Sometimes Pets Bite Their Owners
It's not uncommon for a pet to bite its owner but it is usually in a playful way that maybe gets a little rough or perhaps the dog felt cornered where it's a natural reflex.
My family used to have a beagle named Clyde, and boy was he a great hunting dog. He was a great dog all around but sometimes Clyde liked to do what Clyde wanted to and ventured off one day. The neighbor called and said he was over there so I walked over to get him and then he took off back to our house and got underneath the camper. I just wanted to get him back in the kennel so I could leave and when I reached under to grab him, I think he felt cornered and bit my hand for keeps and I still have a scar to this day. I wasn't happy about it, but I couldn't fault the dog for thinking he was cornered so from my experience, yes dogs do sometimes bite their owners.
