More than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year in the United States according to the AVMA. Half of those bitten are children. Most dog bites are preventable and there are many things we can do to lessen the chances.

We are proud to offer an interactive dog-bite prevention presentation for our community youth. Our staff has been educating safety around pets to the local elementary and middle schools for over 15 years. We are honored to also have presented at the Minnesota Veterinary Conference.
In memory of our previous presenter pups……
Daisy was a perfect representative for dog safety. She loved the children and knew just what they needed. Daisy served our community youth for 3 years and touched many hearts.
Cooper was a happy-go-lucky boy who enjoyed his time visiting the kids. He was full of energy and loved his people and his toy ball more than anything. Cooper helped teach our community for 7 years and met thousands of smiling children.
Our current presenter pups…
- Another happy-go-lucky boy, Fred isn’t a typical dog. His dalmatian spots always attract the children and his happy face is always giving kisses.
- Graycee is a sweet, loving girl who loves her farm and family. She can always be seen wagging her tail and enjoying all the attention.
- Jack is a rough collie who loves running around his farm and receiving pets from kids. He is always in a good mood and loves everyone.
