Myth Number Eight

Myth Number Eight: You should smack your dog if it defecates or urinates in your home, destroys your possessions, growls, gets on furniture, steals food, jumps on people, or is barking when you want the dog to be quiet.


Smacking a dog is a sure way to eventually turn your dog against you or other people. Smacking is oftentimes the beginning of creating a dog that bites people.

If you smack your dog around, one day your dog is going to bite someone. Most cases I have seen, the dog bites you or a family member. The bite won’t seem to be a justified bite when it happens, but you caused it. The dog will get blamed for your previous abuse. You can turn a perfectly normal dog into a vicious dog by such abusive training.

Shame on you! You know better!

Hire a professional dog trainer if you don’t know what to do!
