Steve talks with Dr. Douglas Kratt, president of the American Veterinary Medical Association and Heather Paul, spokesperson for State Farm Insurance.

In 2020, have dog bites gone up or down? We begin with detailing ways which most nearly all dog bites can be prevented. And about “reading” what dogs are telling us. Most homeowner’s insurance offerings focus on breed, and to State Farm (and AVMA) this makes no sense. There’s no data to support the notion that by looking at a dog you can create a profile that include the dog is more likely or less likely to bite.

Monday April 12 at Noon CT, a free Facebook live event – which you can watch and/or partake. I am moderating a panel, which includes Paul, Dr. Kratt, president American Veterinary Medical Association;  veterinary behaviorist Dr. Melissa Bain, professor of Clinical Animal Behavior at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine; Dr. Lisa Staubus, Rescue Veterinarian American Humane Association; Janet Ruiz, director of strategic communications Insurance Institute and Victoria Stilwell, dog trainer.
