SEMINAR: Be-A-Tree

This 60-90 minute presentation is aimed at families and children from Kindergarten through Elementary school. NO DOGS, PLEASE!

 

Did you know that around 50% of children will have been bitten by a dog by the time they reach 12 years of age?

THE MAJORITY OF CHILDREN GET BITTEN BY A DOG THEY KNOW. It could be the family dog, a friend's dog or nana's dog.

Evidence that education is important for dog bite prevention

Evidence that children do not know how to read dog body language

Cowichan Canine offers all families - whether you have a dog or not! - to take advantage of this presentation on dog bite prevention. Lisbeth Plant ACDBC KPACTP CBATI is a licensed presenter for the non-profit organization Doggone Safe. This organization is dedicated to promoting education for the purpose of dog bite prevention and increased child safety around dogs, as well as to provide support for dog bite victims.

The Be A Tree-programme is aimed at elementary school children, but it also works well for children 5-6 years of age. The presentation itself takes 45-60 minutes, but we also allow for a break and we do a lot of role play to help the children memorize the message.

The presentation includes physical activities, games and role play, as well as just listening.

What Clients Are Saying:

I just wanted to touch base with you and give a big THANK YOU for your help with Kaiya. Kaiya is such a great dog. My mom and Step-dad came to visit last week, and they got on with Kaiya like gang-busters! She gave a few little grumbles to my step-dad the first evening when he was in the house, and then nothing. One walk and she fell in love with a few more family members. We still plan to continue Kaiya's training as discussed. Matt has worked with her so well that he takes her out into the big fields here and plays fetch with her off leash! I was very impressed.

Lisbeth -I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know that Lexy is doing great. We are so proud of her. In the last month it seems like she has realized that life is ok here and she doesn’t have to worry anymore. Resource guarding gone. No more worried looks. Even the door is ok now. When familiar people come she doesn’t even bother getting off the couch anymore and minimal barking with any other comings and goings. I have had her off leash a fair bit and she listens when I call her. And she regularly turns around to see where I am. Best of all, she loves to swim and she loves the sailboat. Thanks for all your help – Warm regards from us and Lexy !!
