The We Are Family program is aimed at educating families with young children about living safely with pets, in particular dogs. It is available through hospitals with maternity services and Maternal Child Health Centres. The Living Safely with Dogs kindergarten program and the Living Safely with Pets primary school program complete the trilogy of programs provided by the Victorian State Government. Children in the 0-4 age bracket are at the greatest risk of dog bite injury requiring hospital treatment. These programs help families manage any potential risks ensuring that the child /pet relationship is not only a happy one but a safe one as well. Young children may also enjoy our animated Pet Town website www.pettown.vic.gov.au and Tablet App (available free of charge)
