Default Dog Aggression or Just Testing?

Hi everybody, I was just wondering if any of you have ever come across a dog who grabbed your arm and then held it in his mouth waiting to see what you would do? I have had this happen so many times and I feel that the dog is just checking me out to see if I am friend or foe. People think I am crazy to let the dog grab my arm or hand, but I tell them that the dog is just checking me out to see how I will react. I usually let them hold my arm for a minute or so then ask if I can have it back, but I am sure most people would probably pull away real quick, which excites the dog and then the dog goes on the offense and bites them. I feel most dogs don't want to bite, but due to past experience with other people, they can feel threatened and therefore they are not sure wether they can trust someone they don't know. Anyone else have any comments on this subject?
