Why do dogs bite?

Dogs bite people, other dogs, and inanimate objects as an instinctive response to pain, fear, or anxiety. If you are holding a dog when someone else threatens or strikes him, you may be bitten instead. Dogs also bite if they sense a threat, either territorial or from a direct attack. Dogs will bite other animals to keep them away, or to establish their dominance. Sometimes dogs will bite when they are feeling ill, or stressed, as they have no other way to cope with the stimulus. Also, just as bored dogs may chase their own tails, dogs (especially lone dogs) may sometimes bite just to get attention.
