The Grey Bruce Public Health Unit and Grey Bruce Veterinary Association are launching an awareness campaign to help people understand most dog bites are preventable and reducing the number of dog bites is everyone's responsibility.

To stay safe:

  • Never approach a stray dog or a dog you don't know.
  • Ask the owner's permission before petting a dog.
  • Keep your dog under control at all times.
  • Socialize your dog starting from a puppy.
  • Immunize your dog against rabies (It's the law!).
  • Seek medical attention of you do get bit.
