Whether you have a dog or not, it is essential to know how to avoid a dog bite and to recognize signs that a dog is going to bite. Besides being painful, dog bites can cause viruses like rabies. Read on for some tips to avoid dog bites.
- For initial signs that a dog bite will occur, you should watch a dog’s body language. If a dog displays uneasiness, a stiff tail or is staring at you strongly, it could be on the edge of attacking. Generally, if the dog is uncomfortable with your company, there could be a chance it will bite.
- A common motive for a dog to attack is if they feel that someone is invading their space. It is important to resist the urge to pet since they’ll see this as you violating their space. Dogs can be extremely unpredictable, which can then cause bites at any moment.
- If you think a dog is going to bite you, remain calm. Getting nervous or screaming could make the situation worse. If you remain calm, chances are the dog will remain calm as well.
