May is National Dog Bite Prevention Month.

The most commonly reported public health problem is dog bites. Half of all children will be bitten by a dog by age 12 and the majority of these bites are by the family dog or other dog known to the child.

Join us on Thursday, April 30th at 7:00 PM at Roseville for a free Dog Bite Prevention Seminar hosted by Roseville Veterinary Clinic, Plaza Pet Clinic, and Head of the Class Dog Training.

This free interactive one hour presentation and talk for grade school age children and parents will teach children the safest way to interact with a dog and the warning signs dogs give so they can avoid being victims of bites. Most importantly, because parents are invited to attend with their children, it opens up an important dialogue in families about dog safety.

Children will learn:

  • to read dog body language
  • to act safely around familiar dogs
  • how to act when encountering strange dogs

Lisa Marino of Head of the Class Dog Training is a licensed Doggone Safe Presenter. Doggone Safe is a non-profit organization dedicated to dog bite prevention through education.

This seminar is free to all, but we do request you RSVP in advance to 540-837-1334 or email jennifer@rosevillevet.com

Thank you and we hope to see you there!
