When I was young, we had an alsation labrador cross. We used to throw stones for her to fetch because she used to bite straight through balls. Of course this chipped all her teeth. They went bad and she had to have them all out(when she was 12). After that she had her food minced. She never minded the postman who brought things, but she hated the dustbinmen who took stuff away. Once she chased them up the street, with them hanging on the back of the cart. The dustbinmen said they would report the dangerous dog. As my mum said, what do you think she is going to do, Gum you to death.?
In this case the bark was certainly worse than the bite.
These days I would use the solid rubber balls that you can get for dogs, and dentastix, which all dogs seem to love.
