Gunner "bit" my husband...*eyeroll*

Okay guys, I LOVE my husband. But....he is a WIMP. I mean, like super whiney and wimpy over the smallest injury. That being said, he is convinced that Gunner bit him tonight while they were playing. Those of us with dobermans all have our share of battle wounds so I am not concerned about this in the least, but I could use some help convincing my hubby that this was purely an accident. He wasn't raised around dogs and isn't very good at reading them. He is now acting concerned and blowing this WAY out of proportion. What happened is that Gunner and hubby were playing with the kids. This is a nightly ritual. They run full speed around the house playing tag (thank goodness we have a big open house!). While Hubby runs, Gunner is always right on his heels just following along. I was watching the whole thing and my husband suddenly stopped running and Gunner jumped up in his excitement and caught the edge of my husband's arm in his mouth. He did NOT bite down and to me it was clearly a case of teeth accidentally hitting skin. Hubby had one single mark on his skin and nothing else. PLEASE tell me I'm right in this. I mean Gunner has never shown a single sign of aggression towards us, and like I told hubby, if he was really trying to bite, you would know it! Opinions???

Hey Olivia! Haven't posted with you in a while, missed ya.

The concern I have is that of your husband freaks out and blames your sweet and exuberant pup over "biting" him, I wouldn't doubt if he threatens to get rid of him if he hurt or "bit" one of your kids in play, since you said they run along with him. Your DH is the one riling him up and bringing out play drive, it's so not fair to blame the dog. Since he won't listen to you, would he listen to advice from a professional trainer?


Did you used to train police dogs with an ex husband or with this guy? I think you mentioned something about training them so that's why I'm surprised he's reacting the way he is.


Hugs to Gunner!!!

That exact same thing happened with Roxy and my oldest boy. My hubby said precisely what you said, "If she bit you, you would know it!"
He had a single, red dot that didn't break the skin. Now my 7-year old refers to the incident as the time he "elbowed Roxy in the tooth!"
One day, when he gets over the shock and pain, your hubby will say the same thing

I would say over-reaction for sure! That was obviously not a purposeful bite. Maybe just pretend to work on less "mouthy" play infront of your husband so he at least thinks that you're fixing the "problem"

Has your husband every stubbed his toe, bumped into someone else, or hit his knee on the coffee table?

You're right, he is over-reacting to some rough-house play that he initiated with the dog. My big red male, Dexter, actually broke my nose when we were both going for the ball and his big dinosaur noggin crashed into the bridge of my nose.

And it never entered my mind that it was nothing more than a goofy mistake. I have no doubt that your dog is bonded to your family, and would protect them if the occasion arose. It could happen again, because accidents do! So he needs to work thru his fear of the dog and appreciate his noble protector and playmate. And forgive him for the little mishaps of life!

Don't blame Gunner. If he really bit your husband he'd be bleeding and torn.

I wish I had a nickle for every bruise, scrape (even had a black eye) Bacchus has given me. Not about aggression but these dogs play with enthusiasm and you need to accept that.

Don't tickle the dragon......

Thanks guys....I KNOW it was an accident. I guess I'm just stunned with how my husband reacted. I know it hurt, but seriously...get over it He loves Gunner and knows that he is my third child, but it annoyed me that he really thinks it was intentional. Heck, Gunner gave me a massive black eye last summer while we were playing and I never thought anything about it. I laughed it off as another battle wound.

Dugan split my upper lip right down the center with his big dober noggin. Was not intentional at all but same situation. We were rough housing in my parents back yard and I had him totally wound. He laid down and I plopped right down beside him...and basically the "zoomies" happened and he got me right in the face. I bled so much I thought my nose was broken. Probably needed about 3-4 stitches but, fortunately, it was a clean cut so I took a chances and just kept it "bandaged" if you can call it that. Healed perfectly. I looked like I had a white mustache for like 2 weeks though.

