What Makes A Dog Dangerous?
Sarah Wilson

Today, over 900 people in the US were sent to the emergency room because of a dog bite. Over half of those people are children under the age of ten. Most of the dogs who sent them there were family pets or a neighbor’s dog. Few people seem to understand what makes their dog a serious threat. Many people mistake avoiding the triggers for removing the danger. Not at all. There are three things that make a dog dangerous – any dog – any size. We’ll discuss those three things using case studies to discuss them in more detail.
