APBC Approved Links to Dog Safety Resources for Children and Parents

 
Whenever a dog bites a child or is deemed a dangerous dog it often makes the headlines.  Rows break out, social networking sites are established and media campaigns are fought with fury. Emotions run high especially when children are involved and distressing for all concerned including the child their family and not forgetting the owners of the dog.
 
The APBC decided to discuss what we could do to help and formed an education team devoted to bite prevention. We believe that education is of paramount importance for child safety and in the future prevention of dog bites.
 
Originally we discussed designing our own bite prevention resource but after researching what was already available we were so impressed with what we found we decided to review and approve these sites instead.  This led to the APBC forming an approved links to dog safety resource page, http://www.apbc.org.uk/info/dog_safety_information
 
This resource page allows parents, children and teachers to source relevant sites without the hard work of trying to sift through all the irrelevant information on the Internet.
 
Thanks to all APBC members who gave their precious time freely and a special thanks to Alison Limentani who designed the page and provided the wonderful illustrations.
