Foreword
It’s never been as common as now—the fact that dogsare attacking people, causing horrific injuries thatsometimes lead to death. Is the sobriquet “dogs areman’s best friends” fair and true? Why do some dogsturn aggressive while others remain calm?There are three undeniable facts that pertain to dogs:First, that nearly all dogs have an inherent protectiveinstinct; Second, that though each dog is born with adefinite temperament, it can be changed and molded bytraining and environment; Third, dog and master develop a strong bond very soon into their relationshipwhich goes on to give the dog a sixth sense – one thatincludes knowing his master’s likes and dislikes.This is why calm and mild tempered people have dogsof a similar nature while nervous and bad tempered people have dogs that mirror their personalities. In fact,a dog can also pick up a pet owner’s prejudices againstrace or class. Like us, dogs too can err. Sometimes, theymisinterpret an action or fail to recognize a person andattack him out of the blue.Another reason for a dog’s aggressive nature is hisancestry that goes back to the wolves of the wild. Some breeds like the pit bull are said to be more aggressivethan others. In fact, it is known to be the cause of 72%of all deaths by dogs in the United States. And, itattacks without provocation.
