We love dogs.
We don’t love irresponsible owners.
According to a study from the CDC, approximately 4.7 million dog bites occur in the United States each year, and 800,000 of those bites result in medical care. The U.S. population is approximately 325.7 million people as of 2017. That means a dog bites 1 out of every 69 people.
Most dog bites involve dogs who are not spayed or neutered. It’s important to not encourage your dog to play aggressively.
Remember that any dog can bite, no matter how well-trained it may be. So it is always a good idea to be a responsible dog owner and make sure pets are supervised at all times with others.
