“Properly trained, a man can be dog’s best friend.” – Corey Ford
Dog ownership has always been popular and existed throughout history. Dogs remain great companions and add a tremendous amount of joy to the lives of individuals and families today. Despite all the tail-wags and kisses, however, dogs are still animals that require training and supervision on the part of the owners in order to keep them happy and to ensure the safety of people around them.
Unfortunately, too many dog owners fail to take the necessary safeguards to protect innocent people from the actions of their dog(s). Statistics show that dog bites and dog attacks are one of the most common types of personal injury case.
We are currently experiencing an explosion in the popularity of dogs brought into congested urban areas—such as the City of Chicago. City dwelling may be convenient for the dogs’ owners, but the confined spaces, regular caging and the concentration of people in urban areas can be especially difficult on larger and more active breeds. These factors have contributed to an increase of dog attacks recently in the city.
