Stop The 77

Although dogs are amazing at dealing with what a family can throw their way, they still may need your help. Kids can sometimes be scary to dogs because they’re KIDS — more unpredictable, more unruly, more uncoordinated and way more likely to get in a dog’s face than most adults. So to keep them safe, it’s YOUR job to watch and listen. Dogs use their whole bodies to show you how they’re feeling.

Make sure the dogs around your kids are ALWAYS comfortable. Be a hero and at the first sign that they’re not — give them a break! Move your child far enough away so that the dog can relax again. After all, if no one is there to protect dogs, they’re left with no choice but to protect themselves — and that’s something no one wants!

Stop The 77.
