B-More Dog is committed to providing free humane education programs to schools, after-school programs and summer camps.
B-More Dog's humane education program for children focuses on kindness to animals, meeting pets' basic needs, how to safely meet a new dog, and safety tips for when a child is approached by an unknown stray dog. Part of the curriculum allows children to practice meeting a dog by utilizing the techniques we teach to greet Ruby-Doo, a therapy dog who happens to be a pit bull. Our experience from dozens of outreach events has demonstrated that a significant number of children in Baltimore City schools are afraid of dogs in general, and they seem especially afraid of pit bull-type dogs. Ruby helps dispel stereotypes by literally "smooching" away many children's fear of meeting a pit bull.
