Be A Tree
Be safe around a strange dog
1.Fold your brances (hands).
2.Watch you roots grow (feet).
3.Count in you head until the dog goes away or help comes.
Be safe around dogs you know
Dogs don't like hugs and kisses- scratch the side of his neck instead.
Play safe games- fetch, teach tricks, hide and seek- no tug or chasing games.
Ask an adult to play too!
Respect the dog's resting place, toys, food and chews.
LOOK AND THINK
A safe dog is....
On a leash with a person you know.
Wagging, panting and looking happy to see you.
A dangerous dog is...
- Running lose.
- Growling, showing his teeth or raising the fur on his back.
- Looking worried with his mouth closed and a half moon or white showing in his eye.
- Warning you to stay away by raising his tail high over his back.
- Holding his tail between his legs, wagging his tail between his legs or wagging his tail slowly and way up in the air.
