Proper petiquette

As part of a Living Safely with Pets Primary School Program, St John’s School Kinder to Year 2 students had a visit from Elmo the dog and program facilitator Jackie Roper from the NSW Government Responsible Pet Program. The program educates children on what it means to be a responsible pet owner and how to live safely with dogs. Students were shown how to ask permission from an owner before touching a dog, safely approaching a dog and safely petting a dog.
