The Be a Tree Educational Program 

If you are a PPG member or a Doggone Safe individual member, purchasing the Be a Tree Presentation will give you access to more resources and make you your community expert on Dog Bite Prevention for school-aged children.

The Be a Tree program is a dog bite prevention seminar for school-age children. This program focuses on fun and interactive activities to teach children how to read dog body language and act safely around their dogs and strange dogs.

The Be a Tree program is supported by a teacher kit that presenters use to ensure a consistent and accurate presentation. The program and the kit have been developed and reviewed by experts and are designed for use by classroom teachers and presenters.

Half of all kids are bitten by a dog by the time they are 12 years old. A good percentage of these bites are from a dog the child knows. Join our growing Be a Tree Presenters list and help educate your local kid’s community.

The program is designed to be delivered through a computer, laptop, or projector, or posters and interactive activities.
