The main goals of Doggone Safe are education and prevention. They do an ongoing excellent job toward achieving those goals. I recently wrote an academic article on the often unrecognized PTSD that haunts some children after a dog attack. In that process, I reviewed many articles and web sites on all aspects of dog bites. There is not one source that comes close to the thoughtful, non-conflict of interest and comprehensive coverage provided by Doggone Safe. I found their section on “If Your Child is Bitten a Dog” a supportive and useful recognition that there will always be unfortunate victims no matter how diligently we work on prevention. The parents of these victims appreciate the easy availability of that section. I will soon be presenting “Be A Tree” to a local school where I volunteer.

Great safety tips on how to get kids to behave properly around dogs. As a professional dog trainer, I really see the need for good safety programs for kids, and Doggone Safe is one of the best! I frequently give the Be A Tree presentation and everyone loves it. While a serious topic, the program has been developed to be entertaining, interactive and carefully repetitive to help kids thoroughly retain the information. The visuals are excellent and the "tools" for learning are fun. Most adults attending learn right along with the kids.

At our 2009 Animal Welfare Conference, the session on the Be a Tree Program was one of the highlights of the conference. This practical, easy to understand dog bite prevention program is a great resource for children and adults.

I have been involved with several organisations that aim to produce a dog safe child. My goal would be for them all to own and promote the Doggone Crazy board game. It should be available as past of the curriculum in every school in this country. Please find a way to reduce the horrendous postage and keep up the flow of invaluable information and all the good work! Oliver Beverly, CLEAR Dog Training, Brisbane, Australia.

Doggone Safe is an amazing resource that is shared with each and every one of our puppy and dog teams that learn and train with us. Doggone Safe's postcards are also made available, and we have the main website page displayed during all of our Start Right! Orientations. We share the sites excellent resources both in group and private sessions. And the feedback we receive for sharing Doggone Safe with others is simply outstanding. Doggone Safe's resources are a must-have for canine education programs!

Doggone Safe is a wonderful organization that provides invaluable information teaching the public how to safely interact with dogs. As a professional trainer that specializes in behavior, I often refer my clients to the Doggone Safe website as a resource. I have also taught the Be a Tree bite prevention program to many children who have been very enthusiastic and excited to participate and learn how to recognize dogs' body language, along with safety. This organization is without a doubt responsible for educating many adults and children, and keeping them smart and safe.

I first found the Be A Tree presenter kit 5+ years ago when trying to put information on dog bite safety for local preschool/ elementary age children. The presentation is concise and easy to follow. It keeps the kids attention and the adults watching have come away having learned as well. The audience enjoys being involved - by being a tree or rock and the interactive game. I have had nothing but positive reviews from all the presentations I have done.

People getting bitten by dogs is in most cases due to misunderstandings between the two species. To prevent this problem it is essential for both adults and children to learn to read canine body language and to behave in a way that dogs view as non-threatening. Doggone Safe is a pioneering organization working on educating people through their bite prevention program. Their work is extremely valuable!

Dog behavior is a field with more than its share of junk information, to the great detriment of dogs, their owners and the public at large. What an inspiration to see Doggone Safe do exactly the opposite: disseminate outstanding information. And, not only that, in an accessible manner to that group all of us want better to protect, children.

Bravo!

Having wonderful puppies that go to loving homes, The Doggone Safe Organization helps these homes with children. The brochures, cards and classes teach the children in a fun way and also help them love their pets even more. All children would benefit from this organization because of the encounters with pets is everywhere.
