"Mythbusters" or another similar TV show actually did a bite force test with a Malinois, Rottweiler, and Mastiff. Predictably, the Mastiff had the greatest bite force because of the size of the head and jaw, and the attached musculature. When we're talking about nothing but physics, size matters, so a larger male would have more bite force than a smaller female.
