How to avoid dog bites
Most dog bites occur in the home. More than likely, your four-legged best friend doesn’t mean to hurt you, but might get carried away during playtime and accidentally nip you. Other dogs, especially small ones, will nip at you for attention, and puppies may use you for teething. Here are some tips for reducing the chances of getting bitten.
When Dogs Attack
You may have heard the news about a 63 year-old woman who was mauled to death by four dogs in Palmdale, California, when she was jogging. While most such incidents don’t end as tragically, joggers, runners, bicyclists and others know all too well the problem of suddenly being pursued, snapped at, or bitten by a loose, aggressive dog.
The best way to prevent such attacks, obviously, is for the owner to train their dog not to do it in the first place, and to always make sure their dog is in a secure yard, inside the house, or on a leash. Unfortunately, some people are not responsible enough to do this, so it falls upon us to know how to protect ourselves in such situations.
Puppy Biting - Nip It In The Bud
Biting or nipping is normal behavior for your puppy. Your puppy is learning what he is capable of, and how his behavior affects those around him. It is best to address puppy biting as early as possible.
When (several) dogs attack...
Having an encounter with one aggressive dog while you’re out is bad enough, and worse if that dog attacks your own. But what do you do if more than one aggressive dog go after you or your dog?
Protecting children from dog bites
It is estimated that over 4 million people are bitten by dogs yearly (1). Nearly 800,000 of these injuries require hospital visits, and close to one half of these patients are children. Although most people are treated in the emergency department and sent home, there are a few unfortunate people who require inpatient hospital stays and reconstructive surgery. The majority of these patients are children. The tragedy is that these injuries can be prevented with proper education.
