PROTECTING PEOPLE WITHIN THE HOME
Elderly people and children are the most vulnerable and it is imperative to protect them from the danger of aggressive dogs.
Keep the dog away from such people. If this is not possible then a responsible adult must supervise them, particularly children.
Do not allow children to handle aggressive dogs.
Avoid situations that provoke the dog, e.g. if the dog is defensive of food, feed him away from people, e.g. outside.
Use a muzzle while the dog is around vulnerable people.
