A non-fiction picture book that aims to teach children how to behave safely around dogs and thereby hopefully reduce the risk of being bitten.
'Learning how and under what circumstances to approach a dog are vital lessons for your child. It can mean the difference between a lifelong love of animals or a lifelong fear. This book provides children with an excellent introduction to understanding dog behaviour' - Dr Hugh J Wirth, AM, KSJ, BVSc (Melb), FAVA - Veterinarian and President, RSPCA Australia
The text takes children through a series of situations in which it would be inadvisable to pat a dog, and then teaches them how to pat a dog correctly and how to deal with situations in which dogs can get out of control.
