I find it amusing and perhaps indicative of where our society is today that there is no mention of the dog owners in this article. All of the responsibility has been laid on the person who is bitten and/or the dogs natural instinct.

Even dog owners know…… There are good dog owners and bad dog owners.
Dogs are animals, the owners are responsible for the actions of their dogs

How about a list starting with:
Train your dog
Leash your dog
Hold on to the leash
Keep the leash at a reasonable length
Maintain control over your dog at all times – make sure they know who their master is.
Don’t assume everyone wants your dog to jump all over them and/or their children
Do not encourage strangers to pet your dog
