Therefore, it is important to have knowledge to minimize the damage, and to call the Dog Attack/Animal Bite Lawyers at Carabin Shaw if an attack ensues.Attack Tips
The first line of defense is to let the dog bite something on you that isn’t you, i.e. a sweater sleeve. If the dog does bite the sleeve let it pull the clothing off and slowly back away. This may keep the dog busy enough for you to safely leave the area. Other decoys include a stick, stuff dog toy or even your shoe if you can get it off fast enough.
The most important thing to do when being attacked/bitten is to protect your face, chest, and throat and keep your hands in fists to protect your fingers. If you MUST be bitten, the safest place for it would be the shin or the forearm as a dog bite to the thigh could cause fatal bleeding.
When you are bitten, it will be natural to try and pull away. It is important to fight that urge as that will only make the injury worse. When the dog bites, you will want it to latch on to you so you can use your other limbs to lift the dog off the ground or stop the attack in another way.Help for Dog Bites
