Keep an eye on the interaction between your dog and son. I'm not trying to blame your son/say he is at fault, but the dog could have not wanted to play anymore and gave a lot of signals beforehand that it was done playing and the signals were ignored. A dog usually only bites as it's last resort. I'd suggest you look into reading a dog's body language, and have your son look into it too, so you both know what signs to watch out for. It could also be that this bite happened due to the dog becoming too wound up during play.

I'd also suggest keeping an eye on your dog/it's behavior. Is it showing anything else that's different or Is it still eating fine, drinking, eliminating and acting normally otherwise? If anything else is different, your dog might be ill which caused it to bite(My dog was testy once with other dogs when she had a stomach infection)-so you could take it to the vet and have it checked out if you feel anything else might be wrong.

Good luck, I hope it doesn't happen again and your household is peaceful!

Ama gave you some excellent advise. I'd also keep an eye on play time with your son and dog.

Hm, you might want to take him to the vet for a check up. Let the vet know what is going on(also let them know any other behavioral/other changes in your dog and when they started). If your dog gets a clean bill of health, it might be best for you to look for a dog behaviorist/trainer to come to your home and assess the dog/situation and work with them.

Yes, there is a very high chance that aggression issues, left untreated, will reoccur and escalate. It isn't clear whether the bite to your son did any damage, or the circumstances of the bite, but if your dog is also growling / lunging etc at people when out on a walk it is definitely time to consult a professional for a full assessment.

Hi well 2 things were you with your son and the dog at the time this happend?
And secondly you mention the dog bares it teeth and growls at other dogs when out on walk who walks the dog your son or you? you now must sit down and ask some seaching questions. As Kaos would say there is a trigger usually that sets the dog off. A healthy well socialised dog would not do this I am sorry that this has happrned. So first try and get as much info off your son as possible and secondly take your dog to a vet/behaviourist A.S.A.P as it needs to be nipped in the bud as a priority as the problem could easily get worse
Please keep us updated and good luck

thank you for the advice everyone shortly after the incident i brought my dog to professional trainers to see if it will help me, after the assessment i was recommended 20 days boot camp because the level of aggression my dog was showing during the first class. Well at boot camp i was able to check in on my dog to see the progress that had been made and was evan provided individual classes with me and my son, so we could be informed on the proper of techniques of handling my dog in public. after 20 days was done my dog stopped showing all signals of aggression. He is now the kind and loving dog, I always imagined he could be.
