Simple Rules When Approaching Any Dog

  • Before you or your child pets someone's dog, ask the dog's guardian for permission. If you signed the "Animal Permission Form", you have permission to pet Buddy.
  • If it's OK, approach slowly and quietly. Always approach from the front.
  • Once you have permission to pet a dog, slowly bring your hand towards the dog from the side, not above. Keep your fist closed and let the dog sniff your hand first. Then pet the dog gently.
