Reducing Dog Bites by Understanding the Secret Language of Dogs

Dog bites and injury to veterinarians, staff, and pet professionals are often considered an occupational hazard. Many of the situations that may result in a dog bite can be prevented by understanding the language and emotions of dogs.

Celebrity dog trainer and author Victoria Stilwell discusses dog body language, behavior, and how to safely interact with dogs as part of National Dog Bite Prevention Week.

Stilwell is joined by State Farm Brand Specialist Heather Paul, who discusses dog bite insurance claims data for 2018, dog bite liability, and how the insurance company is working to reduce dog-related injuries as a member of the Dog Bite Prevention Coalition.
