On Monday we had some very special visitors, Rina and Harry from Responsible Pet Ownership.
Rina and Harry taught us about being safe around dogs, what to do and not to do with a dog we don’t know and how to tell if a dog is happy or wants to be left alone.
We practised how to safely ask if we can pat a dog we don’t know. Stop 3 steps away, ask the adult, approach walking in a curve with our hands by our side. Place our thumb inside our fist and slowly put our closed hand out for the dog to sniff our hand. Then approach the dog standing and bending over, patting from the collar down to the back, dogs don’t like being patted on the head!!!
