I've gotten some minor injuries
while sledding and skijoring but it certainly wasn't the dogs' fault.

I didn't think the post was about it being the dogs fault, I thought it was just injuries... Emotion: tongue tied
I don't understand why you think being bitten is acceptable? My dogs don't bite me. Nor do they fight. I bet the same at Bethf's house.

I've had a few bites - again, not her fault, her being fast and a little over enthusiastic with tuggy games. My fault.
Then walking her - sliding on mud/ black ice/ wet grass. Tripping over tree roots. A few pulled muscles where she went to take off in chase mode and forgot about the lead. Broken fingernail from getting it caugt in the lead.

Most common injury - bruises from Pete pushing her off him and on to my head when she jumps on the bed in the morning. Grumpy old git Emotion: smile... second - she has this annoying habit of rushing up to you, putting her front feet on yours, playbowing & stretching backwards, dragging her feet back over yours. Must keep her nails shorter! Headbutts and her nose poking me in the eyes are the next... all good fun Emotion: big smile Eventually managed to suss a recall that doesn't have me knocked over, but I have to move quickly.

No pain, no gain Emotion: big smile

I didn't say that being bitten is acceptable. But I think the notion that whether or not accidents happen is entirely dependent on the level of training is, frankly, stupid. But I certainly am looking forward to more exaggerated descriptions of water-walking chez vous.

I can't believe you consider yourself an "expert" if you can't control your dogs better than that. And then to launch a silly attacks at someone just because they don't understand fighting or biting dogs. I'll dismiss your crankiness to PMS
Thank you very much
OOh, forgot a good one Emotion: big smile
In order to teach her that our morning greetings didn't need to be about leaping up and snogging me, I taught her to run between my legs and I scratch her back and give her tickles. its OK for me - though I'm short I' know what's coming and hop up in time.

1) I don't consider myself an expert, and 2) my dogs areunder control.

If you don't understand fighting or biting dogs, I guess you're not an expert either, eh? But you're veering off- topic - again, the notion that you'll never have an accident with a perfectly-trained dog is stupid.

I wasn't saying those types of injuries were the dog's fault. The dog was a peripheral factor. She could have been injured skijoring with a horse. it's a snow related.. NOT dog related activity.
My bafflement was the fact she got bitten, and considered it as a part of owning a dog.
She attacked me btw..
I guess that's why huskies are insurance ban lists. (shrug)
Good Answer..perfect. IAWTP 100%

I think it's kind of a silly answer. Accidents happen.

That's kind of what I was thinking. I train my dogs too, but I'm not sure how training would prevent a dog's head moving into my chin at the wrong moment.

I was chatting with my coworkers the other day and the conversation drifted to pets, and then to stories of ... to people, and not just by biting. How many here have been injured by dogs, or know someone who has?

luce broke my finger once. it wasn't long after i got her, and she was somewhat lacking in the leash manners department. she charged a squirrel and somehow the leash got wrapped around just the very tip of my left middle finger, and it got twisted and broke right at the base of my fingernail.

I missed where Melinda said being bitten is acceptable. My dogs don't bite me either, and they don't fight. Tasha bit me once, though, years ago, when I accidentally closed a baby gate on her paw. I don't consider that her fault. I was recently bitten by a guest dog when I did something less than brilliant and he was over-excited - - a displaced aggression situation. A foster GH bit me when I tried to free her nail from where it was caught in her water pail. Accidents happen, at least to us mere mortals.
