Much Ado About "Aggressive Dog Breeds"

Recently, Pit Bulls have been receiving a lot of negative attention due to the perceived danger of the breed.  Whether you agree or disagree with this danger, the truth of the matter is that any type of dog breed can be harmful under the wrong circumstances.  Even your neighbor's toy poodle can cause serious damage under stress!

Dog Bite Claims Are Becoming More Expensive

According to an online insurance website, dog bites accounted for over 33% of all homeowners insurance liability claims last year.  The costs exceeded $530M nationwide, as noted in data from the Insurance Information Institute and State Farm insurance. Although the total number of dog bite claims decreased by about 5% from the previous year, the cost per claim rose by 15%.  From the years of 2003 to 2014, the cost per dog bite claim rose over 67% nationwide.  Last year, Pennsylvania had 861 reported dog bite claims, with each claim averaging about $26,000 for a total cost of over $22M for all reported PA claims.
