I’ve heard a few people say all physical discipline to animals should be avoided, and on the other side of the spectrum I hear some physical discipline is ok.
I would really like to know a correct method, or at least what other’s do.
I’ve always trained my dogs myself with basic commands and some “etiquette”. To correct any unwanted behavior, I would give them a sharp verbal correction or roll them on their backs. I’ve done this with my yorkie, husky, lab/pit mix, and papillon and have never had behavioral problems with them.
Is this an acceptable method?
