Yes Dogs Bite

They say that there are about some fifty to sixty million dogs here in America, now if you add up the worldwide I couldn’t even imagine how many are out there.
I wonder how many are homeless or stuff in some animal shelter.

So just alone in the USA there is around eight hundred thousand people that get bit by a dog and most of them are little kids.

Some of the reasons are because a little child will wander in a neighbors yard seeing a dog that looks pretty in a child’s eye.
Did you ever try and pet a dog in a car? A I know most of the time the dog will try and take your arm off.

Another good approach is to put your hand out and let him smell the top of your hand first, but always remember not to look straight into his eyes. If he is waving his tail that is a good sign that he is friendly.
And don’t wave your arms and attempt to grab a dog and even if he looks a little mean just walk away. Remember we only get one set of hands and a bite made on the face will be with you a long time.

I personally watch out for these type dogs that can be very vicious:
  • Pit Bull
  • .
  • Doberman Pinchers
  • .
  • Rottweiler
  • .
  • German Shepherd
  • .
  • Husky
  • .
  • Chow Chow
  • So be careful and remember that there are a lot of dogs that are trained to protect their master.
