Dog Bite Prevention Week

7th to 14th June is Dog Bite Prevention Week. Yes, Glen of Imaal Terriers are usually quite good with people but they have bitten and there will be people reading this who have the scars!
Between 2012-2013 6,302 people were hospitalised overnight due to dog bites. This excludes GP visits, A & E visits and those not reported. A 50% rise in a decade. There are 8.5 million dogs in the UK. We can’t avoid them. Children under 9 are most likely to be bitten. If you do anything that could use information from either this or this please use them. Why not have a look in your local library?
It could save a life – dog or human

  1. 95% of the time its down to the clown on the end of the lead due to them not training and disciplining their dog/s or being far too weak for the breed they own or simply shouldnt own a dog.
    I know one or two Glen owners from abroad frown on strong discipline ” it ruins their sprit” ! Dogs are a pack animal and need to know there place.
    Dogs im close to ie collies arent pets they are bred to work and need mental stimulation I must make it clear im not talking about the kc rubbish but real working collies. I suggest people who disagree speak to the many collie rescues in the uk.
