Israeli army spokesman Avichay Adraee said that investigations into the dog attack - which occurred recently in the southern West Bank - had been presented on Thursday to Nitzan Alon, officer commanding central command.
"The extremely dangerous incident related to dog use reflects poor professional standards," Tamir Yadai, commander of Israel's Judea and Samaria division, was quoted as saying by Adraee.
Israelis refer to the occupied West Bank as "Judea and Samaria."
"The use of dogs as instructed and under the required limitations of the mission can prevent potential harm to people's lives," Adraee quoted Yadai as saying.
"[Yadai] suspended the use of dogs until further studies on the professional standards of their use are conducted," the Israeli army spokesman added.
Israel occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank during the 1967 Middle East War. International law sees both regions as "occupied territory" and considers Israeli construction of Jewish-only settlements on the land to be illegal.
