A book teaching kids about dog safety to prevent bites & attacks

A child's book of dog body language with pictures: help keep children safe

A Child’s Book of Dog Body Language with Pictures is a book intended to be read by an adult to a child. The adult can determine which portions or the entire book, is age appropriate. It is an educational book to help prevent possible dog bites, as well as helping children know how to treat a dog, in order to have good relationships with them. 

Too often as parents, we simply don’t think about teaching safety issues concerning dogs, until there’s a situation happening. Usually that is not the time for teaching, but for action. Prevention can go a long way. 

This book is one an adult can use for both a child who is perhaps fearful of dogs, and a child who is bold with dogs, but should learn more respect. There is a note to parents at the beginning of the book, asking especially that the book be read completely before reading to a child. Parents know the stages of their kids as well as the child’s temperament and history they've had with dogs. All these factors come into play when teaching about safety and dogs. 

I've tried hard to try to make this as least frightening as possible, and to encourage healthy dog/child relationships. The book closes with some silly photos to end on a lighter note.

Sample text:

This book is intended to be read to a child by an adult.  Hopefully it will trigger good conversation and help keep children safe from dog bites, as well as help build good relationships with dogs.  Sometimes fear of the unknown is worse than equipping children with basic knowledge, especially in a non-threatening environment such as reading a book with a loved adult, and not in the present moment with a dog. 


It may be helpful for a child who is perhaps fearful of dogs, although caution when reading should be used. It is a difficult balance to strike, equipping safety strategies and yet not teaching fear.  Each child is at different stages and has different feelings and experiences about dogs.  What might be perfect for one child might be the worst thing for another.  You know your child best.  Please read this book yourself before reading to a child.  Skip the parts that might be too much for them, and add more where needed, including some of your own experiences.







It is important to learn about dogs, how to treat them and how to look at their body language to try to tell how they are feeling.  Learning these things helps to keep children safe from unfriendly dogs, as well as helping children to have good friendships with other dogs, and knowing how to treat them correctly.







Critical Basics


Dogs can be amazing animals and best friends.  They are usually friendly and loyal.  They needed to be treated well with proper food in the right amounts, fresh water, exercise, and a good and loving home with people.
