Across the world, dogs are one of the most common types of pets, and it is no wonder why. Dogs are known for their incredibly friendly nature and their natural loyalty. However, despite the fact that most dogs are peaceful animals who will not become aggressive unless provoked, they do possess the ability to bite. The biting power of dogs is different depending on the type of dog. The strength of a dog’s bite can be measured by its PSI, or Pound Per Square Inch (PSI). Below is a list of dog breeds with the strongest bites.
The Malinois is a medium breed dog that originated from Maline, France. The dog has a strong sense of smell and for this reason, is often used by law enforcement forces as detection dogs. They are very intelligent dogs that can be trained easily. The bite force of an adult Malinois is 195, meaning they can apply 195 pounds of pressure to one square inch per bite.
9. Chow Chow
For over 4000 years, the Chow Chow (pictured above) was developed and bred in Mongolia and later adopted by China. Due to their voluminous coat, Chow Chows require frequent grooming. As Chow Chows can be difficult to train, they are not a recommended breed for first-time dog owners. The Chow Chow has a bite force of 220 psi.
