Thumbs down Spanking Pets?

Well, there is a thread like this on another forum that I visit daily.... and i'm shocked to see that there are actually some people out there who still believe that it's fine to use the "old school" methods of dog training, in other words, I am shocked that in this day and age, some people still hit when they do something wrong. I am VERY against "spanking" pets, as I believe that there are many other, much more effective methods of dog training. I feel that hitting pets when they do something wrong only leaves them confused, and can even potentially cause fear aggression.

So, how do you all feel about this?

Growling can do more than a spank !

I smack my dogs on their butts to get their attention, or to play with them. They seem to know the difference, based on my mood. So you can call me a little old-school. I don't take them over my knee and paddle them, but a swat on the ass when they're fixating on the cat? I've done that.

I am 100% against using this kind of physical punishment for any reason. It serves more to stroke the ego and satify feelings of anger for the human than it does to teach the pet a dang thing.

I just don't get why people can't just use the brains that they were given....

Yes!!!! Have you seen this little girl? She NEEDS to come home with me!!!!
I used to get the odd one through class every now and then and then I ended up taking one home after a breeder neglect case. I've been in LOVE with this breed ever since. I've never met a more comical, silly, ruff n' tumble and DEVOTED dog in all my years. I'll always have a griffy to love.

Because they dont know any better. Thankfully, yall worked me over, and saved me before it was too late .

My entire family uses "old school methods". Shoving their face in the pee, spanking and the handy dandy rolled up newspaper. I've tried over and over to tell them what they are doing is useless but they know best (see where I get my attitude from ) There are better more efficient ways to "train" and create a strong bond with you. And I've realized that once you create a strong bond and leadership all you will need is a simple verbal correction.
