Young kids don’t understand the behavior of animals. They don’t even that their actions may provoke dogs. There are times that kids are trying to interact with the dog by holding them. That is why kids tend to be a common victim of dog bite attacks than adults.

Pet Owners Are Accountable


There are different reasons why a dog may bite a person. It could be because the dog felt threatened and just being defensive. Physical or psychological stress could be another reason. Or there are times that dogs are just playing around but accidentally bit harder. Children are the common victims because they are unaware of the behavior of the dog. Regardless of these reasons, pet owners should be responsible for controlling and taking care of their pets at all times.

Pet owners usually say that their dogs would never attack and just bite anyone. In reality, animals are unpredictable, even our most behave pet dogs. Pet owners should take all the precautions in avoiding such situations. They must ensure that their dogs will not be able to hurt other people around them.
