. We will be teaching hand signals and commands for sits, downs, stays, waits and taking food nicely and on command.
What will I learn...
- We will be teaching children how to behave around dogs.
- We will teach you how to stay safe around dogs.
- We will teach you how to speak dogs.
- We will teach you the rules and laws
- We will teach you how to train a dog
From 5-14 years of age.
A responsible adult will have to stay with the child and the dog at all times.
IT'S A MUST WITH CHILDREN!
