Dog owners can take steps to prevent bites

When you think of dogs, you probably think of a sweet, loyal pet. Dogs are treated like members of the family. They bring us comfort and joy. Dogs are entertaining and energetic. Dogs offer guidance and support when properly trained.

When dogs feel threatened or are not properly trained, they can also pose a risk. Nearly 10,000 people are hospitalized every year as a result of a dog bite induced injury. If your dog were to bite another person, you could be liable. If you are considering a dog for your family, you can do your part to keep your dog from injuring others.

Utilize training methods

Think about enrolling your dog in obedience training courses. Talk to your family about commands for your dog. You will want to make sure the family is consistent when working with the dog.

Common commands to consistently reference include:

  • Sit
  • Come
  • Down
  • Stay
  • Leave be

Consider precautions for walks

Choose the right collar for your dog. Always keep your dog on a leash when in public. You may consider a harness or head halter for your dog. These tools are helpful when training your dog. They may also assist you in controlling your dog. When in your own yard, have the proper equipment in place. If your yard is not fenced in, make sure the dog is properly restrained.

Make introductions

Be careful about allowing strangers to approach your dog. You will want to familiarize your pet with people in a manner that makes the dog feel safe. You will want to do the same with other animals as well. This may mean that you put your dog in another room when company comes to the door. Be consistent in how you introduce your dog to family, friends and strangers alike.
