I'm very passionate about dogs and teaching others about them.
Tomorrow I am going to a local elementary school with one of my dogs to demonstrate how to greet dogs, along with how they should be treated, and body language.
Many people do not realize that most dog bites aren't out of fear, it's correction. A lot of dogs do not like to be hugged. They do not like kids bothering their food, or pulling their ears and tail.
No, children do not realize that. They need to be educated along with many adults. Supervision is also very good. Too many dogs are put to sleep or rehomed because of kids teasing it, resulting in a bite. Since kids are small, most bites are to the face.
There are dogs that do attack for no apparent reason, but they are not common! Media usually doesn't tell the whole story when It comes to dog bites..or anything, really.
This video should be shared as much as possible to help people understand dog bites.
