Kelly from Kelsview Dog Safety came to talk to the Pou Herenga Rua. Her dog Peaches came along with her so she could demonstrate how to be safe around dogs. One of her messages was not to tease your own dog but teach them tricks. Peaches could speak like a tractor, give high fives, chase a ball and return it and shake hands. That must have taken a while to learn those amazing tricks. These are some of the points she taught us on how to be safe around dogs.
Always ask permission from the dogs owner or an adult before you pat or touch a dog.
Never pat a dog on its head always touch the back or shoulder.
If a dog is eating stay well away.
