The "Be A Tree" program and the information on dog body language is incorporated into every TAGteach certification seminar. The Doggone safe educational material is so clear and defined that it fits into the "important info only" policy that goes with our teaching protocol. Plus, attendees leave with powerful knowledge about bite prevention. It's a win/win for every attendee. Highly recommended!

My non-profit organization, Pets Forever, has included the “Be a Tree” program to help local children learn about how to interact with unfamiliar dogs. We have given this presentation in a variety of settings (ie., schools, gyms, businesses, summer camps) to a variety of different aged children. The feedback has always been extremely positive. The kids just love the presentation and appear to really learn something from it. I highly suggest this presentation to any community or group that is trying to educate children on how to interact with dogs and ultimately minimize the chances of a child being bit.

As a professional dog trainer who has given numerous Doggone Safe presentations, I feel it is simply the best Dog Bite Prevention program available.

It is easy to adapt to suit any age level from Kindergarten to High School.

The feedback I have received from students and teachers has always been positive, with teachers often telling me how beneficial they found it personally.

This is a great program!
