After a dog bite – and tips to prevent it

Some tips to prevent Dog Bites.

One; Do not tether a dog (dogs should not be tethered in a public access way; laws vary state to state so check with your local council).

Two; Always keep a close eye when dogs and children are together. Don’t become complacent.Dog Bite

Three; Never approach a tethered dog unless it is your own, and find better ways of keeping your dog under control; training or using a crate are better methods in most situations.

This is the same for dogs on their beds; if you don’t know the dog then leave it be if it’s on its bed! It will come to you if its wants to be petted.

Four; Socialise your dog & teach bite inhibition as a puppy (learn more about socialisation).

Five; Sit down with your children or go out to the park or training ground and talk about what they should or shouldn’t do when around dogs.
