Being safe around dogs

Last Thursday we had Erin and her dog Jax visit our school to show us how to be responsible and safe around dogs.  The students learnt about the body language of dogs and how that shows us what they are feeling.  They also learnt the 4 steps to approach a dog safely, walk slowly, stop, let the dog sniff the back of your hand and pat their back between their neck and tail.  It was a great afternoon!
