It has been a long day. You get home from work, you manage to get something on the table to pass for dinner, you’ve helped with homework, put the kids to bed and now you can finally take a deep breath and sit down on the couch to rest. You see your dog approaching you with an eagerness that makes you think to yourself how much you love your dog and how you are about to share a special cuddly moment together. You go to pet him and BAM!…. the little stinker bites you! Well, now you are shocked (and probably a bit angry). You start wondering why in the world your dog would bite you, his beloved guardian. You tell your spouse, you tell your neighbors and friends. And, well, everyone has an opinion. Some people tell you your dog is trying to dominate you, whereas others tell you your dog is bipolar and needs to see a shrink (a.k.a. veterinary behaviorists).
