Dogs remain great companions and add a huge amount of joy to the lives of individuals and families today. Despite all the tail wagging and kisses, dogs still require training and supervision in order to ensure the safety of those around them.
Unfortunately, too many dog owners fail to take the necessary safeguards to protect innocent people from the actions of their dogs. Statistics show that dog bites are one of the most common types of personal injury cases.
Did you know that more than 200 dogs that are declared dangerous, extremely dangers or vicious live with their owners? These dogs got these designations because they were involved in aggressive acts that resulted in injury to a person.
It is important to keep your dog under control. The following are some helpful hints:
- Don't play tug-of-war unless you always win
- Teach your dog to release the toy when you are playing
- Don't let your dog show its teeth or growl during play
- Don't be inconsistent
