How Often Should You Hit Your Dog?
This is a question which crops up a lot, and the answer can be safely given as 'never'.
Many people get frustrated when trying to teach their dog, or at their dog's bad behavior.
The truth is you should never have to hit your dog.
If you use hitting as a punishment, even if it is at the moment of bad behavior, the dog will not associate the hit with the behavior, it will simply associate the hit with you.
Punishment for dogs always works best when it is used in the same approach that's used for training - a combination of reward for good behavior, and withdrawal of treats.attention for bad behavior. Neither of these require physical hitting.
As part of training, you may think that you need to show who is boss.
Remember, hitting your dog is abuse. The dog will associate the hit with you, and become fearful of you - it is no way to be a responsible dog owner, you should never hit your dog.
