    I don't know if I can... Although it's quite therapeutic for me about my bad babies! icon_redface.gif

    Animal studies have repeatedly shown that rewards are much more effective than punishment. So....no.

    Also because I'm a big softie. I cannot see animals suffering. It makes me sad icon_sad.gif

    stupid stupid stupid idea. dogs can't read. and they are unaware of what you're doing when you "shame" them. if you want to discipline them, reward them when they're good, and spank them when they're bad. rolled up newspapers or switches or choke collars worked miracles on my dachshund to the point where i could leave a steak unattended in front of him and he wouldn't touch it.

    I hope you're kidding about how you discipline your dog.

    I once scolded my dog for barking and running at someone walking on the sidewalk (scared the guy to death!). He was so ashamed and scared, he walked carefully around me for 3 days. Then we patched things up.

    Nah, I love my beagles so much, kind of hard to shame them.

    Zach (my youngest beagle) always wants to join the bedroom action (I guess he likes the idea of a 3some..lol) Wouldn't that make for a funny
    "comment" like some of those above. All the beagles are out of my bedroom during the events at hand...haha.

    I would never purposely shame my dog. I love her! She does get embarrassed too. It's actually surprising how much she understands. We didn't walk her during the heat wave this summer and she put on some weight. One of my friends told her she'd gotten fat and she was SOOO embarrassed and ashamed. I don't know how she understood, but I had to give get kisses and tell her she's just big boned. We're back to our regular walks again, and she lost the weight.icon_smile.gif

    Dogs are very perceptive, and can read human body language, facial expressions, gestures and tone of voice. I never physically punished any of my dogs, just a stern & slow (not shouted) "You're in big trouble" with hands on hips would have them hanging their heads with eyes downcast.

    A trick is to say exactly the same simple thing each time, and not embellish with full explanations, such as: "Well, yah did it this time! Didn't I tell you not to do that? Look at the mess you made! You're a bad girl!""

    All the verbiage may satisfy our own need to vent, but the dog doesn't understand anything except the angry tone. A simple, repeated admonition is more effective, because they'll more easily recognize that what they just did was wrong, since it will sound like previous scoldings. The same thing applies to all verbal commands given to a dog.
