Dog Bite: Prevent or Deal with it
by Jack Russell

Statistics has it that 4.7 million people get bitten by dogs yearly. These bites range from minor nips to major attacks. Dog is man's best friend, not his worst enemy. To make it stay that way, here are some tips for you to stay away from being bitten by a dog.

How to Avoid being Bitten by A Dog

  1. Don't Approach a Strange Dog.
    It is a big no-no to go near just any dog you find adorable, particularly when that dog is tied or placed behind a fence or if it is in a car. A new or strange dog might think that you are threatening him or you are an intruder.
  2. Don't Just Pet A Dog.
    It is not advisable for anyone to suddenly just pet a dog, even his or her own dog, without letting him sniff and recognize you first.
  3. Don't Ever Turn Your Back to a Dog Just to Run Away
    This animal's instinct will dictate it chase and catch you. So, running away is not a good option.
  4. Don't Disturb a Dog.
    When a dog is sleeping, chewing on anything, caring for her puppies or eating, it is bad idea to shock or disturb it.

How to Bite-Proof Your Own Dog
