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.
