I'm not saying your dog would, or ever will - I'm saying hypothetically. What do you think?
but my dogs wont strike out. they have had an incident like you described before, and they dont bite. they use vocal warnings instead and remove themselves from the situation. i said it was a personal opinion. and thats how i feel. i gave my opinions and even stated "personally" at the beginning of the post. this is going no where now so lets let it go. i train my way, you train yours... whatever. my clients are happy with the way i teach and thats what matters.

*shrugs* If you like. I had a client last year, the worst GSD puppy you've ever met, the biggest brat, he'd given four people stiches from mouthing! By teaching him soft mouth, and then not to, he's cured. So clearly, some methods work best for others - I just don't understand why you won't even discuss why it wouldn't be better even for someone ELSE's dog, if not yours.

i DID discuss it. i said i do not have a place in my book for having a dog put its teeth on me at any time. further discussion will not go anywhere. im not saying youre wrong, or im wrong, or youre right or im right.... im saying this is what i teach and why, and you said what you think. thats all there is to it.
