    I dont smack my dog but I tap him using the tips of my fingers. I read about this technique. It is used to control dogs with a pack mentality... it doesn't hurt the dog.

    i find ours hates shouting, if ya shout too loud she s**ts herself but its more effective than tapping which she usually ignore, i dont like shouting at her but sometime when she is being a pain in the arse pinching the socks of the kids and running off she deserves it!

    Ive only got to open my mouth if mine have done something wrong. This usually sends them running but I admit ive slapped their bums a couple of times, not hard enough to scare them though.
    Ive found that both my breeds are quite sensitive so a telling off is normally enough.

    ... normally telling them off does the trick. they just look at me and put their heads down...lol
    you can tell when they do something wrong.
    they have guilt written all over their faces.

    Anyone that is misguided enough to physically abuse their dog, is asking for trouble. Dogs do NOT think as we do and the sooner people learn to understand this the better.

    A dogs initial reaction to being hurt is to attack. I thought the bad old days of Barbara Woodhouse, and rubbing dogs noses in their poo had gone!

    Reward based training, while ignoring unwanted behaviour is essential to good dog ownership. If I witnessed anyone hitting their dog I would reach for the phone and dial the RSPCA without hesitation.
