No. Dog bite strength is proportional to the size of the dog. There are dog breeds larger than pit bulls. Therefore, there are dogs with stronger bites than pit bulls.

Nope. The "lock jaw" you are referring to does not exist, it is a myth.

There are 2 types of real "lock jaw" out there though:

1. An illness called Tetanus (

2. A comic book character "An Inhuman transformed into the shape of a dog by the terrigen Mists" (

So unless you want to give your dog tetanus or make him hang out in the terrigen myths, I wouldn't "train your dog to lock its jaw"

I have owned Pit bulls and other terriers. I have had this discussion with my best friend who also owns pit bulls.

We exhausted every avenue of "lock-jaw". Read every thing we could find about lock jaw and asked numerous Vets.

They all had the same ......No dog on this earth has "lock-jaw". The only case of a dog having lock-jaw was a dog with tetanus lock-jaw, it is very rare that a dog gets this type of disease , that is the only type of lock-jaw a dog may get. It's a medical condition , nothing to do with the actual "lock-jaw"

I hope this ed your question...there is no such thing as a dog with "lock-jaw". Its a myth.

Check out this site, its the one we found to be most creditable and he confirmed the "lock-jaw" myth
