People all around the world love dogs because of the unwavering loyalty and unconditional love that they offer. Dogs are friendly companions for millions of people, but this doesn’t mean that there isn’t a large population of people who aren’t fans of them. Dogs aren’t always friendly; 4.5 million people in the United States suffer every year from dog bites, and young children are usually the ones that suffer the most. Dogs will fall back on their natural instincts if they find themselves in a new or frightening situation.
Yes, a vast swath of dogs are faithful friends, but there are plenty of others who just aren’t wired that way. This is why individuals must be educated on how to handle a situation involving a cantankerous canine. Atlanta firm Van Sant Law has provided an easy-to-follow infographic talking about the many reasons why a dog may turn aggressive while also teaching what can be done to prevent bites from happening in the first place.
