Be pet smart

The Be Pet Smart program is a free, fun and interactive learning experience. The program is available to all Logan education facilities and community groups. The program is best suited to children aged 3 - 12 years of age.

We are committed to educating the community about:

  • responsible pet ownership
  • Council's animal keeping local laws
  • the impact of pets on the environment
  • the difference between an assistance dog and a pet
  • reducing the number of dog attacks, particularly on children.

Be Pet Smart has strong links with the Australian Curriculum. The program acknowledges the importance of education between the home and school.

Be Pet Smart teaches participants how to:

  • look after a pet
  • identify and read a dog's body language
  • interact and behave safely around dogs
  • what to do if approached by an aggressive dog.

Each participant will receive a Be Pet Smart Activity Book (children must take part in the program to receive a copy of the Activity Book).

We also provide a Teachers' Resource Guide for each class or group booked. A live education dog may attend the session (when available).

2021 bookings now open!

COVID restrictions permitting, we will be recommencing Be Pet Smart visits from Term 2 (April 2021). Please email us for a booking form.

Woof, Peppy and Jacky can't wait to meet you!
