Oh, lots of issues here. Why would someone post a question like this? The answer is to provoke the site, you didn't need me to tell you that. Is it that all the ones that answered that dog bites happen more often in the care of grandparents really know the statistics?? No, although I am sure there is probably a study done some where that suggest that a certain percentage of dog bites occur when grandchildren are with their grandparents, just like I am sure there is a study that says grape is the best flavor of Kool aid. Did you do your homework or because a bite happened again in a grandparents home that you generalize all bites do!!! I notice that whatever the first person gives for an answer is often repeated by anyone who answer a particular question, they just copy cat the first person. I saw a horrifying question posted by a person who owned an Australian Shepherd, and everyone who answered just gave the same answer as the first answer, however, the first answer was wrong, and all answers that followed were wrong, and if I had not happened to be in dogs that day and explained to this sacred woman about an MDR1 gene, her sacred puppy may have been killed due to the ignorance of people submitting answer. Is it the ones that answered TRUE never going to be a grandparent or when you do that makes you a bad owner that can no longer control your dog?? The blame game started in the garden of Eden, Adam blamed Eve, Eve blamed the serpent. In this question people just blamed a grandparent. Does that mean when you become a grandparent than you cannot have your grandchildren over to the house?? Well this question is tricky for me, I had very abusive grandparents. We would certainly have benefited if we had been prevented from being around our grandparents. I will concede that my phobias are all traced back to abuse from my paternal grandmother, while all our grandparents were abusive, she caused the most harm to us as children. Please..Do you believe this to be true?? I think that some children do in fact need to be protected from grandparents, just as they need to be protected from parents sometimes and extended family sometimes, and from people in church and from teachers, and, well I guess we need to teach our children about good people and bad people and don't forget to teach them about bad people. How many cases do you know that happened at a grandparents home?? Now this is the part that is interesting in my personal experience. While I will concede to you that my grandparents were extremely abusive to us as children, a lot of what we know as children about dogs, and farming, we learned from our parents and grandparents. I have been bitten by so many dogs in my life, I have lost count, but ironically, I can't think of one incident when I was attacked by a dog and I was around a family member. While our parents and grandparents harmed us, they taught us that dogs come first, animals come first, and they treated the animals well, it was just the children they abused. I will also concede to you that my ex husband did also treat the dogs better than he treated me.
