Leonard Zelig Posted January 12, 2010 Share Posted January 12, 2010 QUOTE (SoxAce @ Jan 12, 2010 -> 12:38 AM) Excellent point. Also it is good to discipline them (take them to where they pee'd/poop'd at tell them no/bad dog/etc.. and hit them, doesn't have to be super hard, but they know you mean buisness) so they will think twice. Dogs are obviously very smart. I have a 5 month old myself. Yes he still slips up from time to time, but not nearly as much as he used to. When he slips up, he runs right to his dog cage cause he knows he f***ed up.. I also credit my other dog too (older) who shows him the ropes sort of speak. I.E. where to do his business at outside (amazing that I can let him out at 5 months in my backyard with no fences, etc.. and he does his business and heads right back into the house not worrying about him running away, pooping/peeing in the neighbors yard) not to walk in the living room, etc.. I'm pretty sure any dog expert/trainer would tell you that you should never hit your dog. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
