Don't raise a biting pet

Children can be bitten by the family pet.

  • Train your dog in basic obedience. Contact a training specialist or get a book about dog training at the library or bookstore.
  • A pet that has been spayed or neutered is three times less likely to bite than one that has not. Contact a veterinarian to have your pet spayed or neutered.
  • Dogs that are permanently chained up are notoriously aggressive and prone to bite.
