Why The Little Dog Laughed?
The Little Dog Laughed has identified a powerful and perhaps surprising inflection point that with early intervention can improve the lives of children, pets, families, and society.
Uncomfortable Fact: Most perpetrators of domestic violence are also harming the family pets. One study reported that 48 percent to 71 percent of battered women reported that their pets had also been threatened, harmed, or killed by their partners. The most statistically reliable predictor for determining if a child will grow up to be a violent offender of any kind is witnessing animal abuse as a child. What a child sees he is likely to repeat. Early intervention is critical.
The Little Dog Laughed has a wealth of information on their site explaining all aspects of their terrific program. As a quick overview, here are some links to Frequently Asked Questions:
