Today, my manager came into the dog grooming salon I work at, lecturing about the importance of staying out of a dog's "bite zone". Right then, the dog I was working on bit me. FML

I think they did find the bite zone.

Isn't the bite zone anywhere around the head? How are you suppose to groom them if you can only touch half of the dog? I work at a dog daycare and I would think you should just keep a muzzle on the ones known to bite.

At a grooming salon, you never know which ones will bite. New dogs come in all the time..

26 - When is a dog's head half it's body?

Sounds the OP works at a corp/big box store. The "bite zone" they are referring to is where the dog can reach with its head, which mainly includes not only the head, but the neck/chest and front legs/feet - the front 'half' of the dog.

Was it your first day at work? If not, your manager should have given that warning on your very first day.

Trust me this is petsmart... I work there too They have this specific "safety topic" every couple of months... Well the only problem is if you groom or do nails or tons of other shit youre FORCED to be in "the bite zone" Seriously fuck petsmart Btw all managers that work there are mentally challenged people who can't work themselves

Dogs are the shit! I have a golden retriever :)

Take out the "the" from the first sentence and I would agree very much so!

Oh? You do now, yeah? Well, cheers. You are a winner, friend.

Haters gonna hate man :(

No one hates women. Women are scary.

That's the dogs way of telling you that you shouldn't have stopped grooming him :)

Dog feels Un-CUN-FORTA-BLE!

I thought this would be a pun since you spelt it wrong.

That dog totally did that on purpose!

I think the irony would hurt worse than the actual bite. >.<

Chocolate doesn't bite.

were you giving it a handy dandy fap and got too rough?

Seems that you were indeed in that bite zone. Maybe next time you'll learn

I've handled a lot of dogs and you'd be surprised on how drastically the "bite zone" changes depending on breed. It's really hard to tell unless you have experience with the breed exactly how far they can, and will contort themselves to get your hand. Sure, you should always try your best to remain out of what can be assumed is the "bite zone" for all breeds, but it's not always obvious if you're in danger or not. I've handled a dog that nearly flipped himself over on the doctor's table - luckily he just REALLY wanted to lick my face and get the treat I had, but if he had been going for a bite I probably would've gotten it.
