Staying safe around dogs: part 1 & part 2
Alice Springs, NT: Animal Management in Rural and Remote Indigenous Communities

These two videos were produced to teach children and adults the skills to manage their interactions with free roaming dogs in rural and remote communities, so that they feel confident and safe.

The videos provide information on dog behaviour, dog body language, how to recognise the danger signs and how to avoid getting bitten.

The first video, Working with dogs, is for people who might encounter dogs during their work in remote communities. It includes information on: the importance of dogs; identifying dog behaviour; safety tips and stories; what to do if a dog attacks; and case studies from community workers.

The second video, Living with dogs, is for remote community residents. It includes information on: training dogs; looking after dogs; identifying dog behaviour; safety tips and stories; and what to do if a dog attacks.

The videos were produced by Animal Management in Rural and Remote Indigenous Communities.
