How to Stay Safe Around Dogs You Don't Know

Tuesday, March 28, 2023 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Dogs are all around us, so let's be ready to interact with them in a safe and respectful manner. Learn how to ask a dog's permission to pet them and how to tell if they are enjoying it. Also learn what to do if approached by a strange dog or one that might be jumping on you. This event is geared towards children, but the content is equally valuable to adults as well. An adult must be present to supervise children and assist as needed. This workshop will be hosted via Zoom on 3/28 at 6pm. A Zoom link will be emailed to you after you register to attend the event. Please register here.

Lisa's presentation during the workshop will be recorded. We will request all attendees to mute themselves and if they prefer to turn off their cameras.
