Dog Bite Prevention Resources for Children

Every year, more than 4 million people in the United States are bitten by dogs. Most of those victims are children under the age of 13. The youth education division of The Humane Society of the United States, the National Association for Humane and Environmental Education (NAHEE), hopes to change that.

NAHEE's dog bite prevention resources are designed to help you keep kids safe around dogs, reduce the number of dog-bite-related injuries in your community, and enhance the bond between people and dogs. The resources are perfect for use by teachers, humane educators, and parents.

The BARK (Be Aware, Responsible and Kind) Dog Bite Prevention Program is the only one of its kind proven effective in teaching elementary-school students how to behave safely around dogs. The programs consists of Dogs, Cats & Kids, a 25-minute video and a fun, easy-to-use 31-page activity book of lessons, reproducible worksheets and coloring pages designed to teach kids how to avoid being bitten.

In addition to teaching children important lessons on avoiding dog bites and providing hours of fun, Play It Safe with Dogs/Fuera de peligro en compania de perros lets kids learn Spanish or English. The 32-page coloring book features English and Spanish text and large, easy-to-color pictures on reproducible-quality paper.

Other available resources include The Doggone Crazy! board game and the Play It Safe with Dogs┬┐ Megaposter, teaching children the dos and don'ts of safe behavior around dogs and helping them learn to interpret dogs' body language.

The complete BARK Dog Bite Prevention Program costs $25 (The video and activity book can also be purchased separately for $22 and $7 respectively.) The Play It Safe with Dogs/Fuera de peligro en compania de perros coloring book is just $3. Discounts for large quantities are available.
