Yes! You CAN Avoid a Dog Bite!

With National Dog Bite Prevention Week upon us, it’s important to know HOW to avoid … even prevent … a dog bite.

According to the CDC, more than 4.7 million  people each year are bitten by dogs in the U.S. alone!

But, contrary to popular belief, dog bites rarely “come out of nowhere.”

The GOOD news (yes, there is some), most dog bites are avoidable when you understand WHEN dogs typically bite.

Keeping these scenarios in mind – and teaching children to respect a dog’s space especially during these times – will go a long way in preventing unnecessary dog bites and the potential for the dog to pay the ultimate price with its life.
