RDOC is very pleased to announce that the Canadian Canine Good Citizen Test (CCGCT) program has restarted!
We would like to thank everybody for their patience while we reorganized the program.
RDOC is working to develop and implement a Dog Bite Prevention Program.
"Be A Tree" - Be safe around a strange dog. Be safe around dogs you know.
Over the past year we have been working on our Preschool and Dog Program. We created a package to give to preschool teachers to use as a resource when working on child and dog safety with their students.
In this project we focused on 5 topics:
Topic 1: Talking to children about dogs
Topic 2: Looking after dogs
Topic 3: How best to interact with dogs
Topic 4: Body language
Topic 5: Meeting dogs outside
RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERSHIP

By Etta Agan Bradecamp, DVM, DACT, DABVP and Joanna Burnette Freeman, DVM,
The purpose of this activity book is to teach children how to act responsibly and safely around dogs. It can be used as a starting point to talk to children about bite prevention.
The book includes several informative illustrations that can be printed out and coloured.
