No drastic changes, but I've reorganized the site layout and other features in order to make everything more user-friendly. The new search feature is from Google's Blogger Beta in Draft, and it's terrific. I've removed the SnapShots feature. Categories [labels] have been edited and expanded.
Dog Bites: Information and Statistics was begun in November 2007, and within a month was appearing among the first twenty results for dog bite and dog attack statistics using Google Search -- often in the first ten, and occasionally at the top. I welcome the visits and the responsibility.
The words I wrote in the first post are as heartfelt today as ever:
I'm not interested in cherry-picking studies to make specific breeds look good or bad: in fact, I believe the "safe breed"/"dangerous breed" dichotomy is one of the reasons dog bites are as common as they are. The aim of Dog Bites: Information and Statistics is to counter the ignorance and urban legend surrounding the topic by providing the most factual and up-to-date statistics on dog bites and dog attacks.The purpose of this site is to provide easy access to solid research on dog bites: to provide links to peer-reviewed studies and reports from the most respected sources. A narrow focus, but an important one, and I look forward to adding more studies from the U.S. and abroad. Thanks for reading!
