Dog Safety Tips (Humans Only)

1:30pm - 3pmSun Jun, 7

Community Rm A+B

This lecture will give kids/adults tips for staying safe around dogs.  Whether it is a friend's dog or an unknown dog that approaches you, many people do not know what the correct action is.  According to presenter Barbara McClew, children 12 and under receive nearly three quarters of all reported dog bites. As the warm weather encourages both humans and canines to spend more time outdoors, it's important to understand how to interact safely.

Professional dog trainer Barbara McClew endorses positive training methods that enable canines to WANT to learn thus making learning fun and desirable. She holds certification from the Animal Behavior College (ABC) and has owned and trained her own dogs for over 30 years. She currently lives in Somerset with her human family, five dogs (three Schipperkes, one Mixed Breed and one Shepherd Mix), two cats and many tanks of tropical fish.

This informative program is FOR HUMANS ONLY. Teens and school-age children accompanied by an adult are welcome to attend. All pets must be left at home. Registration is requested; sign up today!
