Dogs bite 4.5 million people each year with more than 800,000 Americans receiving medical attention — at least half of them are children.

Central Bark Doggy Day Care is a leading dog bite prevention advocate in the country and has taken a stand against this serious yet preventable public health problem.

In 2012, Central Bark created their year-round interactive Bite Prevention curriculum to combat dog bites with one goal — teach elementary-aged children how to properly interact with dogs.

The outcome: children never have a traumatic experience – one that might have serious or life threatening consequences.

Bottom line: reduce the number of dog bites by educating children on dog behavior.

Central Bark Doggy Day Care is dedicated to minimizing child-related dog bites and will forever continue to educate our kids on staying safe.
