What is bite inhibition?

Bite inhibition refers to the dog’s ability to control the pressure of their mouth when biting.

Canines bite for many reasons, and we all know that they do it often. Pups can bite when they’re feeling threatened or when they’re playing around. Teaching your dog proper bite inhibition can help keep them safe and others around. When your pooch has already mastered the bite inhibition technique through training, they’ll know how much force to use when they bite in different circumstances. In other words, they’ll know when it is okay to bite hard or soft to the subject of the bite.

Both positive reinforcement and negative punishment are commonly used when training your Fido bite inhibition. Both reward and punishment are used to encourage good behavior and prevent bad ones.
