Safe Upbringing

Within the family sometimes small and sometimes large incidents take place with your dog. Your sweet pet dog suddenly bites your child. Clothes are damaged or worse, your child has bite wound in his arm, leg or face. Your child doesn’t like the dog that much any more, or has even become afraid of the dog. Not a very safe environment for bringing up your child(ren).

Bite incidents
Bite Incidents often occur because children and dogs do not understand each other well. For children it is difficult to interpret the dog’s body language, especially if they are not practiced in it. A dog grows large quickly for a child and therefore sometimes scary. For small children, a dog’s growl or showing his teeth soon seems like laughing. Children often cannot empathize the needs of a dog. Safe Upbringing can give you advice on how to keep it safe for both child ánd dog.
