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.

bought two of these

Searched for different ones, decided on this one. Exceeded all expectations. Bought one for a new care and another for our 2004 4 runner. Provides good protection for vehicle and our 140 dog. We travel and camp extensively also good for bringing thing back form garden shop.

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.
