Each year millions of visits to emergency rooms are due to dog bites, and often times children are the most likely to get bitten…frequently by their own or a neighbor’s dog. But bites do not happen out of the blue and they can be prevented.
I hope to help set kids and their pets up for success and prevent bites through my educational programs called ‘My Dog’s Super Hero.’
During the programs, I teach kids ages 6 to 10, in a fun and engaging way, what it means to be their dog’s super hero. Included in my presentation will be the basics on the do’s and don’ts of playing appropriately with their dog, how to show responsibility and respect to their dog, and how dogs tell us when they are happy or when they want to be left alone.
Would you like for me to speak at your facility or for your group? Please contact me! I’d love to talk with you about it.
I periodically hold My Dog’s Super Hero classes for the public. My next class is Saturday, November 4, 2017. Please visit my Classes and Talks page to register!

Andrew helps demonstrate a great, easy behavior kids can teach their dog…hand touch or hand targeting. For information on teaching hand targeting, please visit my blog post.
