Man Encourages Own Dog to Bite Him to a Lesson About Dog Bites
Read any article about preventing dog bites and you’ll hear trainers talk about the most common dog body language signals that often come as a pre-warning to full bite. Children, commonly, are unaware of those warning signs, things such as licking of lips, yawning and facial signals that dogs use as a way to discourage behaviour from people that it doesn’t like. This man thought it would be a good idea to encourage his own dog to bite him as a way to display some of those signals.
Do you think this was a useful training aid that could pass on information to dog owners to avoid being bitten by a dog?
