Kim Merritt

Five years ago, my sister, professional reward based dog trainer Jenn Merritt, CPDT-KA, and I founded Good Dog Enterprises. We developed a dog bite prevention curriculum for children called SAFE, to help decrease the number of children bitten each year by dogs. Today, our curriculum is used around the world by dog training professionals, veterinarians, and educators. Now our program has been redesigned for corporate use by businesses and organizations who allow dogs in the workplace or have employees who encounter dogs while on the job. Make Dogsurance dog bite prevention training part of your health and safety program for all employees.
