Playing It Safe With Dogs

Registration is required and begins November 14th. On Monday, November 28 from 5:30-6:15 children ages 5-9 are invited to learn how to safely interact with dogs they know and don’t know. The program never uses the word “bite”, rather it is a workshop that helps children to understand how dogs feel. For example, how they might feel if you take a toy, food, or wake them up when they are fast asleep. Children will also receive an activity book to take home. This event is generously sponsored by Animal Rescue Rhode Island located in Peace Dale,
