Scott Sylvia says one way to prevent bites is to understand the dog’s behaviour.

“Some of them have a very high prey drive. So if you’re making fast movements, or you’re riding past them on a bike, that’ll probably engage them, they’ll want to chase it,” Sylvia says.

Sylvia also says a key thing is to respect the dog and respect their owners. He says to ask permission from an owner before approaching a dog.
