How to Greet a Dog (And What to Avoid)

Came across this leaflet a couple of weeks back on “How to Greet a Dog (and What to Avoid)” at a local fair for pet owners. Reading it, I realized that I was doing everything wrong when it comes to approaching an unknown dog. I’m guessing that you might be as well.

Did you know, for example that you aren’t supposed to approach an unknown dog directly and look it in the eyes? You are supposed to approach sideways and watch the dog with your peripheral vision.

So head over to Dr. Sophia Yin’s website and fill out a simple form to get the flyer.

While you’re there, there are videos to watch and have your children watch that will teach everyone how to avoid being bitten by any dog, unknown or familiar.
