Approximately 1/2 of all children in the U.S. are bitten by a dog before they hit the teenage years. In many cases, teasing or an unintentional provocation, such as approaching a dog while its eating or sleeping, can lead to a dog bite or even worse, an attack. The vast majority of dog bites are from a dog that the child is acquainted with - his or her own, a neighbor's, or a friend's dog. Seventy nine percent of all fatal dog attacks are on children.
