Frequently Asked Questions about Dog Bites

Q: What are dangerous breeds laws?

A: Some states and cities have passed laws limiting ownership and/or requiring registration of certain breeds they have deemed to be "dangerous." These are typically large breeds of dogs and may include Pit Bull Terriers, Rottweilers, Chow Chows, German Shepherds and Akitas, for example.

Q: Are certain types of dogs more dangerous than others? What determines whether or not a dog will bite?

A: According to the American Humane Society, the breed of dog does not predict whether or not the dog will bite or attack people. The American Veterinary Medical Association has determined five factors that influence whether or not a dog will become aggressive and attack people: heredity, early experience, later socialization and training, health and victim behavior.
