Dogs can be adorable pets and fun members of your family. Unfortunately, canine companions will still do things that are instinctive to them even if you've trained them not to. Some dogs will bite for no apparent reason at all, while others will snap if they feel threatened or scared in some way. Regardless, as a pet owner, it's your responsibility to guarantee that your pets are constantly contained so they cannot bite and/or injure a stranger. In America, medical attention is given to almost 800,000 people each year for dog bites. These incidents and the costs related to them may decrease if pet owners are more aware and responsible with their dogs.
