Dog Bite Prevention Tips:

  • Do not approach a dog you do not know.
  • Always ask an owner’s permission before petting their dog. If they say it is OK, hold your hand out for the dog to sniff first.
  • Do not disturb a dog that is eating, sleeping, or caring for puppies. Do not take a toy or bone away from a dog.
  • Stay calm — talk in a quiet voice, don’t make sudden movements, and avoid direct eye contact.
