Our society loves dogs, there’s no doubt about it. Adapting along our sides since before history was recorded, “man’s best friend” has established a seemingly permanent place among our society and within our homes. In fact, more than 45,000,000 American households include a dog.
Unfortunately, while our four-legged companions are lovable creatures treated as members of our families, the fact remains that they are still animals. As animals, they often act purely out of instinct. This means that biting is a natural reaction for a dog when experiencing a stressful situation. A dog may might because it’s startled, threatened, or scared; out of feeling a need to protect themselves, their owner, or their home; and sometimes, a dog may even bite while playing.
