Is Your Dog Stressed by the Pandemic Too?

One Georgia county reported a 50% increase in dog bite calls from March to April 2020. In early April, Minneapolis ordered all dogs to be leashed after an increase in dog bites. According to Minneapolis Animal Care and Control, in March 2019, they saw 25 reports of bites or aggression. In March 2020, that rose to 45 incidents, an 80% increase from last year.

Our lives changed rapidly in the short weeks of March 2020 when Covid-19 affected the world. Not only were our normal schedules turned upside down, so were the lives of animals and our pets. One ripple effect has been the uptick in dog bites.

Join us as we learn why these changes have such an impact on our pets, as well as dog bite law and your rights as a victim or dog owner.
