Continuing yesterday’s article about dog bite attacks across the country, we will refer to the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC’s) website relating to dog bites and attacks. Please view the original webpage by clicking this link. Some of the information provided by the CDC relates to helping children interact with dogs, especially since children are one of the most vulnerable populations for dog attacks. Some tips for children/dog interaction include 1) cautioning the child to be very still when approaching an unfamiliar dog, 2) if the child is knocked over by a dog, they should roll into a ball and remain very still, and 3) avoid direct eye contact with the dog.
