Dog Bite Prevention

be a treeI am passionate about safety for dogs and children together, both in private and public places. As 1 in 4 families own a dog in the UK today it is essential that children are educated about dog bite prevention and  safety around dogs. I can give presentations in schools, scout clubs, after school clubs or in private, the talk is aimed at all children who are of primary school age 5-11yrs old.

The Be a Tree program is a dog bite prevention seminar program for school age children. This program focuses on fun and interactive activities to teach children how to read dog body language and how to act safely around their own dog and strange dogs.

Half of all children are bitten by a dog by the time they are 12 years old. Find out for yourself by asking your students how many have been bitten and how many knew the dog that bit them.

Bites are preventable in many cases with a little education, so why not give me a call and we can talk about how making a presentation to your students could really help prevent dog bites in the future and it is fun too.

I offer 3 different dog bite prevention programs

New Baby

For families who are about to welcome a new bundle of joy. I come to your house and talk you through the best way to prepare your furry friend for the new arrival and how best to manage the first few months and first year of your new babies life around your dog.


Children & New Dog

For people with older children (over 2 years old) who are bringing a dog home for the first time. I teach you and your family how to read dog body language. We then make a plan on the best way to introduce your new dog to your family so that your first few days are successful. Leading the way for a wonderful life together.

If you would like to book me to present the Be A Tree Program to a group of children in school or after school activity clubs please do get in touch and I can give you further information. I organise to try to get sponsorship from local businesses to your school or club so that local businesses can support a great scheme and have advertising opportunities by having their logo printed on to the material the children get to take home a postcard reminding them of their tools and a certificate. I have 4 different packages businesses can choose from. Download the package pdf here
