Poster for children
Fearful dogs are more likely to bite than those that are well socialized. Studies show that most bites come from scared dogs not aggressive dogs.
Dogs exhibit many subtle signs to show they are frightened before they actually bite so a parent who is aware of these initial signs can prevent their child from being bitten. The 11 body language examples shown on this poster are all ones that parents should note and when they occur either redirect the dog, the child or both to other activities that put space between the child and the dog.
