How Attacks Happen
We realize that many dog bites and attacks are nobody’s fault. When people and animals congregate, there will be occasions when unintended bites occur. However, we know there are times when a dog’s owner contributes to an incident due to their actions or inaction.
It is vitally important that owners of aggressive dogs do not allow their pets to be around other people or animals. In many dog attack cases, it is discovered that the offending dog and owner have been cited before for similar incidents.
Other causes of dog bites and attacks include owners letting their dogs off their leash despite it being against the law. This is irresponsible behavior. Even calm dogs can find themselves in situations where they will attack, situations they may not have been in had they been leashed and with their owner.
Finally, dog owners need to take steps to keep their pets secure on their property, whether this is inside of a fence, in the home, or in another type of enclosure. If an owner neglects to do this, the dog could escape and roam freely.
More than 36 percent of households have at least one dog in the United States. Did you know that:
