10/9/2013 8:18:00 PM Library offers dog safety program for kids
Perkins Library is offering "Be a Tree," a dog bite prevention seminar presented by local "positive reinforcement" dog trainer Colleen Crummy. This free program is Tuesday, October 15, 5:30 PM and open to children age 4 years and older. This seminar 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.
The "Be a Tree" program is a leader in dog bite prevention programming. More than half a million children have experienced the program, which has the support of veterinary medical associations and veterinary technician associations. Call the library for more information, 405-547-5185. We ask that children under 8 years be accompanied by an adult.
