In this video you will learn about why it is so important to teach dogs bite inhibition and also how to detect the warning signs of a dog bite or attack.
If someone says that a dog bit or attacked with no warning signs, well that simply isn’t true.
Dog bites and attacks are actually very very predictable, and very very avoidable when you know what to look for.
When something is happening to our dog or around our dog that is making them uncomfortable, they will give off warning signs.
Because we are humans who don’t naturally understand dog body language, it is very easy to miss these warning signs.
If we miss the warning signs, and continue to do what ever it is that the dog doesn’t like, and the dog bites us, then it is OUR FAULT!
It is not fair to get mad or angry at a dog for biting when they were asking us to stop and we didn’t.
Below is what I call the dog aggression ladder, and it shows you the build up of signs that a dog will give that eventually leads to a bite.
Now keep in mind that you won’t necessarily see every single warning sign or action on this ladder before a bite occurs, but you will always at minimum see at least one, and that is your cue to identify what is bothering your dog and remedy the situation.
When you see your dog displaying the behaviors on this chart, here is what they would say to you if they could speak english.
” Stop it! “
” I don’t like what your doing to me! “
” Leave me alone! “
” I’m scared! “
