1. NEVER EVER leave a child alone with a dog of any breed, of any size or any pet. An unsupervised child and dog is a recipe for a disaster to happen.  Children and pets need to be supervised by an adult.  Just as you would never leave a child alone with a lion, tiger or bear, or a LOADED GUN, DO NOT leave your child alone with a pet animal.

2.  Spay/neuter your pets for numerous reasons. In regards to dog bites/attacks, unfixed male dogs have been known to bite/attack more often than unfixed dogs and females that are not fixed who may have babies also have been known to bite/attack. A female who is protecting her puppies may attack anyone who goes near her babies.

3. DO NOT leave your dog chained up outside 24/7. If your dog is not socialized, left alone, and is not part of your family, they are more likely to bite/attack people and other animals.  If you want a guard dog for protection, then train the dog and socialize the dog so that they know the difference between friends and foes.

4. DO NOT allow your dogs to roam loose in the streets. They are also more likely to bite/attack strangers and they may also get run over by a car, or get stolen by criminals.

5. Learn dog body language to find out what the signals are that a dog gives out before he or she bites/attacks.

The best thing to do if a strange dog comes near you, your own dog is getting too frisky, or any dog is bothering you is to Be a Tree. Trees are boring to dogs and the dog will soon go away and leave you alone. Even if you are scared, it is important to stand very still and look at your feet. Never run from a dog! Here’s how to Be a Tree:
