Default Best way to hit your dog?

OK, first off, hitting your dog is NOT the answer. I work at a vet
clinic and we have clients that come in with the most uncontrollable
dogs sometimes. But you know what? If you have to resort to hitting
your pet, it is YOU who needs the training. You obviously do not know
how to control your dog. This is common with owners that own large
dogs. They continuously let their dog to pull them on the leash, take
the lead on walks, etc. What is the worst, is when I am in a room with
an aggressive dog and it is trying to bite me with the muzzle on, the
O tries to calm it by saying, "It's OK! Don't worry! blah,blah,blah!".
So to train your dog, abuse is not the answer, you will make them
aggressive and fearful of people. I had 2 short haired dachshunds when
I was little and my stepfather at the time would kick them in the ribs
and smack them across the face, and you know what? Eventually, they
started to bite his hand if it came near their faces. People could not
pet them anymore because they became so "Fear-Aggressive". So look for
a trainer to help you out. There are many methods to train your pet.
For example, when your dog tries to take the lead when you go for
walks, you need to be stern with him/her. Take the collar and move it
from the back of the neck to the front of the neck (right under their
chin), whenever they start to walk ahead of you, yank up on the leash
hard and let them know who's boss. They will begin to listen to you.
If this method does not work, don't be afraid to use an electric
collar. Most owners are afraid to use these because they think it
hurts their animal, well, it doesn't. It's just like receiving a
static shock when someone touches you. So there is my opinion on
striking your dog. I hope you don't resort to hitting your animal, it
only makes things worse, TRUST ME!

.........Oh I don't think so. I don't trust trolls much myself. You're the
bozo with a website who works in a clinic? Yikes.
