Points to Remember

- Never go into someone else's yard to pat a dog.
- Never try to pat a dog that is chained up.

- Stand quietly with your arms at your sides.
- Do not shout at the dog.
- Do not wave your arms, grab at the dog or run away.
- If a dog looks frightened or angry, leave it alone.
- Do not look straight into the dog's eyes.
