I read this article and thought what a great idea.

There’s a Youth Canine Education program, presented by Paws with a Cause, that teaches kids to respect and not fear dogs.

Sebring,FL: The program teaches kids to respect and not fear dogs. Through Duke and Flash, students learned the proper way to approach a dog, how to recognize an unhappy dog and when not to go near one.

“We help them to appreciate animals — whether dogs or cats,” said Fiorito. “We show them how to care for dogs, how to approach dogs and other life-long lessons.”

The program consists of a two week canine education instruction course. Once completed the students receive a “Certificate of Achievement,” along with pictures of the training dogs.

Useman likes to give out a sheet that details a “dog’s promise” and “our promise.”

A dog promises to bring unconditional love, companionship and protection, the sheet reminds students.

And the owner’s promise to his pet? Love and care, including, clean water and food; clean, dry and cool living and sleeping areas; regular washing and grooming, exercises and training; and medical attention when needed.

The promise sheet ends with an advice that many good dog owners probably know: And a little more love for their pets.

What a great way to teach kids the importance of being kind to animals and how special they are. The non-profit team regularly visits youth groups, schools, churches and daycare centers. Useman never charges a fee, and operates purely on donations.

To schedule a seminar, or to donate toward the cause, call Useman at 863-382-2728.
