You’ve trained your dog well, but they’re an animal and you can’t always predict their behavior. If a dog is threatened, there’s a possibility they will bite, even if they were trained not to.
Here’s everything you need to know about preventing dog bites
There are many reasons even the best-behaved dog will bite. They may be aggressive, threatened, or anxious. To read more into dog’s emotions, you must know their body language.
If the dog crouches down and their tail is wagging, they may be anxious and/or aggressive. If a dog is feeling just anxious, they’re going to yawn more often, push their ears down to their head, hide their tail, and crouch down.
If a dog is feeling aggressive, they could again wag their tail. Their tail, back, fur, and ears will be positioned to look as tall as possible.
Now that you know more about why dogs bite, make sure to follow these bite prevention tips. As always, if you or your dogs are bitten, visit a Waldorf emergency veterinarian right away.
