"Why Do Dogs Bite"

If you are in a confrontation with a dog and it acts nervous, backs up, retreats or puts its ears back, it is telling you it is uncomfortable with whatever the situation is. It might be just that you are a stranger and it is not sure if you are friendly or hostile. It might feel you are intruding or want to do it harm. If this is the case, the dog has two options, run away or defend itself and its territory. Maybe it has no where to retreat, maybe it is hemmed in so it has no choice but to attack.

Natural Behavior

All dogs have teeth and can bite. They learned this from day one. It is perfectly natural for them. They can bite for many reasons. Not all bites are for vicious attack reasons but never the less any bite can be harmful.


If a dog is aggressive and has a history of attacking, the owner needs to be very careful on who this type of dog comes in contact with. You must know your dogs personality and take full responsibility for this animal. If your dog does anyone harm, you are responsible unless you can prove the animal was provoked into an attack or someone may be trespassing into your home etc. It is always a good idea to post signs that say, dog on premises or guard dog on premises just to inform anyone who may wander or trespass onto your property that they may be in danger.
