Nearly half of all dog bites involve a dog owned by someone that the victim is close to, such as a family member or neighbor. Additionally, of the 4.5 million people who suffer from dog bites in the U.S. every year, over 50% of the victims are children. With the potential for danger right around the corner, it is of the utmost importance that all owners take the necessary precautions to control their dogs and educate their children on pet safety.
