Canine Safety for Children
(EDITOR'S NOTE: The
following article on Canine
Safety for Children was pre
paréd by Lucille E. Meystedt,
R. N., of the Balu Kennels
in Rusk.)
In just a short time it will
be futnmer. This is a happy
time for all of us and mostly
for the children. After a
long winter which you and the
dogs have spent long hours
in the house or school, you
will be looking forward to
spending as much time as
possible out of doors. It is
during this time out of doors
that the children run the rist
of being bitten by a strange
dog, because many of them are
also out at this time.
It seems that each year,
more and more children are
being bitten. As a dog owner,
and a nurse,.and a person
who likes children and dogs
I would like to pass on the
following as safety rules to
follow for your protection and
the protection of your play-
mates. Remember many
times it is not the dog itself
that is to blame for a dog
bite, it is you, the child as
well as the dog owner who
lets the dog run loose.
If you follow the rules below
we hope to have very few,
dog bites in Rusk this
summer.
Remember - For your safety
Never Approach A Strange
Dog!
Respect And Obey The Leash
Laws; Keep your dog fenced
or tied at home and on a
leash when away from home.
When You See A Strange Dog
That Is Loose; Remain in
Calm - try pot to show fear.
Walk at a normal pace and
ignore the dog. Running or
screaming may startle a dog
to attack.
When A Strange Dog Come-
Clo'eToYou: Remainclam-
stand motionless - try not to
show fear. Speak quietly to
the dog ("Good dog - go
home now"X letting the dog
know you intend no harm.
Protect Yourself If A Dog
Should Attack; Cover your
face and nect with your arms*
If you are knocked lown, roll
onto your stomach and remain
quiet.
If You Are Bitten By A Dog:
Tell your parents right away
so that the wounds can be
washed and your doctor con-
tacted immediately.
Try to remember what the
dog looks like so it may be
located for observation.
Dogs You Know, Including
Your Own Dog; Offer the
back of your hand for the
dog to sniff. Keep your move-
ments slow and gentle as you
get re-acquainted.
Do not let playing with a
dog result in teasing the dog.
Dogs love to play but resent
self-'letense.
It is dangerous to approach
a keeping doe, to take food
from a dog that is eating, or
to interfere with a mother dog
caring for her puppies.
Dogs That Are Fenced,
Chained, On Leash Or Har-
nessed; Never approach with-
out the owner's permission.
Teasing, threatening or
throwing things at confined
dogs will anger them. Rem-
ember, Fences Can Be
Jumped. Chains, Ropes And
Leashes May Break.
A dog leading a blind person
should never be approached,
even for praise. Any distra-
ction may cause the dog to
make a mistake with possible
harm to his master.
