The week of May 17 to May 23 is National Dog Bite Prevention Week! With about 4.5 million Americans getting bitten by dogs each year, it’s a topic that deserves attention and thought. Especially when you discover around half our children are bitten by dogs before age 12.
Dog bites are largely preventable. By training your dog properly, using common sense around dogs, teaching children to respect dogs (and all animals), and teaching them safety rules, we can all help reduce the number of bites, and I mean all of us, not just dog owners, have a responsibility. Sites like Doggone Safe and other organisations will be running programs for you to learn more, so keep you eyes peeled.
