Which Dog Breed Has The Strongest Jaw

      The breed of dog having the strongest jaw is actually difficult to determine as the strength depends on certain things like body weight and muscle mass. National Geographic once conducted an experiment for finding out what breed of dog has got the most strength in its jaw. A competition was held between a German shepherd, an APBT and a Rottweiler based on their bite forces. The Rottweiler displayed a bite force of 328 lbs, that of the German shepherd was 238. The APBT followed them at 235 lbs.

      Though, extensive scientific research regarding a dog's strongest jaw is rare, the national geographic study may prove that there appears nothing distinctive with the jaws of certain breed of dogs. Jaw strength can be an issue of overall strength, muscle mass and body weight of the dog. However, going by the National Geographic test, it can be concluded that the Rottweiler has the strongest jaw by far. Originating in Germany, the Rottweiler is primarily known as one of the oldest herding breeds. It is best suited as a service and working dog. The head is strongly built. Both the lower and upper jaws are also strongly built. The Rottweiler has a well-defined set of 42 teeth with scissor bite. The upper incisors closely overlap with the lower incisors.

This breed of dog can be highly domesticated despite its unlikely physical structure. These dogs are protective towards their owners' families and can make for excellent watchdogs as well as all-purpose dogs. The Rottweilers exceptional strength is a risk factor which must not be neglected. Breed experts generally recommend extensive socialization and formal training for the Rottweilers. They are extremely vigilant of protecting things and persons they love. They are really courageous and generally do not hesitate to go through danger for protecting their dear ones.
