Default Puppy Training question

Has anyone ever heard of a trainer telling someone to put there foot on a puppies throat to teach it not to bite on your hands?

To finish my comment.You just keep working with them..My puppy would bite playfully.so they told me to set in a chair and gently put my foot on his neck and repeat as much as you have to "NO BITE
Is this crazy or what?

The dog trainer might. I know of people who have been told to put a choke chain on their dog and hold its front legs off the ground till it starts to loose consciousness. Or to hold your dogs head under water to stop them from digging holes.

There is nothing to stop anyone from setting up as a trainer.

OMG your kidding?
I always train my own Dogs because I know what I want them to be.
But I would never Hit them,Kick them or harm them.
But I would never atempt to train someone elses.
I did not know anyone could say they was a trainer...

I admit at this point that some of these methods seem like they 'might technically work'. But they honestly just seem like 'cheap-shortcuts' to kinder-alternatives that work just as well (that I -heavily- prefer....)

Ok let me see if i understand, sit on a chair and put your foot on your dogs neck...

Does this mean like how you would stop them from moving forward (blocking) or to literally put your foot in the throat and press....not great directions either way...

Yup i have put my foot out and stopped my dog when sitting, but i let THEM walk into my foot and they just turn around...not putting pressure on the dogs throat...

WEIRD
