Description

Pets play an important role in child development. They promote the advancement of a range of social attributes in children, including companionship, nurturing, love, affection, responsibility, and respect. However, this human-animal bond can quickly dissolve if simple safety is not practiced. Current trends show that dog bites and fatalities are on the rise, especially in children.

Pets’ Playground: Playing Safe in a Dog-and-Cat World, meant for kids ages four to nine, provides the necessary skills and knowledge to promote safety for both children and their pets while strengthening the human-animal bond.

This 104-page resource is an incredibly fun and educational children’s book that includes 18 diverse activities. Leave a copy in your waiting room for children or make photocopies of the activities to use again and again.

“Written by a veterinarian, this is a colorful guide and workbook that teaches kids how to best care for a pet cat or dog. . . . A useful tool for helping children develop a happy and learning relationship with a pet.”
ForeWord Magazine

Pets' Playground is a practical, complete, kid-accessible manual of responsible safety practices for care and fun with pet cats and dogs. . . . [It] should be required reading for all families who own pets, whether they have kids or not.” 
The Midwest Book Review
