This week's Day Training Extra Credit:
It's Dog Bite Prevention Week! Did you know that 77% of dog bites are from a family or friend's dog? Since we are most likely to be bitten by dogs we know and love, we are also most able to prevent these bites! Brush up on your knowledge of dog body language and stress signals, stay out of risky situations, and learn to ask for consent both before starting to pet and while petting ALL dogs, even your own love bug! Not only could you prevent a dog bite, but you create a real, two-way conversation about interactions that can form the foundation of a richer, more authentic relationship.
