Prevent the Bite WAIT!

Once again it is time for dog bite prevention week and I thought you might enjoy this video with Kelly Voigt, a young lady who was bitten as a child. She now helps educate others about safety techniques using the W-A-I-T concept.

W Wait to see if the pet dog looks friendly.
A Ask the owner for permission to approach/touch the dog.
I Invite the canine to approach you.
T Touch the pet dog using appropriate petting.

Now I’ve written about this topic numerous times and I’ll post a few more factoids for you this week–but get reading on some of the previous posts about dog bite prevention via the links below.
