Owning a dog provides companionship, entertainment, and unconditional love, but it can also lead to dangerous situations if you don’t understand your dog’s behavior. Even gentle, friendly dogs can attack if they feel protective, threatened, or scared. One way to help prevent dog bites is learning how to prevent the most common scenarios that lead to dog bite injuries in the first place.
As this video explains, the rate of dog bite injuries in the United States nearly doubled between 1993 and 2008. Leaving a child unattended with a dog and running with a dog are among the most common scenarios in which dog bites occur. For this reason, parents need to take extra steps toward teaching their children about safely interacting with a dog.
