A Child's Book of Dog Body Language with Pictures: Help Keep Children Safe

A Child's Book of Dog Body Language with Pictures: Help Keep Children Safe has just been released.

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.

Not trying to be overly critical here, but I would recommend you talk to Amazon about the sample that's available for free. It contains no useful information, just the "Note to parents" that you've essentially duplicated here. I can't decide if I want it without a little more to go on--like at least one actual example from the book. Thanks!

I appreciate your feedback.

It teaches about dog body language in their eyes, mouth, body stance, hackles up, tail wagging, fear, and dog aggression (growling, showing teeth) with photos. The goal of the book is to hopefully prevent dog attacks or bites. Even children without dogs in the home should be taught, because most children may run into strange dogs at some point, or a friends' home and could come into contact with a potentially dangerous dog. It also has a section on what to do if an aggressive dog attacks.

I emphasize parental involvement because its a sensitive subject and only they know how far is too far to teach their child.

Here is a excerpt of a beginning page.
"Here are some basics first about how to treat a dog in general, even if it’s your own pet. First is never to hit a dog or tease them in any way. If a dog is eating, drinking water or sleeping, leave them alone, this is not the time for them to play. Some dogs get very cranky when this happens and might bite, when normally they wouldn't. Don’t ever sit or jump on a dog. Try to keep calm and talk in a normal voice, not jumping up and down and screaming. To some dogs, this is frightening, or they can get over-excited."
