The Role of Dog Breed in Dog Bite Risk

There are many reasons for a dog to bite. They could feel protective of their owner or family, or feel threatened. Dogs who have been mistreated in the past could be more likely to bite in order to protect themselves, even if you mean no harm. Some say, dog breed plays a big role in dog bites, which in some cases is true, but mostly it comes down to the situation.

Will a Child Develop Fears After a Dog Bite?

Although dog bites can cause catastrophic injuries to a child, physical injuries are not the only pain that a child may suffer. Psychological issues are common in children who survive vicious animal attacks. 1 in 10 children who suffer a moderate dog bite injury will develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 1 in 4 children who suffer a severe dog bit injury will develop PTSD.
