The International Dog Bite Prevention Challenge is being held May 15-21 2011 worldwide. This event is an international effort to educate children on the importance of dog safety, and has been submitted for a world record attempt. Despite 12,000 years of living with dogs, they remain largely misunderstood by humans. When a dog bites we interpret this in human terms. In most cases the bite is a normal dog behavior. To prevent dog bites we need to understand what motivates the dog to bite and reduce risk through modification of both human and dog behavior. There are many great opportunities to become involved and make a difference in the lives of dogs and children around the world. All of our event details can be found at: http://www.doggonesafe.com
