serious consequences for the
Preventing Dog Bites
at Home
1. Carefully consider your
dog selection. A puppy is a big
commitment, not an impulse buy.
2. Socialize your puppy.
Gradual exposure to other pets,
people and places increases
confidence and friendliness.
3. Wait until your child is
older. Dog bites tend to happen
to younger children. Consider
waiting until your child is at
least 4 years old before getting a
dog. Never leave a baby or child
alone with a dog.
4. Train your dog. Teach your
dog basic commands like “sit”,
“stay”, and “come.” Your dog will
have good manners, and it is a
great way to bond.
5. Keep your dog healthy.
Vaccinate your dog against rabies
and other diseases. Healthy dogs
are happy dogs. How a dog feels
is directly related to how he/she

caring for puppies, sleeping

3. If a dog approaches you
stay still and let him/her sniff
you. Most of the time, a dog will
leave you alone once they realize
you are not a threat.
4. If you are threatened by a
dog stay calm. Don’t scream,
avoid eye contact, and stay still
or slowly back away. Do not turn
and run.
5. If you fall or are knocked
down, curl into a ball. Cover
your head and neck and protect
your face.
