All dogs have the potential to bite. Whether or not they will can depend on how you, the owner, raise and handle your canine. Dogs bite when they are afraid. They bite when they are in pain. And they bite out of a show of dominance. Proper socialization and training should be sufficient to keep most dogs from biting. Keep them away from stressful situations, raise them with affection, avoid playing dominance type games like tug of war, and you should have a well-mannered companion who will never bare his teeth in a show of aggression.
