Preventing A Connecticut Dog Bite Injury While Walking Your Dog
Dog bites are more likely to occur when the weather is nice and mild as many dog owners take their dogs along with them to do outdoor activities. This increases the likelihood that the dog will be exposed to people and other dogs that it does not know along with new and unfamiliar places. These factors easily set the stage for a Connecticut dog bite incident to occur.
Dogs show their stress in their behavior by licking their lips, pulling back ears, whites of the eyes showing, growling/barking, turning their head/body away, stiff body and resisting following their owner’s commands.
Resulting injuries can be severe and have long term consequences. It is important to take certain precautions while out and about with your dog in order to keep both yourself and your dog safe. If you have been injured by a dog bite, contact an experienced attorney, like those at McEnery Price Messey & Sullivan.
