Project #1 - Preschool and Dog Program  ::

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 dogs 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

  • Feeding and grooming your dog  
  • Playing with your dog with / without toys  
  • Walking your pet dog

Topic 3:  How best to interact with dogs  

Topic 4:  Body language

  • Happy dog (playful, relaxed and friendly)  
  • Scared dog (submissive)  
  • Anxious dog (fearful)
  • Angry dog (aggressive)image: dog with leash
  • Guarding, alert

Topic 5:  Meeting dogs outside                            

  • Dog is on leash   
  • Dog is off leash
     

 


We proudly present the updated activity book 
"Fido, Friend or Foe?", in both English and French.

The fun colouring pages inside can be printed directly from the opened pdf document.

 

By Etta Agan Bradecamp, DVM, DACT, DABVP and Joanna Burnette Freeman, DVM, and recently updated in conjunction with RDOC.

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.

32 pages, available in English and French

Project #2 - Retirement Homes ... and Pets ::

Moving into a retirement home is a very big decision, especially if you have a pet. Most of us want to bring our beloved companions with us when we move.  

How do you choose the perfect retirement home not only for yourself, but also for your pets?  Well, we decided to do some research. We don't know about the perfect retirement home for you, but we can help by giving you information about the pet policies of several different retirement communities.

RDOC recently sent out a questionnaire to the retirement homes in the Ottawa-Carleton Region to learn about their pet policies.

Read the feedback from the retirement homes participating in the questionnaire here.
