What Not to Do While Dog Training!

You have probably seen over a thousand articles on dog training. Everything from "How To's" to "5 tips on..." and you get the idea.

  Dog Training Tips : The Worst Dog Training Advise You Can Get I am in several different pet related Facebook groups in which I both take part in on a daily basis, as well as admin a few of them. In doing so, I often see some of the silliest advice when it comes to dog training. Not even just silly advice, but some of the worst advice I have ever heard. So today, rather than give you advice on training, I thought it could be interesting to share some 'what not to do's' when it comes to dog training.

Q - My puppy bites my hands a lot, what can I do to stop that?

A - Bite him back - show him how it feels. A - Grab him by the neck and slam him to the floor to show him who's boss. A - Slap him on his nose.

Q - My dog won't stop peeing on the floor, what do I do?

A - Go over to the spot he peed, and pee over top of it to show him this is your territory. (really?) A - Rub his nose in his pee, yell at him and throw him in a crate or outside. (cruel much?)

Q - I am going to re-home my dog, I don't think it's fair to him that I don't have the time to spend training him.

A - You are a horrible person for re homing a dog, you're lazy and you need to keep trying!

Q - I need some tips on using a head harness for my dog to help with leash pulling

A - That is sheer laziness. Try training your husky instead of taking the easy/lazy way.

Q - My dog jumps up a lot, help!

A - When they jump, grab them by the neck and slam them to the floor to show you're pack leader.

Q - My dog pulls on the leash, what can I do?

A - Use a shock collar.

My thoughts on these?

First and foremost - no matter how silly the question might seem, when someone is asking for help, that means they are reaching out, trying to do what they can to better the situation with their dog. SO why not give helpful advice, even if you think the answer to the question should be obvious. Note: The questions and answers I posted above are very real, and from very real people.

What is some of the silliest, or outrageous training advice you have gotten? Share with us in the comments!

Rear Bench Seat Cover

I have purchased several seat covers from area pet stores and have returned them. I love the one I got from 4Knines because it was easy to install, it's shaped just like the bench seat in my car, its nice looking and it doesn't slide around. I have a large dog and a medium sized dog and the cover stays put! Thanks, 4Knines!

Seat cover

We have 2 big dogs and an hour and a half trip to the lake house. The lab sheds black hair everywhere on the tan leather, the Goldendoodle but he has long nails and left little holes in the seat of the car I had before. Got the new car and immediately ordered your cover, it came in quickly, was easy to install and saved the new car lots of damage. Love it! Recommend it highly!

Very well made

Recently purchased the waterproof bed liner. Very happy with the quality workmanship and that the material is soft and doesn‰Ûªt make noise when shifting positions.
