Kids Dog Bite Prevention Video Transcript

Animated character of Johnny

Johnny calls to his Mom:

“Mom, can I go to Jacob’s house to play?”

Johnny’s Mom:

“Ok, but be home for dinner and have Jacob’s Mom text me when you get there.”

Johnny:

“OK Mom”

Johnny runs out of house and starts walking down the street to Jacob’s house whistling

Johnny walks by a neighbor’s house where the neighbor is planting flowers in his flower bed with his dog sitting next to him.

Johnny walks up to dog and leans over to pet it.

Music volume increases and becomes more prominent with the following lyrics:

“No Johnny, No Johnny, No No No ”

Voiceover with animated words on screen:

“Never pet a dog without asking the owner first”

Johnny:

“Mr. Wilson can I pet Daisy”

Mr. Wilson:

“Sure Johnny, thank you for asking me first. She will like that.”

Johnny pets dog, Daisy “smiles” and wags tail while Mr. Wilson watches.

Johnny continues walking down the sidewalk in his neighborhood whistling and sees a dog sleeping in a yard next to its dog house. Johnny tip-toes up to dog and leans over to pet it.

“No Johnny, No Johnny, No No No”

Voiceover with animated words on screen:

“Never surprise or disturb a dog! If a dog is sleeping or eating you could startle it and it could bite you!”

Johnny tips-toes backwards, does not disturb the dog and continues walking down the sidewalk whistling.

Johnny walks up to a fenced-in yard with a dog looking through the fence at Johnny.

Johnny starts to reach through the fence to pet the dog.

“No Johnny, No Johnny, No No No”

Voiceover with animated words on screen:

“Don’t reach through or over a fence to pet a dog. Dogs are protective of their territory and may bite you if they think you are invading their territory.

Johnny pulls back his arm before reaching through the fence and continues walking down the sidewalk whistling.

Johnny sees a dog running toward him and starts to run in the other direction.

“No Johnny, No Johnny, No No No”

“Don’t run away from a dog, it will most likely chase you and may try to bite. Instead, stop, stay still, remain calm and keep your arms and hands close to your body. Try to avoid direct eye contact with the dog and be quiet. Do not yell or scream. Let the dog sniff you and check you out. When the dog determines you are not a threat, it will probably just go away.”

Animation shows Johnny stopping; dog sniffs him and then runs off in the other direction.

Johnny continues walking down the sidewalk.

Arrives at Jacob’s house where Jacob’s sister is outside in the front yard playing with her dog.

As Johnny approaches the dog the dog becomes irritated (ears go flat, becomes stiff, eyes turn angry).

Jacob’s sister says:

It’s Ok Johnny, Buster won’t hurt you.

Johnny begins to walk towards Jacob’s house.

“No Johnny, No Johnny, No No No”

Voiceover with animated words on screen:

“Watch a dog’s body language. If it’s ears go flat, it becomes stiff and it seems as though the dog is going into an attack position, do not approach it.”

Johnny asks Jacob’s sister:

“Suzie, can you put Buster in the back yard so I can play with Jacob?”

Suzie replies:

“Sure Johnny. I’ll take Buster to the back yard.”

Johnny replies:

“Thank you Suzie.”

Jacob opens front door to greet Johnny and says “Hi Johnny! What took you so long to get here?”

Johnny turns to the viewer and shrugs his shoulders.

Video transitions from animation to real footage of child actor saying:

Each year over 4.5 million people in the United States are bitten by dogs and most of these people are kids like us!
