We had the opportunity in June to visit Murphy Elemetary School, with our Aussie, Gibson, several different times to speak with various classes about Pet Safety, Dog Bite Prevention, Facts About Chaining a Dog and other subjects that children need to learn. It’s always a wonderful opportunity to help the teachers and students learn about positive reinforcement. The children love having the opportunity to practice petting Gibson and the chance to interact with a dog in their classroom!