Good boy Gunner, didn't clamp down:
He was running around fast & excited...breathing with his mouth open...just unfortunate & helplessly collided with hubby.
Tell the big baby (of the house), to suck it up...LOL.
- I got a puppy nose poke in the eyeball last night, playing on the bed, with the lights out...stuff happens sometimes, & we all learn from the mishaps

Juno ran full speed and punched my boyfriend in the balls... He dropped and was crying. "I hate you Juno!! Uenshskemshism she hurt me!!"
If you go look on Juno's Facebook page, they have cuddly pictures andhe loves to give her kisses. Right after, he ended up saying "Daddy loves his Juno."

When these dogs get all riled up and playing with the family, I'd expect a little horseplay. Nothing to worry about unless the humans start showing their teeth!

Tell him to go put on his big boy pants and quit whining! If he wouldn't get the dog all wound up things like that wouldn't happen. He sounds like my six year old daughter!

My DH had many war wounds from Dax because he used to rough house with her all the time. Once she caught him with her nails across the cheek and another time she caught him with her teeth across his face. He had a lot of explaining to do at work and he was not very happy. But I continually told him this is your fault for rough housing with her. Live with the consequences!

Ha, I know right?! That was my thought exactly. He's whining to a woman who has had two massive shoulder surgeries and given birth twice NATURALLY. Sorry if I lack sympathy

They were cuddling on the couch this morning so it seems all has been forgiven, although maybe now hubs will be a bit more careful when getting the dobe so excited

I've had so many zoomie wounds from our female and I wouldn't trade them or her for the world! Men are such babies!! Our girl loves to play tag with her teeth. The ones on the butt cheeks really sting, but she's so funny when she turns her ears back in full out play mode and bites the hubby on the butt. It's all in good fun though. I love dobies!! I'd get rid of the hubby before getting rid of the "kiddos". Hahaha!

LOL! Well if that's a bite, then my husband has been viciously attached by both of my Dobes. He wrestles with them and inevitably teeth meet skin. No bites, of course, just mouth open, swing head around and collide with some body part.

While my fiance has never accused Elka of biting him, he has accused her of growling. We had a....discussion....just this week when he said she growled at him, but (to me) was clearly "talking", in the way that she always has, and that we have "discussions" with and encourage.

lolz

If I showed you my arms sometimes, you'd think I was one of those emo cutters or whatever they're called. Sometimes I forget to put on my armor before rough play (usually a thick hoodie) and most of the marks I get are from his claws, with an occasional tooth mark here and there.

Tell him to suck it up buttercup.

or like the late great Bernie Mac would say, stop crying and do some push-ups.

Don't like rough play...then don't rile the dog up...it's not rocket surgery homer, doh!

He wasn't raised around dogs and isn't very good at reading them. He is now acting concerned and blowing this WAY out of proportion. What happened is that Gunner and hubby were playing with the kids. This is a nightly ritual. They run full speed around the house playing tag (thank goodness we have a big open house!). While Hubby runs, Gunner is always right on his heels just following along. I was watching the whole thing and my husband suddenly stopped running and Gunner jumped up in his excitement and caught the edge of my husband's arm in his mouth. He did NOT bite down and to me it was clearly a case of teeth accidentally hitting skin. Hubby had one single mark on his skin and nothing else. PLEASE tell me I'm right in this. I mean Gunner has never shown a single sign of aggression towards us, and like I told hubby, if he was really trying to bite, you would know it! Opinions???
One of my neighbours announced to the village that Toby had attacked / bitten him. (we are in a land dispute with him just so you know why we don't get along). Of course he was getting quite a bit of attention, until my son who was there to hear his accusations stood up. Looked the guy up and down and said amongst a few other things.

That if our Doberman had attacked him, bitten him, he wouldnt be stood whinging about it, he would be in bloody hospital.

5 stitches to my lower lip, a broken nose, and I dont know how many nips, bumps and scratches and not one can be laid intentionally on my dogs.
