Why do dogs bite their owners' hands?

Have you ever been bitten by your own dog?

Today we're not talking about bites when a dog accidentally hurts its owner, but bites when it gently holds your hand or wrist in its mouth, and of course, it might scratch a little skin. In fact, this kind of bite is very common, most of the puppies.

Why do you bite?

It's simply excitement, which is why it's so common in puppies. Puppies have a lot to learn, including how to get along with their owners. So from the point of view of a puppy that has not learned this knowledge, in a very happy situation, it will certainly use the same way to entertain the owner, and gently bite the owner's hand and wrist is the expression.

Why only the hand?

I believe this is the question of many owners, in fact, from another perspective, there is an answer, which human organization and the frequency of contact with the outside world is the most? Hands, of course.

What about dogs? In addition to the smell of dogs, the most contact with the outside world is only the mouth, people will shake hands to show friendship, and dogs will bite each other to show friendship.

The part of your dog that you come into contact with the most is your hands! In the dog world, your hand is its mouth, so when you come to play with it, or when it is excited, it will naturally bite your "mouth" to express its mood.

Should the dog just grow up?

Any kind of bad behavior by any dog, if the owner is not ruthless enough to correct it, then sooner or later it will cause big problems.

From the dog owner's point of view, this behavior is understandable, after all, their dog's way of expressing emotions; But from a non-dog owner's point of view, this behavior is very dangerous.

Strictly speaking, this behavior needs to be corrected, do not think that the dog will understand that this behavior if not corrected in time, will only increase with age and confidence.


How to correct it?

Let the dog know what to do and what not to do. Take the hand biting problem, for example. MINI had this habit as a child, but we didn't have much trouble getting rid of it.

Because MINI knows who's boss on weekdays, when it bites my wrist, I just need to change my tone and keep staring at it, and it will naturally release its mouth and move away from me.

Why is this? This is directly related to establishing good host status in everyday life.
