Even good dogs bite.  Know the warning signs.

All dogs, regardless of size or breed, are capable of biting. But through their behaviour, dogs will often warn before they bite. Learning the warning signs and how to approach a dog safely will help prevent many of these bites from happening.

Pet owners are responsible for controlling their dog at all times - even in off-leash dog parks.

A dog will almost always warn through body language that they are beginning to get anxious and uncomfortable and may bite. These early warning signs mean we should STOP what we’re doing. These are commonly called ‘calming signals’.
