Just days after the first anniversary of the dog attack, I'm furious to report yet another situation last weekend with 4 dogs running wild in our community and behaving aggressively through the fence toward my 3 dogs who where playing in the backyard with me. They are new here. This is at least the third time they've been running loose recently. The situation included 4 German Shepherds, 3 adults, 1 adolescent/puppy.
So, I'm extra interested in this new study about dogs that bite other dogs. It looked at demographic details of the dogs that bite other dogs, the nature of those bites, and the impact of those bites (such as needing veterinary care). The study did not look into motivations or triggers. As Stanley Coren wrote in his recap of the study, "In other words, attempting to answer the questions who, what, and where, but not why."
