Dogs Becoming Part of the Family: Dog Bite Injuries Decreasing
Date:5/19/2013

Amenia, NY (PRWEB) May 19, 2013

Americans live closer to their dogs than ever before. According to the newest American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) U.S. Pet Ownership and Demographics Sourcebook, more than two-thirds of American dog owners consider their dog a member of the family, up from the 53.5% of owners who had said as much five years earlier.

According to the American Pet Products Association, the total dollar value of the national income dedicated to pets has increased every year without interruption, including through the economic gale of The Great Recession. Americans spend money on what they care about.

At the same time, research is accumulating showing that family dogs who live as part of a human household are friendlier, easier to train, and less aggressive than those who have more distant relationships with people. By their very nature, dogs are predisposed to form close attachments with human beings, in the way that other social animals form attachments with members of their own species. Responsible dog owners afford their family dogs the opportunity to form these important attachments.

It is no surprise, then, that as owners’ attachment has grown, the number of dog bites reported has declined.

Strengthening attachment to dogs has been accompanied by a decline in dog bite-related injuries. In American cities, reports of dog bites to public health agencies have declined by as much as 90% since the 1970’s. In the ten-year period between 1993 and 2003, the annual rate of bites (per 100,000) to children fell by almost 50%.

The number of persons in the U.S. seeking medical attention for a dog bite has remained steady since the 1990’s, while the human and the canine population have both increased substantially. This shows that the rate of such injuries – per 100,000 persons and per 100,000 dogs – has declined.

Dogs are good for the family.
