SAFETY TIPS FOR PREVENTING INJURIES:
ASK FIRST! – When meeting an unfamiliar dog, don’t reach out to pet them. “May I pet your dog?”
GET PERMISSION – With permission, let the dog sniff your closed hand, then pet her shoulders or chest.
DON’T TOUCH – Don’t touch a dog who is sleeping, eating, or chewing a toy.
STAY AWAY – Stay away from a dog who is barking or growling, as well as one who is loose, behind a fence or tied up.
