Sublime K9 Dog Training Will Participate in the International Dog Bite Prevention Challenge(May 04, 2013)
Wantagh, New York (PRWEB) May 04, 2013
Sublime K9 Dog Training will participate with Doggone Safe in the International Dog Bite Prevention Challenge. It challenges its presenters to visit schools and educate 50,000 children about dog safety during the months of Mar-May. So far 52 presenters have pledged to educate over 30,000 children in six countries, six Canadian provinces and twenty four US states.
Half of all children are bitten by a dog and most of the time the biter is the family dog or another dog known to the child. The number of bites to children is atrociously high and can easily be reduced through education. The Be a Tree program aims to provide this education, said Teresa Lewin, vice president and cofounder of Doggone Safe.
Jessica Freedman is a presenter of the Be a Tree dog bite prevention program for school children. The program is delivered by Doggone Safe presenters, veterinary technicians, dog trainers, dog behaviorists, public health nurses, emergency medical services personnel, animal control officers, police officers, teachers and humane educators. Presenters use a teacher kit which contains large format photographs showing dog body language signs, games and activities. Program sponsors can purchase supplementary branded learning materials such as coloring books, paint sheets, a story book, a poster, stickers, bookmarks and fridge magnets. Over 700,000 children worldwide have experienced the Be a Tree presentation since 2004. Through the International Dog Bite Prevention Challenge, Doggone Safe aims to increase this number significantly.
I love be a tree (and be a rock). It's the best of its kind. This information has to get out there, said Jean Donaldson Internationally recognized dog behavior expert, award-winning author and director of the Academy for Dog Trainers.
