News release from Lancashire County Council
For Immediate Release
29 January 2015
A Lancashire project to reduce the number of dog bites on children has received extra funding.
Leyland-based Canine Education and Training has been given £750 from County Councillor Kim Snape, Lancashire County Council's Champion for Young People.
The aim is to reduce the number of dog bites on children and young people each year by helping them to be aware of how dogs behave and how to spot difficult situations.
Councillor Snape said: "We're pleased that the county council has been able to support this project. This money will be used to develop the programme and encourage more schools to join in, which will spread the message to more children.
"We've all seen incidents that are covered in the media where children have been injured or even killed by dogs. It's important that we help them to know how to stay safe."
The Living Safely with Dogs campaign is aimed at 5-16 year olds. It is organised by Canine Education and Training CIC, a not-for-profit organisation which was set up to educate children about how to live safely with dogs.
Canine Education and Training work with schools and children's organisations across Lancashire to raise awareness of dog behaviour and understand their body language and natural instincts. They also teach children how to defuse a dangerous situation if one arises, and how to live to live safely in the home with a pet dog.
Chief executive Shirley King said: “This is a new venture and one I feel is well overdue. Our children need to be taught how to be safe around dogs, as they are also the dog owners of the future, and we want them to grow up having a better understanding of how a dog thinks and behaves.”
The project has been well received by schools in the area and is delivered at no cost to the school, but the organisation asks that the school undertakes a fundraising activity which they will happily set up and organise. Each child receives important information about living safely with the dogs to take home.
In November 2014 the programme was delivered to over 1,100 children across Lancashire.
