Follow Elle's way to say "HELLO". A method that is tried, tested and approved by countless children, adults and dogs of all types too!
Pause in place and remember to be respectful of space.
Ask permission because a meet/greet can be allowed or denied
(do not disturb canines in training or K9s in service work).
Wait and watch for behavior/body language that invites an interaction.
Safely interact - stay calm, be gentle and pay attention at all times.
Sign up your classroom for a PAWS Community demo. A perfect lesson for students about safety and the canine/human bond.
Elle's PAWS ED Programs
for Community, Family, Therapy, and Team is a part of the
