In the United States, approximately 800,000 people a year suffer injuries from dog bites that are significant enough to require medical treatment, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Children are particularly vulnerable. Of the dog-bite victims needing medical attention, half are children, the CDC found. Kids between the ages of 5 and 9 years old experienced the most bites.
