Programme aims to stop dog bites on kids
We all have our fears, be it spiders, heights or dogs.
But that's because many were never taught how to approach a dog.
One couple is teaching tens of thousands of young children right from wrong, and they're in need of a bit of help themselves.
The programme has visited 1000 preschools over the past year, with 30,000 children learning right from wrong when it comes to canines. It's a great programme, free to all preschools.
Elspeth and husband Shaune set up the programme just over a year ago. They saw the need especially after a young Japanese girl was bitten more than 100 times in a dog attack last year.
The stats are alarming – there have been 99,000 dog bites in 10 years, and 5800 people requiring hospitalisation and surgery.
But now they need help too. They raised just $6000 last year to run the programme.
