Promoting Responsible Pet Ownership - Education Program

The NSW Government has three education programs targeting responsible pet ownership and safe pet interaction.

  1. ‘We Are Family' – targeting the child and pet relationship from pregnancy to preschool years.
  2. ‘Living Safely with Dogs’ – targeting 4 – 5 year old pre-school children.
  3. ‘Living Safely with Pets’ – targeting 5 – 8 year old primary school children.

The programs aim to educate parents and children about how to interact safely with pets.


Pet Town

  • Victor and Victoria’s Pet Town is an animated interactive tool for children based on the programs’ safety messages. A tablet version has also been developed and is available free in App stores.
