Promoting safe fun for dogs and kids

Language is no barrier to promoting safe and enjoyable interactions between children and dogs following the translation of The Royal Children’s Hospital Safety Centre’s Dogs and Kids resources into six major community languages.

The Dogs and Kids program began in 1997 as one of the first Australia initiatives to specifically address dog-bite injuries to small children by promoting dog bite prevention and socially responsible dog ownership.

The program has evolved to include a web-based resource and a free downloadable flyer with key safety messages.
You can download and print the English version of the Dog bite prevention poster (PDF) to promote dog safety at your workplace or home, or access the translated Vietnamese, Mandarin, Arabic, Cantonese, Punjabi, and Hindi versions here.
