Why have a dog?

Dogs and children can be great friends and having a dog can help children

develop kindness, understanding and respect for living things. Pets

can improve a child's social skills with people and caring for a pet can

encourage responsibility.

Because of this many families have dogs. Children will quickly learn to treat

your dog as part of the family but it is important that you teach your child

to stay safe around your dog so that both of them are protected.

This leaflet will help you to learn about dog behaviour so your children

stay safe and your dogs stay happy.
