Famed Hollywood Dog Trainer and Lassie Descendant Unleash National Dog Bite Prevention Week, May 14

Postal Service, American Veterinary Medical Assn., American Academy of Pediatrics, Unite to Prevent Dog Bites

WASHINGTON, May 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A famed Hollywood dog trainer and a descendant of one of the world's most popular dogs are teaming with the United States Postal Service and other partners to bring attention to a major campaign in America: Dog bite prevention.
