Some dogs have a predisposition to act in an aggressive manner, but for the most part, dogs that act out have been brought up in an unhealthy atmosphere. Dogs need a lot of attention and love. They need to be trained and socialized. Without these things, they may become the cause of a Milwaukee dog bite.
As a dog owner, you should not only bring up the puppy in the correct ways but you should also avoid putting him in situations that will set him up for failure. It is your responsibility as an owner to not only keep him safe but also keep him from acting out.
Three steps you can take to keep from setting your dog up for failure are:
- Use caution in new situations. When introducing your dog to new situations, use caution. You will want to be ready to respond to any signs that your dog is starting to feel uncomfortable. If you see your dog is uncomfortable, remove him from the situation immediately.
- Stay away from threatening situations. You should never put your dog in situations where he could be threatened or teased. If you find yourself in a situation like this, keep your dog with you.
- Don’t play aggressively. Do not play games with your dog that involves aggressive behavior. Games like tug-of-war could encourage the dog to act in inappropriate behavior.
If you experience a dog who acts aggressively and attacks you, you may be entitled to compensation. To discuss your legal options, contact an experienced Milwaukee dog bite attorney at Hupy and Abraham. Call 800-800-5678 today for a free legal consultation.
