Bite statisics and details. I want to learn more!
I was poking around looking for Doby bite reports and found some here! It seems in most cases of properly cared for dogs, the Doby responded WAY out of character usually biting a known person or handler.
I am not new to dogs, training, etc (certainly not a pro either), and we have several protocols here to ensure people are not using risky behavior around our Doby but I want to learn more about these bite cases and if there is usually a medical finding, etc? It seems they don't display any signs, just snap, which is the worst possible situation.
I teach everyone around our Doby to never put their face by hers, never force her, don;t hit her, and never approach her, let her approach you. To date, I have had not even one close call or concern other than she is just a big ball of energy that can be too much for people. She has never been fenced, chained, etc, and goes everywhere with me. I leave her in the back of the truck for short periods when I can see her and she is always excited to see the world.
She was attacked mildly by a Shepard once and she ran, did not fight. She looked at me like "what is that dude's problem dad?" I try to prevent those interactions because it can cause her to be unstable meeting new dogs.
I just want to learn more about bite cases with them. How it happened, age of dog, upbringing, med background, etc. I like to be proactive as it is just too late AFTER the bite. They are big with sharp teeth. One snap and you get stitches at a minimum.
