Tips to Prevent a Dog Bite: Common Areas for Bite Injuries

Tips to Prevent a Dog Bite

Dogs are social creatures. Enough for them to earn the title of “man’s best friend.” Most of us consider our dogs as part of our family, and they are always happy to return the favor by keeping our homes safe from strangers in times of our absence. However, one fact that we should never forget is that they are still animals and at times an animal can become wild and aggressive due to a variety of reasons.

Regardless of the breed, there is a list of causes as to why dogs exhibit aggressive behavior. These causes can range from unpleasant moods, illness, and fear. Sometimes dogs show some signs of anger just for the reason of showing dominance. While it can be normal at times, dog aggression can pose a lot of problems, especially to other people.

In the United States, 1000 people are sent to the emergency rooms each day due to dog bite injuries amounting to 9,500 recorded cases annually. While it’s not that much of a significant number, you will never know when it could happen. In these kinds of situations, prevention is still the best cure.

  1. When you play with your dog, let him mouth on your hands. Continue play until he bites especially hard. When he does, immediately give a high-pitched yelp, as if you’re hurt, and let your hand go limp. This should startle your dog and cause him to stop mouthing you, at least momentarily.

    • “At least momentarily” being the keywords here. Having had to deal with puppy shark teeth for the past 7 months, I can attest to that. Luckily, at least, I don’t have snakes to sorry about where I live. Thanks for your boots reviews, though. All the best!
