'Going to the Dogs'
We would like to thank everybody who participated in the 'Going to the Dogs' fundraiser. It was a great success. The money we raised will be used to enhance our educational programs and to encourage responsible dog ownership.
A special thank you goes to all our donors and volunteers. We could not have done this fundraiser without your help.

Handing out more 'Fido, Friend or Foe?' activity books
Working on the 'Dogs and Kids' safety project (booklet for 5 to 8 year olds) on 'How to be safe around dogs while having fun'
Publishing a monthly newsletter for children (5 to 8 year olds), the 'Kid's Edition' of 'The Dog Guardian'

RDOC proudly announces the publication of our updated activity book on Dog Safety, "Fido, Friend or Foe?", which is available on our website as a pdf, in both French and English. There are lots of colouring pages that can be printed from the pdf file, as well as
safety information to be aware of when children and dogs are together.
Don't forget to visit the Kids Activity Pages on our website. We have some easy tricks to
teach your dog, fun puzzles to solve, and pictures to colour.
We also have lots of links for parents about keeping children safe around dogs.
