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 cannot say enough wonderful things about cowichan canine!!! My pup went through the puppy start right and then onto the foundation classes. Stef and Stephanie were fantastic!!! Both classes are well run, organized, they are excellent teachers and spend time with you and your dog. The class sizes are small which makes an excellent learning facility. Stef and Stephanie are patient and kind. The knowledge is second to none. You are able to ask questions and have one on one time as necessary. Did I mention how clean the facility is...? Holy you'd never know dogs are there all day. We wanted to give our pup his best chance and cowichan canine certainly facilitated that.

Chewie and I just finished the Foundation Programme, with distinction, in 7 weeks. We would not have been able to accomplish this if it wasn't for the team of ladies at Cowichan Canine. Chewie is James and my first puppy, and we were pretty clueless. Thanks to the guidance of Bev, Karen and Lisbeth we are proud of our dog, but also of the "puppy parents" we have become. We hope to continue our education at Cowichan Canine, and we recommend the training facility to anyone who owns a dog. And it all started with the Puppy Socialization class! Thank you so much!
