Dogs and Kids: National Dog Bite Prevention Week
National Dog Bite Prevention Week has closed but we wanted to share one more graphic to help broaden awareness to your dog, a neighbor's dog, any dog's physical queues when they are feeling uncomfortable. Such circumstances, and depending on what other stressors the dog may have been experiencing that day (check out this article), he or she may respond negatively to such contact and bite. Unfortunately little humans who just want to be close often are too close and receive the brunt of the dog going over its threshold to withstand such stressors. Understanding your dog's triggers and threshold and watching their body language is critical to preventing bites and having a happy dog.
