Aggressive Attitude

Whatever the reason for an assault, the dog often has the same attitudes. He bristles the hair; roll up the chops; growls. If the dog is sure of himself, the tail is raised, if he is afraid, it is lowered. The most dangerous dog is one who will not show these signs before the attack. It does not prevent.

The bite

It can be a simple pinch often minimized by the masters. Similarly, when the dog bites and then lets go, the masters consider it less serious than if he persists. It is not so. The gripping dog is aware of its strength and dominating position. He believes himself strong enough to allow himself to give only one warning, it is the most dangerous of all.
