Don’t forget to include emergency contacts in your registration data.4. Take the time to update your contact information if it has changed.5.

Dogs and Babies: Never Alone Together!!

A recent article in the American Journal of Forensic Science described 3 separate instances in which unattended infants in baby swings were fatally mauled by the family dog. Major triggers for canine aggression include dominance, possessive, territorial or protective, pain or redirected, and predatory aggression. It is impossible to know what triggered the fatal attack in these cases, but it was hypothesized that predatory aggression was triggered in these dogs by the movement of the swing. Children should never be left unattended with family pets.
