17 Tips That'll Safeguard You and Your Family From Dog Bites

By: Robin Shortt
Did you know that more than one million
north americans will be bitten by dogs
this year, and about one million dog bites
will go unreported.

Its sad but most of the victims will be children.
These dog bites will come from animals known
to them. Unleashed dogs will account for most
of the bites inflicted.



What Makes Dogs Bite


Not being educated and pet owners not being
committed on training their pet is what leads
to most of these dog bites. We must realize
that dogs don't normally become a part of our
families already trained.


Why Then Do Dogs Bite?


1.They will bite if scared, angry, or threatened.
Even a dog thats friendly will bite.


2.If he feels he's cornered or crowded.


3.They will protect what they think belongs to them.
Like their food, toys.


4.Dogs will protect their space such as sleeping area,
yard, porch, cars and home.


5.Dogs are predatory by nature and love to chase
and attack.


6.A stray dog may feel upset being lost or hurt and
bite with alot less provocation.


7.A dog being startled may lash out and bite.


How to Prevent Bites


8.Teaching young children to be careful around pets.
Don't allow children to play rough or allow pupies to
bite. Not even play biting.


9.Teach your children never get close to strange dogs.


10.Leave a dogs things alone like food, toys, bones,
ect.


11.Most injuries are caused by getting too close to a
dogs face with your own.


12.Refain from running past a dog. They love to chase.
Avoid getting a dog excited or aggressive, by yelling
and screaming.


13.You never want to pet a dog thats eating, sleeping
or careing for its puppies.


14.Stay away from dogs that are tied up or in cars.


15.You should always ask permission from a pet owner
to pet his dog. Even if he's present and the dog's on
a leash.


16.Refrain from swinging your arms or things you have
at a dog. It may think its an invitation to bite.


17.You should never pet stray dogs or ones running loose.


Its great to have a dog go on a hike or walk on a trail
with you but we humans need to treat dogs with respect.
Just remember to teach your children how act around dogs,
it will keep them safe.
