Dog Bite Prevention Week

70 million nice dogs…but any dog can bite

National Dog Bite Prevention Week widgetsNational Dog Bite Prevention Week takes place during the third full week of May each year, and focuses on educating people about preventing dog bites. 

With an estimated population of 70 million dogs living in U.S. households, millions of people – most of them children – are bitten by dogs every year. The majority of these bites, if not all, are preventable.

Take this opportunity to learn more about dog bite prevention and help educate others so we can all work together to prevent dog bites.
