The difference between dogs and children is comparing apples to oranges ! I would never spank a two year old , nor spank a dog !

I've done that also. I still do it from time to time.

My dad, on the other hand, used to beat the dogs for peeing on the floor. Stuff like that is abuse.

Do not intentionally hurt your dog unless your are ready for them to protect themselves. I've seen people hit their dog, get bit, and then beat them even worse for biting...

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.

Ditto- absoultly unacceptable IMO in this day and age with so much information on more effective and dog friendly methods/

I'll swat, lightly, but its to get her attention. In fact, I'm usually just swinging my hand against the tips of her ears. So its not meant to be punishment, and, having done it to myself, it doesn't hurt. Its just to get her to stop fixating on something. But that's definately not spanking. And her reaction tends to be "Huh? What? Oh? Yes?"

I don't believe in spanking a dog. I do think there are RARE situations in which a hard swat might be in order, but, as I've stated before, physical punishment is the nuclear bomb of dog training . . . it might be in the arsenal, but you never want to use it. But repeated hitting? No. Never.
