5 Tips to Prevent Dog Bites From Happening

Dog Bites? How to Avoid Your Dogs From Biting.Do you know how to read your dog's body language?

But what does it take to prevent dog bites from happening, and is it possible? Being a parent of both pets and hu-kids, I have learned to pick up on the subtle signs my dogs may be showing me when they begin to feel anxious or annoyed by my children. Today I would like to share some tips on helping your kids prevent dog bites - not just your own dogs, but dogs your children may encounter while outside playing or what have you. 5 Tips to Prevent Dog Bites From Happening1. Teach your child that if they see an off-leash dog, never to approach him/her. 2. Do not allow your children to interact with the dog while they are eating or  chewing a bone. 3. Your children should be taught that if the family dog is asleep, he/she needs to be left alone. 4. It is important for your child to understand it may not be safe to pet a dog who they are not familiar with. (ie: While outside playing or going for a walk, do not walk up to someone who is out walking their dog, and just start petting that dog.) Permission needs to be granted by the dogs owner, as well as the child's parents. Should permission be granted, the child should be taught how to properly approach a dog on a leash.

5. Children should be taught to respect a dog's space. The cold hard fact is that any dog can bite. A random dog, your neighbors dog, the family dog, any dog! As much as I know in my heart that my huskies would not bite my kids, the truth of it is, it could happen. Dogs can't tell us when they are being bothered, or having a bad day, which reinforces what I mentioned at the beginning of this post.

Dog Bites? How to Avoid Your Dogs From Biting.It is incredibly important to learn how to read your dog's behavior, and equally as important to teach kids and family members to learn the behavior as well, to prevent dog bites from happening.

Rear Bench Seat Cover

I have purchased several seat covers from area pet stores and have returned them. I love the one I got from 4Knines because it was easy to install, it's shaped just like the bench seat in my car, its nice looking and it doesn't slide around. I have a large dog and a medium sized dog and the cover stays put! Thanks, 4Knines!

Seat cover

We have 2 big dogs and an hour and a half trip to the lake house. The lab sheds black hair everywhere on the tan leather, the Goldendoodle but he has long nails and left little holes in the seat of the car I had before. Got the new car and immediately ordered your cover, it came in quickly, was easy to install and saved the new car lots of damage. Love it! Recommend it highly!

Very well made

Recently purchased the waterproof bed liner. Very happy with the quality workmanship and that the material is soft and doesn‰Ûªt make noise when shifting positions.
