In this video you will learn about why it is so important to teach dogs bite inhibition and also how to detect the warning signs of a dog bite or attack.

If someone says that a dog bit or attacked with no warning signs, well that simply isn’t true.

Dog bites and attacks are actually very very predictable, and very very avoidable when you know what to look for.

When something is happening to our dog or around our dog that is making them uncomfortable, they will give off warning signs.

Because we are humans who don’t naturally understand dog body language, it is very easy to miss these warning signs.

If we miss the warning signs, and continue to do what ever it is that the dog doesn’t like, and the dog bites us, then it is OUR FAULT!

It is not fair to get mad or angry at a dog for biting when they were asking us to stop and we didn’t.

Below is what I call the dog aggression ladder, and it shows you the build up of signs that a dog will give that eventually leads to a bite.

Now keep in mind that you won’t necessarily see every single warning sign or action on this ladder before a bite occurs, but you will always at minimum see at least one, and that is your cue to identify what is bothering your dog and remedy the situation.

When you see your dog displaying the behaviors on this chart, here is what they would say to you if they could speak english.

” Stop it! “
” I don’t like what your doing to me! “
” Leave me alone! “
” I’m scared! “

    1. @Emanuela Amati by the alpha “bullshit” i ment dont let your dog dominate over you ? And im a slav so dont require me to wright correctly

    1. @Ale Will I’d guess you’ve had a bad experience but I strongly disagree, I’ve seen surprising emotional intelligence from some dogs that I’ve owned.

  1. “He talks to much blah blah blah”

    Are you even listening to what he’s saying? Most of it is important, he’s informing the viewing of signs that a dog might bite and why a dog would bite and more. This video isn’t just about him showing himself getting bit, it’s about what to do and what to look for.

  2. This is spot on. It took me a while to teach my pup his bites actually hurt. He learned at about 5-6 months. Before that it was hell play fighting with him😂

  3. Amazing video 👍🏼. That’s exactly how a dog should act and respond to an owner when they’re being annoying 😂 Showed multiple signs and even his eyes after biting you really shows how sorry he feels. Very well trained and beautiful dog you have 🐕🙌🏼

  4. Thank you so much for this video my Rottweiler puppy is soon to be born and I’m learning new things every day before she’s ready to come home and this is something I never thought about teaching a dog! I’ll be working on it with her for sure!

  5. Good content and a decent lesson, but every dog is different and sometimes there might not be much of a warning sign. Have strong boundaries with your dog should be fine

    1. @Anonymous Commenter As a human person, people, regardless of their degree of relation to you, shouldn’t be touching you without your permission*


    2. Anonymous Commenter go and ask your spouse what you have a right to do lol. Interesting how you give yourself a permission to do anything to another human’s body.

  6. I watched this video 4 years ago when I got my German Shepherd and taught him bite inhibition. He snapped at me once cause I wanted to test this out and he barely put any pressure at all. Never did it to him again. Such a great dog <3

    Edit: I want to add that yes the warning signs are very obvious and are important to learn and teach to kids

    1. It is so sweet ❤️ It’s amazing really. Like the man explained in the video, it’s their nature and natural way of communicating their being annoyed. So the dog reassures his owner with kisses that it’s intention was to not harm or disrespect them. The dog is able to do this because of bite inhibition at an early age. The dog was the one being disrespected and still gave expressed love and respect for his owner.

    1. My patterdale terrier isn’t trained whatsoever it doesn’t sit stay or even fetch and it is the most passive dog in the world

  7. Absolutely loved it ALL…very eazy to follow, understand and appreciate without the UNNECESSARY drama/theatrics. YET, wasn’t boring. Great clip✊

    1. I owned a Rottie, he was a rescue, got him at a year old. The sweetest dog in the world, absolutely loved humans, 1000% lovable, super lazy and intelligent. Opening fridges was his favourite, stashing his findings in my bed. No bad bone in his body, babies could take bones from his mouth. He sadly passed at 13 years of age in 2019. Still love and miss him sorely to this day.
      Buddy ♥️

      Saddens my heart that people still like to stereotype the majority of the large/giant breeds. I’ve worked with horses for alot of my life and the biggest are always the gentlest of giants.

  8. My cat does exactly every step that this dog did when he’s annoyed – he paws, licks his lips, swishes his tail, and finally a gentle bite exactly like this. So apparently my cat is a Rottweiler. 🤣

    1. @Michael Hart
      Cats are amazing animals, you’re just stupid and repeating the same idiotic stereotype other idiots before you came up with

  9. I’m a dog groomer (15 years now), I so respect what you’re trying to do and I hope you know you’ve posted something that opens you up to so much judgement. This is an old post, but I feel inclined to respond anyway. I know and understand what you are saying and hope that any one that tries this at home understands the risk they take if attempting it. Best of luck to you.

  10. This video is brilliant, purely brilliant. He got us in here with a very flashy title, and then he taught us all about dog psychology and reminded us that dogs are never wrong.

  11. My daughter likes to lay on and partially smother our dog hugging him when he’s laying down. The dog will softly growl when he’s not liking it and I told her that his way of telling you he wants you to stop, you have to respect him. it’s his only way of telling you to stop.

    1. @Alex a dog should always have a say in the matter, they’re entitled to a life of peace and comfort, same as you. its your responsibility as their owner to train them, give them a home, and integrate them into your family. that isnt to say that you should walk on eggshells around dogs, a properly trained dog should be tolerant of annoyances to a reasonable degree, and would give signals if they were not comfortable. odds are, if you have a dog that is agressive, doesnt like being touched (especially while eating) or never stops barking, they are most likely lacking training. and a dog trained once isnt a trained dog. dog training is a continuous process. sometimes you need to test their responses to make sure they havent forgotten their training.

    2. @Alex
      No, they should not. Most dogs HATE baths, grooming, nail trims, shots, etc…but if they respect your authority, they should put up with any and all annoyances without showing an ounce aggression. A dog would only growl/bite at a housemate like this if it viewed the other dog/person as being of lower rank than itself. …the “trainer” in this video is simply the Rottweiler’s b*tch.

    3. @Anolis A Your way of “making dogs respect authority” creates fearful, unpredictable, and dangerous dogs. Dogs are sentient creatures. They have boundaries. There needs to be compromise in some areas, but the dog ALSO needs to be respected for the dog AND the people around them. They aren’t programmable little robots, they are animals with feelings and instinct.

  12. I train bite inhibition from day one with my rotts. In large part because I think play is very important in developing a strong bond (and we play hard sometimes) but also for not having a tragedy later. I know for a lot of people it may seem strange but teaching a dog how to properly bite is important for proper communication. Great video…and a great dog from what I saw 😉
