Doggone safe is the best bite prevention program I've found. I was a member and presenter when I owned a pet care business, and I still recommend this program often. Children aren't the only people who benefit. There are programs for professionals, such as postal carriers, who often come in contact with dogs. It's a program every community needs to have.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way children act around animals. Their behavior becomes safer and more predictable because they know how to react correctly, as well as learning to respect the animals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it available in every community. Otherwise, I can't think of any changes I'd make to the program.
