Chipper did that to me when I was a young'un. I was bored one day and I wanted to see how long it took him to get up and walk away. So, after a bunch of ear pulls and hair pinches, he finally (gently) put his mouth over my hand to get me to stop. It shocked the crap out of me! so we played fetch afterwards.My fathers dog bit me when I was a child. We were told not to interact with her because she wasn't friendly to children and my father kept her in his greenhouse to guard our property.
I'm not sure if this is considered a "bite", however, once i thried to take a bone away from Ilya and he placed his teeth over my hand and pinned it to the floor for a few seconds. It shocked me and THEN I realized he was in la la land. Soooooo, I think this one is my fault. I've since got him to release bones without any issues.
I tend to think most dog owners have experienced a snap, nip, bite, or growl at some point in order to learn where their dogs' boundaries are.
Well to be fair I not only haven't been bitten by my own dog, I do not take sole credit for the incidents I mentioned earlier . In many cases (not all) I think people aren't necessarily blaming themselves for the bite as they are acknowledging that the whole incident was probably preventable in the first place.Wow, I completely shocked as well at how many people have been bitten and even take the blame for it......
