#BSLbytes 4

Posted by Chantelle Mackney on

BSL supporters claim there is something inherently different and more dangerous about certain dog breeds. Increased bite strength or ability to “do more damage” are often cited as reasons to restrict certain categories of dogs.

Research does not support this – the few studies that exist indicate that bite strength is correlated with size of dog, and aggression with individual genetics and environment. Most bite strength numbers are problematic and based on weak or anecdotal data.
