     The good weather is here!  With nice weather comes renewed life and unseen dangers.  While you may be looking forward to the lockdown ending so you an go on more walks with your dog, other people are looking forward to the good weather to let their dogs roam free.  Many of those dogs are not friendly with other dogs, because they are not socialized and they are territorial.  Learning how to prevent, manage, and defend yourself during an off-leash dog attack is a must!  The PAWS Training Group offers a Dog Safety Seminar to help you with this exact problem. 

     Learning to protect yourself against charging and attacking dogs is not as difficult as it sounds.  It starts with being able to remain calm because you are educated and have developed a game plan for the time when you have may be faced with this problem.  PAWS wants to make sure that you are more than equipped with information on how to prevent a dog attack, what to do when you are attacked, and proper greeting rituals for dog-dog and human-dog interactions. Most of all, keeping yourself, your family, and your pets safe from on-leash or off-leash charging/attacking dogs.
