Many families with small children have dogs. Often they bite children. Adults begin to resent and do not understand what is happening.
In fact, everything is explained very simply. In the eyes of the dog, almost all family members are engaged in raising a child. During this process, they resort to raising their voices, shouting, threatening intonations, slaps, etc.
Seeing all this, the dog realizes that this is normal behavior with the child, which is permitted by everyone. Over time, she begins to bite the child. This is done not for the purpose of eating it, but with the goal of understanding that this behavior of a child does not please the dog.
Dogs very rarely resort to a bite. At first they begin to growl, beat with their teeth and only then can they really bite. A grin, barking, or growl may indicate a dog's discontent.
The dog takes the family in which it lives, for the pack. And each pack must have a boss and subordinates. This need for a dog is laid by nature.
In any family, the dog will try to take a place closer to the leader. She quickly understands who's boss. And most importantly the leader’s right is to control other family members, punish them for any insubordination.
Children often provoke dogs to aggression. A child can get close to a dog bowl, get a finger in the eye, etc.
The puppy does not pose any danger to the child. And as they get older, the dog quickly understands the child what is what and who is more important.
The task of adults in time to notice the manifestation of dog aggression towards a child and suppress it. So you let the dog know that its hierarchical level in the family is below the child’s level. It is not excluded that the dog will begin to see in the child a competitor for the right to lead.
Dogs are too complex creatures. Therefore, you never need to argue that your dog is not able to bite a child.
