There are around 12 million pet dogs in the UK. This guide from the Dogs Trust aims to support people who would like to build their own confidence around dogs, as well as ways to support children with this.Dogs Trust and Cambridgeshire Neighbourhood Watch understand not everyone is comfortable being around dogs and we know some people may be scared of them. This can impact both a child’s or adult’s life, from not wanting to go to the park or visit friends, to being worried about walking down the street in case they see a dog.
In the booklet linked below you will find handy tips and practical information that may help you to build confidence around dogs and stay safe when near them.
