Even if it promised adult-like mannerisms overnight!? I've discovered that most people only mistreat their dog when instructed to do so.
If you wouldn't do it to a child, then for heaven's sake don't do it to a dog. You're not the only dog-lover who has been brainwashed into believing the only way to train your dog is to scare it into submission.
As science now explicitly states, dogs share the same mental and emotional capacities as 2-year-old children.Perhaps it is high time we consider the way we're treating them.Flooding your dog with the smell of his own excrement isn't an effective training excercise.20) You've got your dog's fur caught between your teeth.Learning takes time, patience, unconditional love and consistency. Dogs are no more in the business of dominating their people than children are. Your dog grabs something, dodges left and pivots right: repeat performance guaranteed.
4) Growling has become a part of your daily vocalization. Paired with or without theatrical lunging, your dog's either going to blow you off or be scared stiff. 15) Clamp your dog's jaw shut to discourage barking or nipping. 17) "Pop" your dog's leash or hang him by his collar.Biting a dog or puppy to teach them to stop biting? 21) Electronic transmitters have become a permanent part of your household décor.While I do understand and accept use of electronic fences to portion off yards, the use of indoor shock transmitters to educate dogs is as unnecessary as it is cruel.While this collar is physically tough enough for even the most serious guard dog, it also features a metal skull flanked by spikes to really send a message to intruders that says, “Don’t mess with this dog!” Perfect for rottweilers, pits, shepherds, and more, this badass dog collar can make even the nicest pup look intimidating.For a regular day- to-day collar, use a fabric tape measure and measure by wrapping it comfortably around the base of your dog's neck, with enough room to fit three fingers in between the tape and your dog.
