Teach Kids Dog Safety Rules 

Always ask the owner before petting a dog. Respect if the owner says no.

Ask First

Pet dogs gently on the back or chest. Don't pull tails or ears.

Pet Gently

No screaming or fast movements which may scare dogs. Move slowly and don't stare into a dog's eyes.  

Stay Calm 

Don't crowd dogs or put your face close to them. Give them personal space.

Give Space

Learn to read dog body language. Growling or tense postures signal discomfort.

Watch the Signs

Never take a toy or food away from a dog. This is threatening behavior to them.

No Take Toys

Avoid petting unfamiliar dogs while sitting or lying down. It's less threatening to stand.

Stay Standing
