How to Prevent Dog Bites


How to Prevent Dog Bites featured imageAs a dog owner in Ohio, there are several things you can do to prevent dog bites while following state laws.

To prevent a dog bite, it is important to stay still and calm if approached by an unfamiliar dog. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends avoiding direct eye contact, loud noises, or running, as these actions can provoke the dog. Instead, say “no” or “go home” in a firm, deep voice, and stand with the side of your body facing the dog. Slowly raise your hands to your neck with your elbows in and wait for the dog to pass or slowly back away.
