No idea what you can do about it, MC can advise but she is also a dog lover so whilst it will be excellent advice it will be biased towards the dog which may or may not be the advice you need.
If it helps the dog stop biting, does it matter if the advice is biased?

Haven't seen any worms on EF, so, no wonder...

Re: My dog bit me!

Just to clarify that our dog has never bitten anyone before and he is around 5 years old, so I don't think the biting is an issue as I believe this occasion was a mistake, but one I want to avoid in future.

I take all advice and judge it on it's own merit. It must be said, however, that bias towards animals can be a refreshing change with all this cruelty happening all over the world. That said, I wouldn't stand by any danger towards my daughter.

Not in the least, but i suspect the advice given will be very much in the dog's favour and whilst it is not easy to accept, if the dog is going to be a potential danger for a small baby, the dog should maybe pack it's bag.....

Even a Pug will make a nasty hole in a baby and if you are not 110% sure, can you take that risk and more importantly how will you feel living with the consequences if the dog does decide to bite again ?

Your posts indicate that your very first instinct is to immediately give up on the dog. You disgust me.

No, i am the first to believe a dog/cat is not a 10 minute wonder but for life, but having lived with the consequences of a dog biting my daughter, i would have enormous difficultly with a dog that bites.

Nick did say in an earlier post that it seemed to be more accidental rather than deliberate, which is fine, but if it happens again, then that changes the picture rather; lets all hope it was accidental rather than anything else.

My younger daughter got bitten by a dog when she was 6 or 7 years old, not badly but enough to make her dislike dogs, still today, this was over 15 years ago.
This is a great pity - I was bitten by a small circus dog when I was a toddler- that was tied up to one of the trailer's at the back - and my parents made sure they exposed me to dogs immediately after, with great owners and totally safe dogs, explaining to me how to behave with them, eg not go to them too eagerly, slowly extend a hand and wait, etc. Sadly, fears of that kind can extend to life unless steps are taken quickly to reverse them- what a shame for your daughter. Sincerely hope she will get a chance to make amends with dogs as they are such wonderful companions.

What you also have to think about is, if the title of your thread was "My dog just bit my child"

What would you do then ?
It looks like he really is aware of such possibility.

Re: My dog bit me!

Thanks everyone for your posts. I just want to say that any issues with my dog's behaviour is my responsibility and is my responsibility to fix, although this was a one off and actually he is much calmer around our baby.

Re: My dog bit me!

Seeing a dog that has bitten an adult lying peaceful next to your beautiful child makes me anxious.
I personally don't understand how an animal can accidently bite but what do I know, the dog experts on here seem to have a better idea around accidental biting (do they cover that in dog training?)

Best of luck with the training, I sincerely hope it goes well.

Sometimes may be the result of changing your clothes. Because the dog's first reaction is to listen to, then is to see, and then there is the smell. So we go out after changing clothes to speak first, and then open, so it would have been better.
:msngrin:
Huh? It'll be a cold day in hell when I'll accommodate changing clothes to a pet's fancy.
And anyway, dogs have a much better sense of smell than humans so I'd hazard a guess that they smell the human behind the clothes no matter if the clothes are clean, filthy, barely worn etc.

To a dog, we reek
