HKPR health unit #YellowRibbonDog campaign says ‘some dogs need space’

Approximately 600 animal bites were reported to the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit in 2021. 70 percent of those were dog bites. The #YellowRibbonDog campaign has been brought in by the health unit, with the hopes of reducing the number of dog bite incidents, and taking stress away from dog owners. Richard Ovcharovich is the environmental health program manager with the health unit. Teresa Kaszuba connected with him to find out why some dogs just need space.
