WOOF 2019! Can't wait! 😊Re-thinking what you've learned about bite inhibition, That's what the superb Sarah Whitehead will be doing with us at WOOF! 2019.

Presentation: Biting the bullet

For the past twenty-odd years, I have specialised in aggression in dogs. I have seen hundreds of bites, to both humans and other animals, and have been told the stories of how they occurred and the history of how they happened.

I have seen photos of people and animals killed by dogs, and I have seen the results of attacks, bites, scratches and everything in between. I have asked many a victim to show me their injuries, and have seen more than my share of people’s bottoms, backs of thighs, arms, heads and hands, that have borne the brunt of canine teeth.

All of which has led me to ask questions, big questions. Questions not just about the incidents themselves, but about our beliefs around why they might have occurred and whether the severity of the bite is really linked to something that we all think we know and understand – bite inhibition.

In this talk, I will ask you to rethink what you’ve previously learned about bite inhibition and the connection to the critical developmental stage in puppies. I’ll also share with you the results of the research study that myself and my team have just completed. It’s brand new, and never been shared before: I guarantee it will get you thinking!
