Many dog proponents argue that specific dog breeds are not predisposed to aggression and that the rearing and training of a dog is the most significant factor in determining a dog’s temperament. This may well be true, and it is certainly true that any given dog isn’t dangerous simply because of its breed. However, it can be clearly shown that certain dog breeds are more statistically likely to be involved in a dog biting incident than others. This, combined with an evaluation of the breed’s size and strength, allows for a perfectly valid method of identifying dog breeds that are more dangerous than others.
Regardless of the breed of the animal, dog owners have an obligation to be aware of their pet’s demeanor and tendencies and to take the necessary precautions to ensure that the dog is never put in a situation where it may be a danger to other people.
