SEMINAR: Be-A-Tree

This 60 minutes 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 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 UW-AAB KPACTP CBATI is a licensed Be-A-Tree 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 careful listening as well as physical activities in the form of games and role play.

What Clients Are Saying:

I just wanted to drop a note and let you know that Jody worked with us and our puppy over the month of August, and she was absolutely excellent. The private training was the perfect choice to address our specific questions and learn about returning to Alberta with the pup, and how to help her adjust. We look forward to more training next summer at the lake! Jody has such a wonderful attitude toward the training, and we felt very confident with our plan for introducing our puppy to Alberta. The introduction to our neighbour dog (the one who charges and barks as his "greeting") was perfect. We did a parallel walk across the green space, then got closer and used treats from me for both dogs. There was no charging, and they are now well introduced and quite good pals already!

Lisbeth is one of a handful of individuals that we have worked with who intuitively understand how dogs work and think. Her classes, program organization, library and newsletter are outstanding.
