A parent’s top priority is always the safety and well-being of their child. That’s why as a parent, or an adult or guardian, it is crucial to be aware of potential risks, especially when it comes to interactions with animals. As much as children love playing with furry friends, they are more likely to get bitten by dogs than adults. There are various reasons why children are more prone to dog attacks, from their size and vulnerability to their lack of understanding of a dog’s behavior. It is important that both parents and children understand the potential dangers a dog can present and make smart choices around animals.
