Bite safety and how to "speak dog" programs for schools
and organizations

Children between the ages the ages of 5-9 are the most at risk of being
bitten by dogs and 2/3 of children bitten are boys. Bites mostly occur
with a dog in the home and not a stray dog. We can change these
numbers by learning the safest ways to listen to what dogs are telling us
and the best ways to interact with them.  We offer Bite Safety and
understanding canine body language programs for children and youth
and handling and skill development workshops for pet care workers.
Frania Shelley-Grielen is also a certified
