I want to know if anyone spanks their dogs when they misbehave?? Now I'm not saying Beat your dog or hitting your dog out of frusturation or anger but a simple spank to the butt lol? And do u think this is ok??

I dont hit them I dont see the point. I will however do a Cesar Milan style poke to the waist to get his focus or a Cesar Milan Style lol TSSSS but instead I use a Lound EGHHHEHHHH and that is all it takes. Once in a while I might grab him by his scruff but I dont ever plan on hitting him. Bernie is pretty good with vocal corrections and knows when to back off.

I was just about to post the same ?.. I feel bad when I spank My new pup Cali on the rear when she is bad.. Do you guys use a rolled up news paper or your hand. I kinda feel bad when I use my hand thinking thats what she will remember is my hand smacking her on the rear..

I'm asking cuz I saw the wierdest scariest thing! My cousin and me were sitting outside and this ladies pom pom got out and she's chasing it in the van and get's out picks up the dog by the scruff and starts literally PUNCHING the dog!! My cousin and me were like hey! IS this really happening??? Everyone ran to them but she took off. And my dogs to get a spank to their butt, when they have not listened to my commands and that always puts them back into place. She's a baby though I literally don't need to use any kind of force on her lol soon as she see's me coming she rolls over lol So I don't actually really get to spank her. NOw to make it clear I don't use any frusturation or anger when I do spank them because there is a difference to me IMO and this thread isn't for arguing either just opionions would be nice. :)

My puppy Alexa gets a loud No and a swat on her rear. That is only when she chews on something or pees in the house (having the hardest time with the peeing) and only if i catch her in the act. If i catch her peeing i also put her outside for a bit. Just as long as your not beating your dog or using tons of force, I dont see a problem with it. That is horrible what you saw. owners like that shouldnt have dogs.

When they were pups I did have to swat the rear once in a while to keep them on track... Never too hard or out of frustration but IMHO its like spanking your child... If you dont spank them too often when you do they open their ears a little better...

My dogs now only need an above average voice and they are on point... The little one (Shih Tzu) on the other hand.... lol j/k--------> maybe

i will give a swat on the butt, now they act like the world ends when i do the pitiful beast lol, but ya i see no problem with a spanking for KIDS or dogs as long as it isn't "beating" punching a pompom just isn't right ida punched the lady in the face for that!!!

Hmm depends entirely on the situation. A loud NO alot of times is plenty, a swat if its a reoccuring behavior that isn't getting corrected with the vocal correction, a nose thump seems to be the quickest way to get thru to a stubborn dog. A raised knee for jumping dogs... a flat out beating?? No, especially not for behavior corrections.

Now years ago I had a wolf hybrid who was a gorgeous HUGE girl.. We did great until she hit the year mark.. I would correct with a light smack, she would snap at me, and I would smack a little harder, she would snap, and I would get a little harder until she would stop challenging me. That was the only way to make her understand that she wasn't going to rule the house. I haven't had that issue with any of my APBTs, ever. Once they realize that I will not allow certain behavior everything is golden...with the exception of a few that enjoy pushing my buttons..lmao

Nah, I have found w/ dogs there are more constructive methods... I use to at first when they'd hop on counters but dogs are not kids, they're not spiteful & communicate differently than ppl.

It's just a matter of finding a common balance & communicating properly w/ the animal ;) (imo) (treats!!)
