New York City Bite safety and how to "speak dog"
programs for schools and organizations

Children between the ages the ages of 5-9 are the most at risk of
being bitten by dogs and 2/3 of children bitten are boys. Bites
mostly occur with a dog in the home and not a stray dog. We can
change these numbers by learning the safest ways to listen to
what dogs are telling us and the best ways to interact with them.  
We offer Bite Safety and understanding canine body language
programs for children and youth and handling and skill
development workshops for pet care workers. Frania is a
Doggone Safe Bite Safety Educator.  Contact us
for your program

Our Humane Education programs target your learners, build
empathy for companion animals and make learning about
animals enriching, rewarding and fun.  Help us help your
students and their pets through what happens in your classroom.
