AMMRIC recognises that whether you’re in community to live, work or visit, it’s helpful to have the skills to manage interactions with free roaming dogs so you feel confident and safe. These videos discuss dog behaviour and body language, and how to recognise the danger signs and avoid getting bitten. They use useful case studies and examples to help you feel more confident in your interactions with dogs in remote Australian communities.
We also have a limited number of DVDs available, please contact us if you would prefer a copy that can be viewed offline. AMRRIC wishes to thank the Northern Territory Government for funding the Staying Safe Around Dogs DVD.
