    Rother accident claim solicitors

    Need the best Rother, accident claim solicitors for a dog bite?

    Are you a dog person or a cat person?

    It has been claimed that pets are the most relaxing thing of all. If you have space in your house, having a cat curl up in your lap at the end of a long hard day can be delightful. It is said that their purring actually makes you feel relaxed and takes your blood pressure down.

    A dog provides hours of fun and when you take them for a walk the exercise is great for both them and for you. Lots of people talk to their dogs and look forward so much to all their little tricks.

    There are so many types to choose from too: different sizes and breeds galore. If you just have a small house or flat you could just get a lapdog or a small kind of dog such as a terrier, and if you have plenty of space why not a large dog such as a wolf hound or a greyhound.

    Make sure you can look after your dog properly

    Just make sure that if you have an active type of dog, such as a collie or sheepdog, you’ll have time to look after it, take it for walks and play with it, because sometimes this type of dog will be destructive if it’s left at home all alone all day, and rip up curtains and paper.

    If you get a puppy you need to make sure that you’ve got the patience to house train it, too. There’s no point getting upset if a puppy ruins your favourite rug because you haven’t trained it in the first place.

    Finally you need to decide if you’ll get an animal from a breeder or from a rescue centre. Lots of older animals from a rescue centre are calmer and need a bit less attention than a younger puppy, and if you’re not worried about their pedigree then it can be a good option.

    If you have no time for a dog or even a cat, perhaps a smaller animal such as a hamster or a lizard could be good for you. Just keep them clean and feed them regularly, and they can be good companions too.

    Animals can be dangerous

    However, if you’ve no pet of your own, don’t be tempted to go out and play with someone else’s. You don’t know if a cat you see on the street has fleas you might catch, or if a dog is dangerous.

    So dogs look lovely and fluffy, but you can easily be bitten by even the cutest. So take care. If you are attacked by an animal and it is not your fault, call the Rother, accident claim solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline.

    The number to ring is 0800 689 0500 and from your mobile 0333 500 0993. You will get through to our Rother, accident claim solicitors and they will be able to help straight away.
