Check out these videos of dogs that appear to be mean and ferocious, but their bark is definitely worse than their bite.
These are quite funny, actually…
In the past 15 years, I’ve had 3 dogs — usually 2 at a time. And one thing’s for sure… they each know how to turn on their mean bark, growl & look when they want to.
It’s usually quite comical, because despite how ferocious they are trying to appear (usually to the other dog in the house at the time), it’s obvious that they don’t have a mean bone in their body!
Here are a few dog videos which illustrate this same thing…
#1 – Tiny puppy gets nippy:
#2 – Puppy bites at pants:
UPDATE: Here’s another classic one… Dog fights with his own leg!
Despite the humor in all of these, it’s important to remember that dogs are pack animals with instinctual behaviors. And their actions can be unpredictable at times.
No matter how cute some of this may appear at first glance… we should ultimately respect a dog’s natural behaviors and be careful not to put yourself, your children, or other dogs in harm’s way.
I like to help Dog Parents find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Dog Tips and Dog Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I’m a lifelong dog owner — currently have 2 mixed breed Golden Aussies that we found abandoned on the side of the road as puppies. I've always trained my own dogs and help friends train theirs, as well. Professionally, I worked at a vet and have several friends who are veterinarians — whom I consult with regularly. (And just because I love animals so much, I also worked at a Zoo for awhile!) I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). My daily motivation is to help first-time dog owners be better prepared from the first day your new puppy enters your home. I like to help dog owners understand what's 'normal' and what you can expect in terms of living with and training your dog — how to get through the ups & downs of potty training, chewing, teaching commands, getting your dog to listen, and everything else that takes place during that hectic first year! When I'm not training, walking, grooming, or making homemade treats for my dogs, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I've written over 500 articles for dog owners on this site!
