A Dog's Eye View For Dog Bite Prevention
Date:5/22/2009

Reports of dog bites by public health agencies have fallen to historic lows across the United States. Even the U.S. Postal Service has seen a nationwide decline in bites to its letter carriers, from over seven thousand in 1983, to less than three thousand five hundred in 2007.

Slanesville, WV (PRWEB) May 22, 2009 -- The National Canine Research Council says that when we see ourselves through our dog's eyes, the number of these already infrequent incidents will fall even further.
   

It is clear that our desire for companionship with dogs is strong. Dog ownership in America has increased significantly since the 1980's. The American Pet Products Association estimates that there are now 74+ million dogs in the United States. Forty percent of all American households have at least one dog living either inside the home or elsewhere on the premises. Household spending on pet products has continued to rise, according to the APPA, even during the current recession.
Dogs can give unconditional affection. They are safe to confide in and pleasing to the eye. They make us laugh and help us relax.
Do we do enough to support their adjustment to our busy lives?
"Often we do nothing, or we do inappropriate things," says Karen Delise, NCRC Director of Research. "We purchase or adopt a dog and expect them to automatically adjust to our chaotic life, while failing to recognize that dogs need guidance, attention and affection. Without our assistance our canine companions may have a difficult time meeting our expectations and can become stressed and confused"
