Mrs. Winikoff, above, checks to see if, from left, Steven Nar, 3, Gabriel Rivera, 3 and Christopher Rattiger, 4, can stay still if a dog came to check them out.

Janet Winikoff, director of education at the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County, paid a visit to Operation Hope on Friday to teach the children in their kindergarten and pre-school classes about dog safety. The children were taught how to ask to pet a person's dog, how to stand like a tree if a dog runs at them and to lie like a log if knocked down. The students also enjoyed being read a book called, 'Don't lick my Dog.'
