It is a universal dog lover behavior to walk directly up to a dog you have never met, reach out and pet him on the head and gaze into his eyes. Those are exactly the behaviors that invoke fear and aggression in strange dogs.
The week of May 17-23 is “National Dog Bite Prevention Week”.
On May 15, 2015 I will be giving presentations of “How to Meet and Greet Strange Dogs” at St. John Ev. Lutheran School in Two River, WI. at 9am for K-4th grade. I will be at Bethany Ev. Lutheran School in Manitowoc, WI at 1pm. also for grades K-4.
Let’s learn the proper way to introduce ourselves to a new dog. He will respect you for it, and you leave having a great experience.
