The D O G G O N E smart at work program is an occupational dog bite prevention and dog safety seminar for service providers and workers who may encounter dogs on the job. The purpose of this program is to provide workers with the tools they need to prevent dog bites on the job.
This program is available as an online course or a presenter-led, live training session.
This program focuses on prevention and not on defense. It is not possible nor advisable to teach people to fight a dog off or to use defensive weapons such as mace or other devices. These do not work and are likely to provoke an adverse reaction from the dog. The Doggone Smart at Work program teaches people to read dog body language, assess the risks of a situation in a logical manner and to act appropriately to prevent interactions with dogs on the job. We provide education not entertainment (although the program is fun and engaging, with lots of video and an interactive risk assessment segment).
When you choose the Be Doggone Smart at Work program you are not getting advice from just one person. You are getting the collective wisdom and experience of the Doggone Smart at Work experienced, trained presenters. Teresa Lewin is an internationally recognized leader in dog bite prevention through education.
