- Fighting dogs – Be aware that if you choose to intervene, you might be bitten. As a dog gets more excited their behaviors become more inhibited.
- Many dogs feel stress when going to the vet. This may be because the other animals around make him nervous or they just smell something not quite right.
- Routine grooming acts may cause anxiety for your dog; nail clipping, fur trimming, or bathing.
Distracting a dog with treats or bones is one method to divert a potential biting incident.
