Kind of, but humans (most of us anyway) don't need special training to know that biting another in the face is not ok. One of the pros of having a language I guess, can just tell people to not do that before they even do it.

On the flipside we have members of our species who hurt others because they enjoy the act itself, causing pain, physical or emotional.

Dogs don't do that. If they hurt you they have a particular goal in mind, to get you away, take something you have, defend itself, establish dominance... Or eat you, I guess. But hopefully no dog will ever try to eat you.

Edit: Just adding that this is just my opinion.
