Adults and children in New Jersey have the basic right to expect to be in public without being subjected to attacks from dogs. Still, there are times when dangerous or vicious dogs attack people and inflict potentially serious injuries from bites. What's particularly problematic about a dog bite is the risk of infection. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics estimates that infections result from about 10 to 15 percent of dog bites.
Dog bites cause serious injuries in New Jersey every year and can even lead to death in some cases. Across the United States, about 1 in every 775 people per year seek emergency care because of dog bites.
Having an obedient and socialized dog that lovingly greets and interacts with everyone it sees is the ultimate goal for any owner. A well-behaved dog can complete a family unit, and the companionship provided by a loyal, safe dog can have an incalculable impact on a family's happiness and positivity.
