One of the chief factors in determining what the dog does and doesn’t like is the dog’s genetic biting style. Meaning, what the dogs do with their mouth when they’re biting is inherited behavior. We can manage this behavior but we’re not going to change it too much.
Under stress dogs tend to do what they want to do genetically when it comes to how they use their mouth. We want to be able to tell what they like to do with their mouth so we can tell if we’re reinforcing them or stressing them through your own behavior.
