"Don't worry, he's fine."
"She doesn't bite."
Professionals encountering dogs during the course of their jobs hear this all of the time. Many are already afraid after personally encountering aggression while others have heard horror stories from coworkers. Sometimes the dog may actually be fine but sometimes not. Usually they are good dogs who are simply responding to something they don't understand. 
Dog bites aren't good for anyone and, almost always, the situation could have been prevented. Learn how to keep everyone safe with informative, fun, interactive staff training.

What Attendees Are Saying

Katenna Jones on the Bitey End of the [Dog podcast] reinvigorated the 2 dogs/2 cats client to work more with the cat chaser and start focusing on training the cats too. They had been resistant to working with the cat skills.
