Dog bite injury to a child

This article is a first hand account by a mother of how her child was bitten in the face. It confirms what I have been saying for years – that most dog bite injuries to children are avoidable. The dog was indicating that he was uncomfortable, and this was ignored. A child with a scarred face was the tragic result.

I have many interests and I have had a varied career. I am a semi-retired professional dog trainer, specialising in the use of positive reinforcement. I do some consultations, I run instructor workshops and I am setting up a Dogs and Psychotherapy Research Project. I have a law degree from Melbourne University (but have never practiced) and I am passionate about Human Rights. My first degree was in Sociology. I worked as a social researcher on issues such as low income housing, women's refuges and women in the workforce. I live in an inner suburb of Melbourne, Australia, and I have a German Shepherd called Chance.
