If your dog bites someone, there can be legal implications for you as the dog's owner. Get tips here on how to prevent your dog from biting.

According to the Humane Society, one of the top things you can do to prevent your dog from biting is to spay or neuter it. The Humane Society says that spayed or neutered dogs are less likely to roam or show aggression with other dogs or people.

Socializing your dog is also key to preventing it from biting. By introducing your dog to different types of people it will teach your dog how to adapt to new people and situations without feeling alarmed and nervous.

Training is also important to prevent your dog from biting, according to the Humane Society. Training your dog can teach it how to socialize and listen to your commands.
