    Teach kids to act like a tree or a rock

    Teach the child to stand or sit very still and quiet if a dog comes near. Running away may cause the dog to chase and attack.

    • "Stand like a tree". If standing, stay still and stare straight ahead, until the dog goes away.
    • "Curl up like a rock". If sitting or if knocked down, curl up on one side with a fist over each ear. Be as still as possible until the dog leaves.
    • Throw something as "bait" if the dog attacks, like a coat or backpack.
