National Dog Bite Prevention Week, May 15 to May 21, 2011, is coming to a close today. I hope you’ve enjoyed the articles and downloads. Here is a listing of the resources we’ve provided this week both on this web site as well as on the Huffington Post Blog and Victoria Stilwell’s Positively.com.  We will add a few more related prevention articles in the upcoming two weeks too. So stay tuned!

  • Thirty second animated Dog Bite Prevention PSA for adults and teens, that shows the precursors to bites and the result of ignoring them.  Please share this PSA. If we have enough views on youtube we will be able to make a follow-up educational piece on dog bite prevention for children to view. Feel free to embed it on your web site.

  • Free color poster The Body Language of Fear in Dogs in dogs. Fear is the most common cause of aggression and biting in dogs. Download a free handout/poster here. Make as many copies as you want for yourself or to distribute for free to your friends, clients, co-workers, and anyone who is around dogs.

  1. Great movie!

    Are there any thoughts of a continuation of “how to do it right”?
    To finish the film with positive emotions, so to speak.
    Have a great weekend!/Eva

  2. If the video is shared enough on youtube (way higher than now), then I can justify donating more $$ and time to make another longer version. So tell your friends to share.

  3. I sponsor the K-9 Service Club at Franklin Com High School (Franklin, IN). We volunteer for the Humane Society of Johnson County. I am very interested in any free resources that can help me train my kids to be safe pet handlers. I got the “Body Language of Fear in Dogs” poster from my veteranarian yesterday and LOVE it. How do I get my hands on more simular resources?
