How to Avoid Dog Bites
Dogs’ compassion, friendliness, and loyalty make them great family pets. Unfortunately, however, in some cases, if a dog becomes frightened or distressed in some way, it may lash out and bite someone nearby. When this happens, serious injuries can occur to those who have been bitten. In order to protect you and your family members against dog bites, the dog should be properly trained and you, as an owner, should learn how to best care for your dog so that it does not lash out aggressively.
Dog Bite Prevention
There are numerous ways to prevent dog bites, and in addition to establishing trust through respect and discipline, dog owners should:
- Respect personal space of the dog
- Avoid approaching unknown dogs
- Avoid petting a dog if you have not allowed it to see and sniff you first
- Refrain from aggravating a dog that is sleeping, eating, or focused on something else
These are just a few ways to avoid dog bites. If you or a loved one has been injured by another person’s aggressive animal, an experienced personal injury lawyer may be able to help you collect financial compensation for medical bills and other related expenses.
