Why Do Dogs Bite?

  • Sharebar

Aggressive DogFact: Dogs bite more than 4.7 million people in the United States each year. Many of those cases are children.

Even though there are ways to curb the aggressive behavior in dogs, some bites can’t be prevented at all.  So, why do dogs bite?

There are some situation where dogs might feel trapped or fearful, which might lead them to growl or bite. Some dogs when ill or injured can also exhibit aggressive behavior.

If your dog, which otherwise was a trustworthy dog,  starts to show signs of aggression, take him to the veterinarian to make sure that the dog didn’t acted out of pain or discomfort. If pain is not the problem, the next step is to see a dog trainer. The sooner you deal with this issue, the better.

To prevent you dog from bitting, you should:

- Not allow your puppy to nip. Encourage him to chew on safe, appropriate toys instead.

- Socialize your puppy to children within his first few months of life. Well-socialized dogs are far less likely to bite.

- Do not allow your dog to be possessive of food or toys. Trade those with treats.

- Train your dog to follow basic commands and to respond to you anytime you want it.
