TIP #1: PREVENT YOUR CHILD FROM BEING BITTEN
A dog can be frustrated through rough play or by teasing and a child can inadvertently inflict pain by sitting on a dog, or with the pull of a tail or a poke in the eye.
Help prevent dog bites by teaching your child to enjoy time with the family pet without these types of potentially dangerous interactions.

TIP #2: GIVE 'EM A BREAK
What should you do when your dog overreacts to something? One thing is give him a break. Stress levels don’t come down instantly, in fact they can take days to return to their normal levels after an incident! Giving him at least a few days break from both positive and negative arousal/stress events is key to ensuring this does not become a frequent occurrence.
