AAI: Puppy Socializations


When dogs are in the building:

  1. Never run at the dogs.
  2. Never crowd around the dogs; they need space for comfort.
  3. Ask permission before petting.
  4. Speak gently and quietly; yelling or screaming can frighten the puppies.
  5. Gently petting the puppies will be strongly encouraged but must be done one student at a time.
  6. Be kind.

A green ribbon will hang from the door notifying everyone when friendly puppies are present in the classrooms.
