Dogs are fantastic animals and make wonderful friends for children. Children need to understand how dogs feel and how to stay safe around them. This little book will help you understand a little of how dogs feel and how children can have a safe happy relationship with them.

Helping Children Understand Dog’s

This book has been brought together from an educational programme I developed and delivered into primary schools, and can be used by parent and teachers to help children of all ages

Having worked with dogs for over 30 years, I am very passionate about educating the next generation on the important message of understanding dog’s and learning how to avoid an attack or aggression.

This is a very simple message that all children can learn and use in any situation, avoiding injury, death and the dog being destroyed. There has been a big increase in dog ownership over the past few years exacerbating the problems children may have. If we are going to allow predatory fight and flight animals into our home, we must teach children how dogs behave, communicate and what they do and don’t like.

In 2014 I started Canine Education, focusing on educating young children on the behaviour and needs of the dog and how to have a safe happy relationship with them.
