What Is A "Dangerous Dog" And Why Should You Be Concerned About Your Pet'S Safety? The Dog Owner'S Association Of North Carolina Shares The Answers To These Questions

The law has a specific definition for "danger dog". It depends on where you live. In the United States, there are only a few places that consider every "pit bull" to be dangerous. What exactly would you consider a "danger threat" worthy of a danger label? A smart dog owner realizes that the silent dog with a lowered head, showing the whites of its eyes and stiffly wagging its tail is sending a clear message. Approaching this dog provokes an attack. Breeds responsible for dog bite fatalities have varied over time. The more popular the breed, the greater the contact with larger numbers of people. Poor breeding typical of increased demand is a cause of many dog bite and attacks. Since 1975, dogs from more than 30 breeds have been responsible for fatal attacks on people. This includes the "gentle" breeds like Labrador retriever, West Highland terrier, and Cocker Spaniel. Well-socialized, emotionally and physically healthy dogs know how to protect themselves. .
