The Statistics of Dog Bites in America
Dogs are a common and, almost expectantly, a pet in many homes within the United States. Many people have dogs for different reasons. Some have dogs to go hunting with, others have dogs to help children with learning or physical disabilities, and others have dogs simply as a companion. Many dogs enjoy being around people and receiving attention, but there are a few who do not. Dogs who are not socialized or who have not received behavioral training can cause issues with other dogs and can be a threat to people, depending on how aggressive the dog is. When dogs feel unsafe or unsure, they will bite to establish that they need space, and this bite can range from a nip at fingers to a hard bite. In the United States, dogs bite roughly 4.5 million people a year, which costs homeowners over $686 million in claims.
