Do Your Kids Speak Dog? Woof, Woof!

You may be surprised to learn that dogs can say a lot more than "woof", but they say it with their bodies not their voices. Make sure that your kids know how to speak dog. Even if you don't have a dog, you can be sure that many of your child's friends do.

Most dog bites to children are by a family pet known to the child. Most dog owners don't know the signs warning of an eventual bite and although they may be supervising they are surprised and shocked when a bite happens. Dogs don't bite out of the blue, and the dog will have been giving warnings, but no-one was listening Just because the adults don't know stuff, is no reason for kids not to know it.

Dogs are everywhere and the vast majority are nice dogs. Nevertheless, all kids need to learn how dogs communicate and when to stay away or leave them alone. Treating dogs respectfully is good for kids and dogs.

Watch and sing along with this fun and educational video from The Family Dog, dog trainers in New Jersey.
