  • Darlin McDaniel wrote, "My own dog has never hurt me, but I'm a pet sitter and some of my clients' dogs have inadvertently hurt me. It's usually when I try to walk two dogs at the same time and they separate when we're going out the door. My thumb was sprained once in '04 and has never completed healed since. My upper arm was severely bruised from being slammed into the edge of a door about two months ago and there's still a darkened place on my skin. Fortunately, I've not been hurt badly enough to require professional treatment. Knock on wood! XD"
  • Penny Pombert wrote, "My dog dislocated my shoulder once when he was in a hurry to get to the park, same park he drug me into a wet ditch to meet another dog."        
  • DNPombert wrote, "My puppy sometimes thinks he should wake me up early and so he stands on my chest. Wouldn't be a problem but he weighs 65 lbs!"
  • Mona wrote, "My Chihuahua has repeatedly scratched my legs till they bleed by simply jumping off my lap to chase one of the cats or to bark at the doors or windows...of course the cats (4 of them) have all done the same thing or have jumped down from the cat tower onto me and brought blood. Of course, nothing intentional by any of them."
  • Marcy wrote, "We jokingly call our dog a speed bump. He lays on the floor right near us when we're working around the house. Many times, as I go to step over him, he lifts up his head or starts to get up and I have to catch myself from falling."
  • Michelle Dean wrote, "I was playing one night with my shepherd labx one night. We were playing with one of her stuffed toys and she accidentally lacerated my eye with her claw. I spent most of the night in emergency and had to have eye surgery the following day. Fortunately my eyesight has not been altered, but I did have blurry vision for several months and have developed a great deal of scar tissue under my eyelid."        
  • Jan wrote, "Beathoven was another stray and is the love of our little family. He is a Flat Coated Retriever but doesn't know it! He has no papers and an abundance of love. As his personality is stronger than mine, Jasmine the cat and I are his pets! Jazzie had only one litter of kits and B-man helped "birth" them and raise them! Now at 11 years he is no longer a threat to me, but has broken my ankle and my arm, but I didn't care because he was more fun than a barrel of monkeys! This guy has the best disposition and is now so mannerly even our pastor is impressed! The Lord may take him soon but he goes with the love of all who have met him."
  • Maureen Longstaff wrote, "The Mother dog was tangled up in her puppy son's neck chain, he was only weeks old she only over a year, both Pomeranians, he was choking to death literally, and she was loosing blood flow in her leg, I was trying helplessly to free them both, before the pup passed out, I couldn't do anything as her leg was twisted many times in it, she was biting at me out of sheer panic, my husband was able to come to the rescue, he snapped the chain with plyers and freed them both, just in time for the pup to catch his breath. I still have the pup 14years and 4 months on. Unfortunatly his Mum took Cushings disease just over a year ago and had to be put to sleep, she was 14years and 4 months. So all turned out for good in the end and God blessed me with many happy years with Dougal's Mum Elle."
  • KC wrote, "We were rough-housing and my beagle pulled on my hand and accidently broke the skin with his teeth."
  • Julie wrote, "When coming home form walking my two dogs - German shorthair and Australian Cattle dog mix, the neighbor's cat was on my front porch - jumped down and the dogs went racing after the cat - the leashes were wrapped around my wrist which resulted in a broken wrist. I have also been bitten trying to break up a fight - no intentional bites to me."
  • Joanne wrote, "I wrote that my dog had never hurt me although he did bite me very soon after I adopted him. He was beside himself with fear and, I guess, a lot of other baggage he carried as a result of being abused. However, once he came to know and trust me, and I've established training, limit setting and affection into his world, he has never been aggressive since - so, I don't count the little bite during our first weeks together. Now, my dog is my constant companion and friend just as he was meant to be."
  • Cheryl wrote, "Most of us seem to have been bitten by accident; while playing or breaking up a fight. And a lot of us have suffered from bloody noses by coming into contact with a dog head. Mine also occasionally pokes me in the eye with his nose while trying to give me kisses! It's long and sharp and he seems to have awful depth perception!"
  • Mark4Java wrote, "I've found that most injuries and accidents come from the dog not being trained properly. However that doesn't excuse bad behavior. I wouldn't trade any of the accidents or falls for anything in the world. However if my dog every bit me that would only occur once. They would be taught whatever they had to be not to have that happen again. Most dogs are friendly like mine are by nature. Mistakes happen. But that doesn't excuse me from teaching them right and wrong."
  • Gail wrote, "My companion is a very active Shih Tzu named Sweetie Pie. We play a lot together and her favorite game is "chase the ball". Once when I was bending over to retreive her ball, for another throw, she launched herself in the air and collided with my nose ! I received a bloody nose but learned to be much more careful in the future..."
  • Sharon Slater wrote, "My 8 month old, and 100 pound Labrador accidently bit my finger while playing. She has tripped me only trying to stay close to me as she follows me everywhere. Sometimes she pulls when walking if she see's another human or animal, as she seems to love everyone. Gosh, and she hasn't stopped growing. Vet says she will be huge."
  • Paula V. Sorte, "My male Bouvier pulled me down on frozen lawn while chasing a small dog while on his walk and I fractured 3 right upper anterior ribs. Another of my Large male Bouviers caused me to slip on stairs while letting him out to pee during the night and shattered my 5th metatarsal so badly that it required surgery. Other than that the are darlings and I love them all to 'pieces'."        
  • Christine wrote, "Alright - so our dogs through their enthusiasm or poor training sometimes harm us... now let's see the poll that our dogs fill out about how often their humans accidentally hurt them."
