Excellent advice – please SHARE
With summer holidays fast approaching and children due to spend more time outdoors over the next few months, today we are launching our first official Be Dog Smart Week!! 🐶 To help teach children everywhere how to stay safe around dogs.
Over the past 5 years, children under 16 accounted for 8,000 hospital admissions as a result of dog bites. That’s around four admissions every single day!!
#BeDogSmart Week is an important initiative that will help us continue to spread fundamental dog safety advice to thousands of children and parents across the UK. Whether your family owns a dog or not – 33% of children in the UK will encounter a dog every single day.
You can HELP us spread the word – by sharing this post far and wide.
