Dog bites are likely to be from “resident” dogs. According to the National Canine Research Council or the NCRC, there are two types of dogs. Type one is the “family” dog. This is the pet that lives inside the home as one of the family members. It sleeps inside and considers itself to be one of the family. They are well socialized and used to behaving around humans. The “resident” dog, on the other hand, spends most of its time outside in the yard, has a doghouse, and has limited social interaction with other dogs or humans. They are usually housed for purposes of protection or breeding. Understanding that we are training our dogs to react a certain way, can help us avoid a majority of dog bites.
