The importance of this topic cannot be stressed enough. Dogs’ lives depend on our understanding of their hardwired survival needs. A dog who bites other dogs or people often loses his or her life, regardless of the human misbehavior involved or the situation the dog was forced into. I hope you will visit and read the full blog on its home site, No Dog About It.
We have a family story on this topic of dogs biting children. Saving dogs’ lives means saving children’s lives and their faces, too. I know because a neighbors’ dog bit our five-year-old on the face and sent us all to the ER for hours. If the bite had been a few inches to either side, our daughter’s eye or nose could have been damaged beyond repair. I promise to write up this event for you next week.
