I'd like to see a comparison of this creature's jaw and the dog jaw.... I wonder how their bites compare?

Well a leopard seal wins it out. A leopard seals bite force is strong enough to have 1200 pounds of pressure. A mastiff has a bite force of 550 pounds of pressure. A wolf's bite force is 440 pounds of pressure. So a leopard seal has the stronger bite.

I'm trying to relate.... but I've never owned any kind of handbag, let alone a serious one.

Unsure

Yes, caniformia in general have a similar skull, which is evidence of their current taxonomic placement. But here is a visual confirmation.

You can tell they are all different but have many similar features(mostly the teeth)
