By Jeane Flaten PARK RIVER, N.D. -- Would your dog at- tack? The American Veterinary Medical As- sociation estimates that more than 4.5 million dog bites are reported to local authorities each year. Countless more go unreported. Dog attacks can range from a relatively painless nip to a fatal mauling. Dog attack vic- tims account for up to 5 percent of all hospital emergency room visits. Children are most often the victims. Dog attacks are the most commonly reported childhood public health problem in the United States. You may feel confident that your dog won't add to these statistics, and it is probably true that your trusty companion will never seriously harm anyone. However, if your dog does at- tack or bite someone, you could be [able for the victim's pain, suffering, and medical ex- penses. Potential victims include your let- ter/rural carrier and neighborhood children. There are several ways you can avoid liability. Reducing the likelihood your dog will ever bite someone helps protect you, your canine com- panion, and everyone else in the community. Why Do Some Dogs Attack? Lack of socialization, improper training, ex- citement, and fear can all contribute to a dog attack. Even a nip on the leg is unacceptable behavior for a family dog. Three Suggestions to Help Take the Bite Out of Your Dog: Teach your dog appropriate behavior. Don't play aggressive gaines with your dog such as wrestling, tug of war, or siccing your dog on another person. It's essential that your t dog recognize members of your family as dominant figures not to be challenged. Be a responsible pet owner. For every- one's safety, don't allow your dog to roam. Make your pet a member of your family. Dogs that spend too much time tethered to a dog house or in the backyard have a much greater chance of developing aggressive behavioral problems. Stay on the sale side. Help your dog be- come accustomed to a variety of situations. If you think your dog could panic in a crowd, leave him or her at home. If your dog may overact to visitors or delivery people, keep him or her in another room. Editor's Note: Flaten is the Postmaster in Park River ability to live independently.
