DOG BITE PREVENTION
Any dog will bite given sufficient provocation.
Most dog bites are preventable.
Most dog bites occur to children.
Most dogs do not bite because they are trying to injure; rather, they bite because their signals have not been understood or respected by their family.
As a former pediatric ophthalmologist, I have seen too many cases of preventable dog bites that occurred to children, resulting in unfortunate consequences for both the child and the dog. If your dog has a bite history, seems to growl or be grouchy without warning, or if your dog interacts with children (your own or others), I recommend a session to go over strategies on how to keep everyone safe.
