Be a Tree Dog Gone Safe

The team at Lincoln Land Animal Clinic is taking a bite out of dog bite incidents!

All dogs have the potential to bite; even the sweet family dog can have a bad day. Our goal is to help educate owners and children and keep everyone safe- including the dog!

Dr. Colleen is a licensed "Be a tree" presenter, a program designed to help children learn how to be safe around dogs. If you are interested in having Dr. Colleen present at your school, organization, club, or group contact her at Lincoln Land Animal Clinic, ltd.

Did you know that most children are bitten by dogs their own dog or a dog that is familiar to them? Unfortunately the headlines sensationalize the less common bites and fail to educate owners, parents and children how to recognize a dog that may bite. 

Here are some excellent websites to help educate parents and children.
