SHOULD YOU LET YOUR DOG BITE YOU PLAYFULLY

       

You love to play with your canine friend when you come home after a long, tiring day, don’t you? Now, imagine your dog biting you while playing. Maybe you will find it cute while he is small but what after he is an adult?

It is common nature of dogs to bite their owner, but it is difficult to figure if they are doing it playfully. Mostly, dogs are non-aggressive when they bite their owner but it can harm and can cause injuries too. You cannot figure out if the dog is aggressive or not. Some dogs bite out of fear or frustration too.

People find dog biting cute when the dog is small but it can be harmful once the dog becomes can adult. Therefore, it is important to keep a check on your dog’s behavior. Dogs generally have the habit of chewing their owners’ toes and hands. You can place a chewing bone or toy in front of him if he is biting your hand. The owners should discourage this habit in their puppyhood itself as teaching an adult dog about not biting can be a difficult task.

The owners should teach their dogs bite inhibition and to be gentle. The dogs who are not trained and haven’t learnt about bite inhibition may bite too hard, even while playing which can have hazardous results. If the dog is trained well, he has learnt to control mouthing and is less likely to bite hard even when he is agitated.

Therefore, it is necessary to train your dogs and be safe while playing with them. Afterall, an inch of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
