Humane Education Program

We’d love to visit your school and talk to the students about safe behavior around dogs!

We’ve partnered with the nationally recognized “Be A Tree” program, which is run through Doggone Safe. In clear language that children can understand, we show children how to approach a dog — and how to behave when a dog approaches them.

We sometimes bring our wonderful Pit Bull Ambassador Timmy to the school with us to let the children see how effective “Be A Tree” behavior is in calming a dog, and also to help dispel the misconception that pit bulls are an inherently dangerous breed.

Other times, we bring our boy Gus, who’s always smiling and wagging!
