Responsible Pet Ownership

Diana and her cavoodle, Basil, visited our school on Monday 26th November. Diana taught us about ways to be safe around dogs. We learnt no matter how cute a dog is, if there is no owner and no lead, we don’t pat the dog. If the dog is on a lead and with its owner, you ask the owner if it safe to pat their dog.

We also learnt if we are confronted by an angry dog we make ourselves look as boring as possible so the angry dog loses interest and goes away.

Some children from each class were able to pat Basil using the safe way to approach a dog on a lead with its owner. Please see the photos of the children patting Basil.
