Dogs are an important part of our lives. We grow up with them on television, some with Lassie, some with Turner and Hooch and still others raising this generation with Paw Patrol. We have them in our homes or encounter them at parks or on walks. In most experiences, the encounter is a positive or neutral one. In some, the encounter may be aggressive and could turn into an attack that results in injuries. In New York City alone, there are an estimated 4,000 dog bites every single year. Boys between the ages of 5 and 12 are statistically most likely to be bitten, but anyone can be a victim.
