A DOG’S TRUST: Dog trainer is stepping up efforts to teach people about dog behaviour following some high-profile incidents
If you're a dog lover then you know what wonderful companions they are. However, there have been a few high profile cases of dog attacks in recent weeks. Last weekend, a 17-month-old boy was bitten on the leg by a dog in a park in Merseyside. It came after a 25-year-old woman died in Birmingham after an attack by a dog she had rescued.
Debby Lucken, a dog trainer and behaviourist, is the founder of Kids Around Dogs (KAD) which aims to help families overcome the hidden issues of adopting a dog such as overconfident children leaving pets stressed and anxious or youngsters who were petrified of animals. She's building a network of trainers across the country with twenty already signed up.
