Dog Safety

#DogSafety  Leading animal welfare organisations have teamed up to produce a shareable infographic to encourage safe interactions with dogs.

Due to several tragic dog attack fatalities, it’s paramount that families are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to enjoy spending time with their dogs safely. 

The Canine and Feline Sector Group Dog Safety Code highlights three crucial messages that all dog owners and families need to know:

  • Be alert – Always keep an eye on your dog around kids. Never leave them alone together  
  • Be aware – Dogs use signals to tell us how they feel – What is your dog telling you?
  • Be safe – Any dog can bite. Accidents happen fast.
