10. Hold on Tight
A dogís bite applies an average of 320 pounds of pressure per square inch. Contrary to myth, American Pit Bull Terriers (APBT) donít bite harder than other dogs, or even the hardest. According to bite pressure tests conducted by Dr. Brady Barr for National Geographic in 2005, the APBT actually “had the least amount of pressure” (at just 127 pounds psi!) when measured against a German Shepherd and a Rottweiler. A humanís average bite pressure is 120 pounds.The dog with the highest bite force?†The Mastiff, which clocks in at 552 pounds psi.
