Biting Doesn’t Always Mean What You Think It Does
Most people don’t particularly enjoy it when they’re bitten by a dog. But some bites or nips, especially if they’re done by a dog you know well, can actually be a sign of affection or an indication that the pup wants to play.
If you just watch dogs playing with each other, you’ll probably see a lot of biting involved. Most of the time it’s just done in fun and there’s nothing aggressive behind the behavior.
