Dog Bite Prevention Week 2016 (May 15 – May 21)

This year, the National Dog Bite Prevention Week for 2016 comes upon us starting the 15th of May, all the way up to the 21st of May.

But, why exactly is this a big deal that’s talked about EVERY YEAR, one may ask.

Well, for starters, did you know that more than 4,500,000 people are bitten each and every year in the U.S.A alone? This means that one person is bitten by a dog every 75 seconds. Now if that doesn’t deserve an awareness week each and every single year, I don’t know what does!

In this infographic, we’ve put together the most interesting dog-bite statistics, facts and events that the year of 2015 witnessed, all in order to raise awareness about how much of a serious problem this is.

So, enjoy the infographic, and feel free to post it on your site, share it on social media or spread it around however you want to, just remember to give proper credit back to this page! That’s all we’d ask.

Without further ado, let’s start!

P.S: If you’ve got any dog bite-related stories of your own, let’s talk about them in the comments section below!

  1. Hello there! This blog post could not be written any better!

    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept preaching about this. I will forward this post to him.
    Fairly certain he’s going to have a great read. I appreciate you for sharing!

  2. Comment: Dog bite prevention week? Seriously? Absolutely no information on how to prevent dog bites. This is stupid. Not helpful at all.
