All the factors that can lead or end up in the harmful and aggressive behavior of the dog should be kept in mind by the dog owners, grandparents and more particularly parents of the young children, caregivers, babysitters and teenagers to avoid such situations.

There are more possibilities of the occurrence of damaging attack of the dog or bite injury if these factors are present in large numbers.

For instance, if a dog is chained or leashed consistently for long time then there can be great chances that the dog may lack the skills to behave with the people or/and become aggressive.

It is not surprising that the possibility of showing aggressive tendency is found more in male dogs and the percentage of their attacks and bites of adults and children is higher as compared to female dogs.

According to some other evidences it has been established that the number of dog bites and attacks increases considerably in the warm environment of summer months because of the outdoor presence of dogs and people in larger numbers than other months.

Most common and disturbing single cause of serious harmful attacks of the dogs and their deadly bites is the reluctant behavior of their owner. The dogs usually bite or attack on adults and children because they were not properly cared, supervised and trained by their owners. Every dog owner should keep this fact on top of their mind.
