Dog Bite Dangers:
1. Regardless of whether your dog was the bitten or the biter, you and the other dog guardian are equally responsible for the incident. Stay calm, mature, and rational–dogs are very adept at reading your body language. Your dog will take his cues from you, so don’t get riled up.
3. Check to make sure there are no puncture wounds. If there are, get the injured dog(s) to the vet immediately–those wounds can easily become infected if not treated right away.
4. Exchange contact information with the other dog guardian.
5. Collect contact information from witnesses who saw the incident take place.
6. Know the laws. In some states the guardian of a dog who bites a person may be held liable for civil damages. For more information, visit DogBiteLaw.com.
