For years, there have been debates about which breed of dog has the strongest bite. However, thanks to a scientific method based on the pound of force per square inch (PSI), we can now distinguish which breeds exert the most pressure with their bite.

This method provides precise data on the amount of pressure that a dog’s jaw can generate, although it should be noted that this maximum force can vary depending on different factors, such as age and sex, among others.

What dog breeds have the strongest bite?

Among the breeds identified as having strong jaws is the Turkish Kangal, with an impressive bite force of 743 PSI, the highest recorded to date. Originally from Turkey, this giant canine has historically been used to protect herds of animals from predators such as bears or wolves. Despite its intimidating appearance, the Kangal is known for being calm and protective of its family.

Another notable breed is the American Bandogge, with a bite force of 730 PSI. It is a dog that, due to its appearance, is considered one of the best guardians and is seen as a “dangerous” dog. It is a muscular and strongly built mixed breed.

Dogs need adequate socialization

Next is the Cane Corso or Italian Mastiff, with a bite force of 700 PSI. Originating from Italy, this breed has gained popularity not only in its country of origin, but also around the world, due to a unique combination of physical and behavioral characteristics. It is a large and powerful dog, with a robust physical structure that makes it an excellent guardian and protector.

Other notable dogs include the Dogue de Bordeaux and the Tosa Inu, both with a bite force of 556 PSI. Despite their imposing appearance, these breeds have evolved towards a more docile and balanced nature, making excellent companions if trained properly.

Even though they are dogs with a strong bite, raising them in a good way is the most important thing. It is essential to provide them with adequate socialization from an early age so that they become accustomed to human and social contact. Ultimately, beyond breed, education and upbringing are the biggest determining factors in a dog’s behavior.
