June 17, 2006 — -- Last week, a pair of loose pit bulls charged into a San Fernando, Calif., school, chasing students into a restroom and attacking an 11-year-old girl. She's going to be okay, but she's just one of 4.7 million people who'll be bitten by dogs this year.

Bob Conklin, a professional dog trainer at the Hudson Valley K9 Academy, and his assistant Harry Lazorda appeared on "Good Morning America Weekend Edition" with a German shepard patrol dog to give advice on how to protect yourself or your child from a dog attack.
