If your child is approached by an excitable dog, Jennifer Shryock, a recognized expert on child-dog interactions, says he shouldn't run.
Instead, Shryock tells me, he should stand like a tree.
Shryock talks about this very important safety tip in the video. She is the Cary mom of four who created Family Paws, a program that is now taught by 120 licensed presenters around the United States and Canada. She also is a vice president with Doggone Safe, which works to prevent dog bites through education.

Thank you so much Jennifer for sharing some great and important safety tips!
