Frequently Asked Questions
Does A Stronger Bite Make A Dog More Dangerous?
It’s easy to think that the breeds on this list would represent the most threatening dog breeds since those with greater biting force are commonly assumed to be more hazardous. But in reality, it is not quite so straightforward. Yes, these canine varieties can certainly deliver harder and possibly deadlier bites than any other breed out there; however, there are many additional factors at play here as well.
Data concerning dog attacks are primarily gathered through witness reports, thus making it highly suspect. Additionally, since most reported bites are severe in nature, likely millions of more mild incidents go unreported every year. Although mutts are the most commonly found pup and are reported to be responsible for more fatalities than other breeds, it is important to remember that this is not an inevitable outcome. To best understand the safety of a particular pooch one must take into account their genetic composition, training received, and environment in which they live – among numerous others. Mutts can be just as safe (if not safer) than purebreds if given all of these considerations!
Ultimately, any canine may bite and some breeds boast a greater jaw strength than the average dog. Although this may sound logical on paper, it is much more sophisticated in nature. Therefore, don’t hesitate to bring home a Kangal or American Bandogge pup! Just make sure you take the time to educate them properly as well as introduce them to social situations for an optimal pet experience.
Are Dog Bites That Serious?
More than just occasionally nibbling on the skin, dog bites can sometimes be so savage that they require medical assistance, even potentially surgery. To ensure safe and enjoyable experiences when around dogs, it is imperative to teach children what proper canine etiquette entails.
Remember, no matter a dog’s size or how friendly it may seem, all breeds of dogs can bite. Don’t be fooled by its seemingly playful nature either – even the most trained and beloved pet can still snap if they’re feeling scared, hungry, annoyed, or scared (just like us humans). If you think that your kids know their way around animals owned by someone else well enough to trust them alone with one, always take extra precautions and watch them closely while they are with another person’s pet.
