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.

So this week , take the time to sit down with your family/children and talk to them about respect and prevention when it comes to pets. Have you talked to your kids about dog bite prevention? Share with us in the comments! Bottom banner 2 copy

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.

New truck seat cover and side panels

I really do like the seat cover and door side panels. The side panels are a must as the Beagle mix puts her feet on the doors. Every now and again someone comes up with a nice product that works well, has quality in its materials, and is well engineered. These are those. I am super satisfied.

Great fit, Great look, Stays in Place

I really like the look of this cover on my front bucket seat. You can't tell it's to protect the seat from the dog! It's very nice looking and fits great. Most importantly, it stays in place! My dog is wiggly, up and down, looking out the windows; and this seat cover doesn't mind. Do make sure you watch the video and carefully follow the installation instructions. I did not at first; and Support was Wonderful in helping me figure out what I was doing incorrectly.

Good Fit Good Customer Service

Great coverage on the back seat fitted no hammock cover. Easy to brush off collected debris. Overall it helps with keeping the car clean. The best option for me would have been the full cargo with a slit to allow for a seat belt but what we have works for us tool

Bucket Cover

This is THE BEST cover ever! Fits great! Love the headrest strap with the buckle. Rating of 99%! Because of my seat belts I can’t use the back strap. If that strap had a buckle it would be a perfect 100%! But it still is the best cover I ever purchased!!
