Through education of child, parent, dog owner and the public in general, dog-related accidents can be lessened greatly.
The Project is always being adapted and expanded. Presently, we cover children, dog owners, expectant/pre-adoptive families, field/delivery workers, and adults.
The Project can be adapted for various professions as well.

UPCOMING TALKS OR SCHEDULING TALKS
This project was developed ultimately because...
They are not Timmy and Lassie
Dear followers, it is with a heavy heart that I let you know D'Argo, the dog whom
I created the SK/SD Project around so he could have a job he was suited for went to the Rainbow Bridge on July 22, 2012. His cancer had spread and it was time to
say good bye while he still had dignity left. Seven is retiring as well. At this point I will be dogless in the program until I see if either of my younger guys can
fill these pawprints or the adolescent monster my daughter and mother co-own who will be coming to live with us in August will fit the bill. It takes a very
tolerant dog to handle what children and adults can dish out during talks. The Safe Kids/Safe Dogs Project will go on, just without D-man or the Beast. Ravyn's
daughter, Splash, is now living with us and I am hoping her personality will lend well to the Safe Kids/Safe Dogs Project. Over the next months you will see us
take on a new role as well - we will expand into feline safety! A door is closing but new ones are opening.
On October 2, 2010, we were on Dogs 101 when they highlighted the Shetland
Sheepdog. My son, Connor, who is Autism Spectrum was filmed working Foster. If you look, you can also see his younger sister, Sarah and Ravyn. You may see the clip here.
