Dog Bites Archives
Dogs are commonly referred to as man’s best friend, but sometimes their human counter parts aren’t always doing what is right for their pooch. When someone refuses or neglects to properly train their dog or worse yet, they abuse their poor pup, this can lead to a public safety concern.
More than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs annually In the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Additionally, the CDC found that 300 fatalities were the result of dog attacks from 1979 to 1996. While dog attacks may be unanticipated, behavior experts have stated there is always some sort of trigger or cause. This is why responsible dog ownership is a necessity and training is an absolute must.
