DOG BITES AND OUR CHILDREN

Dog Bites

Did you know that 4.5 million Americans each year are bitten by dogs. While some case are certainly more extreme than others, most are preventable. Boys are bitten more so than girls. And of those numbers, children under the age of 10 are bitten more frequently. Children who are bitten under the age of six tend to have much more serious injuries. To help prevent children from being bitten by dogs, teach them the following basic safety tips:

  • Do not approach an unfamiliar dog.
  • Do not scream near an unfamiliar dog.
  • Remain still when approached by an unfamiliar dog.
  • Avoid direct eye contact with any dog.
  • Do not pet a dog without allowing it to see and sniff you first.
  • Never attempt to pet or play with a dog while they are eating, sleeping or nursing a litter.

It is important to take the time to socialize your canine and educate your children on the proper way to approach a dog (no matter the size). These basic steps can help prevent your child from being injured and to keep your pet safe from any harm. Check out www.cdc.gov for other important safety tips about dog bite prevention. If you or a loved one find yourselves in need of a personal injury attorney for whatever reason please contact me, Paul @ 1-850-863-LAWS.

Please remember to support your local non-profit/non-kill shelters, like R.U.F.F. (Rescued Unwanted Furry Friends)
