Volunteers with the S.D.K.C. give freely of their time as handlers/instructors to educate the public on dog bite prevention. This is a hands on experience where the handlers and dogs interact with the public and demonstrate the use of human and canine body language.
The program explains the “Aggressive Dog” or “The Fear Biting Dog” in order to educate the public so there are fewer dog bites and to allow happier families and pets.
The bite prevention program has been presented throughout the community, including local schools, privately owned companies, day care facilities, and girl guides. Volunteers have traveled as far as Elliot Lake to lend their expertise and to provide demonstrations to schools in the area, and feedback about the program has been extremely supportive.
