Free kids program on dog safety set for July 18

Teri Ann Tate, owner of Laveen-based Comfy Pets of AZ, and Amy Williams, a  dog and equine trainer with Mesa-based All 4 Paws Training, are teaming up to offer a free children’s program on dog safety at Cesar Chavez Library in Laveen.

The first Children’s Doggie Education and Care Program will take place from 3 to 4:30 p.m., Monday July 18th.

20160610_185215Tate says the fun and interactive clinic will teach children the proper way to approach a strange dog, how to do basic pet first aid, feeding and safety tips for caring for their dogs, how to read a dog’s body language and what to do when encountering a service dog.

“This has been a dream of mine for several years,” Tate said. “ I knew when I met Amy at the recent Pet Expo and her service dog, Nomi, that we would make a great team.”

The program is free to all children and their parents. Materials include a coloring book for the children to bring home.
