DFrost In reality the actual amount of pressure is unimportant. what is important in the police world is; the dog will bite, sink the teeth to the gumline, and remain on the bite until commanded to cease. Anything beyond that is nothing more than, "mine is bigger than yours".

Slamdunc I was already chasing the guy when I called him from the car to assist. He initially caught him in the buttocks, he didn't get a good grip there and then went high for the left triceps taking the guy face down. The grip on the left triceps was full, calm and hard. The guy was really hammered and afterwards was extremely confrontational at the hospital and jail. He actually caught additional charges at the Hospital. He was extremely polite to me and Boomer.

Slamdunc As several have correctly stated, bite pressure is in direct proportion to head, neck and jaw size. The bigger the head, neck and jaw the stronger the potential pressure. It is also genetic and dependent on the individual dog. I work some smaller framed Malinois in our K-9 unit that bite as hard as a 20lb heavier GSD. That is because the dog is more intense and exerting 110% in every grip. We have shepherds that crush with every bite and are extremely intense. It is largely genetic, musculature and drive.

I would say that speed while increasing force on impact is not going to affect bite pressure, by itself. However, a dog that brings speed is naturally very driven and committed so the bite should be full and intense. I had a street bite Friday night with my GSD. Bad idea to get into a vehicle pursuit when a K-9 vehicle is right behind you. An even worse idea is to bail and run into a big field behind an apartment complex. My dog is trained to catch people like that. The bite was full, crushing and definitely left a mark and serious swelling.

volcano Tv only measured the grip strength, they didnt include speed which would equate to force. The speed of the dog running and the way it hits matters more than clamping strength. Jon Jones punches harder than Bob Sapp, even if Bob lifts more.

Anyway size matters. Everything else being equal the larger head is going to generate more force
Agree on all the above! Bill
