On 17 June 2014 the NSW government announced that funding of its Responsible Pet Ownership Education Program had been boosted allowing the Program to be expanded to pre-schools. The Primary school version of the Program has been in operation throughout NSW for the past three years. During this time the Program has delivered 2711 primary school visits to 282,445 kinder to grade two students and continues to grow each year.
The Living Safely with Dogs Preschool Program will be offered free of charge as part of the NSW Government’s on-going commitment to Responsible Pet Ownership. Places are limited. This Program has also been operating successfully in the Victorian preschool system for the past ten years. During this time this non-mandated program has grown to the stage where approximately 90% of the State’s 4 year olds experienced the Program in the last year alone.Download More Information
