Be a Tree for First Nations

Here is a note we received from Doggone Safe member and Be a Tree presenter, Melissa Millett of In Dogs We Trust motivational dog training.

I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that today I had an amazing day giving the Be A Tree Presentation to Sk through to grade 8 all day!

We were at a school at the Kettle Point first nations reserve all day giving the presentations for animal awareness day. This is an excellent place for the presentation as there are many stray/feral dogs and tied dogs out there. In fact we saw quite a few just running loose while we were there.

It was really nice to have the presentation that was interactive and geared towards children. The kids really enjoyed it, as well as the teachers.

Thanks for providing the be a tree, it helped me get the information across in a fun and interactive way that was child friendly!
First Nations communities often have situations with dogs running loose and dogs tied up, as Melissa notes. We are always pleased to hear that our members are helping to educate people in these high risk conditions.
