Dog bites were the topic of discussion in a podcast I did with Dr Vijay, a plastic surgeon specializing in pediatric reconstruction as a result of a dog bite.
One thing that stuck out in the interview was that it was seldom a wild or random dog that attacked a kid out of the blue. Dog bites are almost always a neighbor’s dog, or the grandparent’s dog etc.
This little dog in the video below is not “aggressive”. She’s shy and scared around new people and new dogs, and snaps at them. This video has about tips to help with snapping, as well as some tips on how to carry a small dog safely, especially children.
Children want to hug cute puppies like their teddy bear, putting their face next to the dogs face. This can be very dangerous and can quickly lead to dog bites. Puppies have sharp teeth and can react to fear very quickly. I hope this video is helpful.
