As a former elementary school teacher and now current dog trainer, I have seen the results of dog bites to children.
When this occurs it is not just the body that is hurt, but the mind and soul are hurt as well. Hearing the stories that lead up to the bite, I found that many times these situations may have been avoided with prior knowledge regarding canine body language.
I developed Stop, Look and Paws as one tool that can start the process of understanding some basic canine body language and that each dog can be uniquely different. Its purpose is to give children and their guardians an opportunity to work together using a hands-on learning activity to begin the process of understanding common scenarios and dogs body language.
