Dog Bites Can Be Prevented with Better Education

Kids love dogs. But kids also suffer the most dog bites.

The old saying “dogs are a man’s best friend” might be news to the more than four million people bitten each year, most often children and the elderly. Some of these attacks result in emergency room injuries, reconstructive surgery and – for 39 people in 2013 – death.

Of course, no one is disputing the deep companionship and loyalty dogs provide to millions of Americans. But safety advocates and dog experts say more can be done to prevent dog bites. You should know how you or your children can avoid dog bites, your responsibilities as a dog owner and your rights if you or someone close has suffered a dog bite injury.
