I don't know what worse, the fact that OP got bitten in the face, or the fact that the commenter's thought it might be a good idea to try it out for themselves..

They were just trying to understand OP's situation, I'm guessing OP might have been looking in the dogs eyes at the same time and that dog took it as a challenge (happened to me before).

umm any trained dog should never bite a face! That is a huge flashing neon sign that says "issues"! Regardless of OP being in the dogs face, since she stated it was her dog, this shouldn't have happened. My dogs wouldnt bite anyone let alone me or my family! My sisters kid grabbed my boys face (one little finger in the bottom of his eyelid, her thumb up under his lip and scrunched it all together) and all he did was look at me, no whining or grumbling! He knew she didnt mean it, but h

#19 - no, not necessarily. It's called bite inhibition, and my dog immediately backs away if his teeth even accidentally touch me in any way at any time. If my pit bull can do it, any dog can. Our trainer's dogs do it too, and they are little terrier types. Sometimes my dog will come up and lick where his teeth touched like he's trying to undo it. He hasn't nibbled at my husband or I since learning it as a little puppy, and has never bitten anyone. It's important to teach your dog incase t

My friend's dogs have been trained not to bite no matter what. You can get right in their face, get down by their food while they're eating and put your hand in front of it, anything. The only instance I can see them biting is if someone was hurting a person they liked.

Funny, I had a pit and a Rottweiler growing up and the worst thing that happened to me was a fat lip from getting head butted while wrestling with them. Now #45 just to pop your bubble I'm going to give you the reason behind those numbers. Pits aren't a "bad" breed but they are a breed that most piece of shit humans think of as the best dog to train for fighting. It stands to reason that if a breed is associated with fighting and by and large is the #1 breed trained to fight then that

How about you look at a resource that's more reliable than one biased against pitbulls? Did you know that MANY people misidentify pitties, which is why site like yours are so unreliable and why even the CDC can't make lists of the most 'dangerous' dogs. Its not the breed its the person and situation. Any dog has the potential to attack. Pits, spaniels, poodles, retrievers, etc. So before you go spewing your nonsense. Try to use reliable sources. But good luck because reliable sources (AVMA, for

Bloobloke, I have so much respect for you right now. It is good to know there is someone with some sense and knowledge. I've volunteered at my local vet clinic in their mini shelter and they many pits - at least 50. I've seen to each and every one at some point, and not one is even the slightest bit aggressive. There is a lot of dog fighting in my town, and over half of these pits were rescued from it. #45, try looking at an unbiased source next time.

And you guys are making blanket statements right back... "Pits aren't aggressive" "I've never seen an aggressive pit in ten years" etc etc. I'm sorry but the bullshit card is getting pulled out. I've been working at my local shelter every weekend I could for about 3 years. Almost all of the dogs with aggression issues are ex-fighting dogs and sadly most of those are pits. (This is California)There are maybe 5 dangerously aggressive dogs that weren't fighting dogs. I have se

Actually, a well trained Pit Bull -- even if trained for the rink -- is NOT supposed to show any aggression towards people. Dog Fighters may not be smart, but they are not stupid enough to use a dog that will bite someone who tries to separate them from a fight. People need to be able to reach in there during the middle of the attack, and not get bitten. That is considered a good fighting Pit Bull. If a dog shows aggression towards people, they are usually shot.

Yeah dogs don't like that sort of thing. They don't like having their face blown on either, before you go and try that too

My dog loves it when you blow in his face and if you act like you're licking him he'll just lick back. Therefore you know some asshole dogs.

I would do that too. How did they deserve it? Usually you do that expecting your dog that probably never bites would do that.

My parents told me as a little kid to never put my face next to a dog, even if it was friendly. It is pretty much common sense.

I agree, I constantly have my face right up against my dog. She loves to rub her face against mine and place her nose under my chin. A well trained dog doesn't bite unless there is something physically wrong with them.
