Children often times are the unfortunate and sometimes tragic victims of dog bite injuries. Dog owners and parents should use their best efforts and judgment to take actions to prevent dog bite injuries from taking place. Various actions can be taken to prevent dog bites or reduce the incidents of dog bites. These actions include but are not limited to socializing the dog, training the dog, neutering the dog, obeying leash laws, and attending the health and nutritional needs of the dog. It should be kept in mind that dogs are animals and are, at times, unpredictable. As such, it is important for dog owners and parents to take all reasonable efforts to protect children when near a dog.
