Dog Safety Sessions for children.
Lincoln Vet Centre proudly offers free dog safety presentations to kindergartens, childcare centres and junior primary students.
Using the principles of the Delta Dog Safe program, these sessions teach positive, proactive ways to behave around dogs, to reduce the incidence of dog bites in children.
Our clinic manager Emma Coates (a qualified behavioural dog trainer) delivers child and parent education on how to read dogs’ body language, how to react in certain situations and how to safely greet and play with dogs.
Dog Safe volunteers use kid-friendly lessons developed by animal behaviourists involving role playing, story telling and a large, non-threatening toy dog which means children who are scared of dogs can participate without feeling afraid.
The lessons children learn in a Delta Dog Safe presentation will last for many years to come and most importantly, it will keep them safe for a lifetime.
Call Emma on (08) 8682 3100 to arrange a session for your childcare centre or school.
Delta the Dog is used as a 'friendly dog' in these education sessions.
