Hastings & Hastings, defenders of the rights of accident victims, are equally dedicated to the mission of accident prevention. To that end, Hastings & Hastings speaks on the importance of owner responsibility in dog bite prevention.
Hastings and Hastings strongly encourage that dog owners spay or neuter pets. The Human Society has reported that this simple step can reduce the risk of dog bites by as much as 60 percent.
After spaying and neutering the next precaution dog owners should take is to engage their pet in behavioral training. The golden window for training is between eight and ten weeks. At this age dogs are at their most receptive, they can learn and adapt to behaviors quickly. With regular reinforcement proper training can last a lifetime.
Hastings & Hastings further notes that negative behavioral reinforcement can have a lasting impact as well. Harsh and physical punishment can condition a dog to act with aggression and fear, the two emotions which typically lead to dog bites. The Human Society ask that dog owners avoid harsh training techniques that may involve items like shock collars, chokers, or pronged collars.
"Training is, of course, an important aspect of dog bite prevention. But just as important as training is proper supervision. Dog owners must be attentive when they are out in public. Even a well-trained dog can become overwhelmed. We have seen it happen before. Take care of your pets and shower them with love. Keep an eye on them as well and there should be no reason to worry," said David Hastings, the founder of Hastings & Hastings.
