Dogs play a very special role for children: In dealing with them, they learn responsibility, care, friendship and consideration. But the right behavior when dealing with the dog has to be learned. The VDH has published the brochure “12 Rules for Handling Dogs” for this purpose. The golden rules are therefore:
In the brochure, each rule is illustrated in color and explained in detail. There is also a task for each rule, e.g. describing, drawing, connecting, ticking and instructions for small role-playing games with a partner. They encourage you to deal with your own previous knowledge and feelings and offer good opportunities for discussion in the group. Self-activity includes self-control – at the end of the exercise book the children can therefore test what they have learned in a large dog quiz.
You can download the brochure free of charge from the VDH website or directly here.
