Oh I took it as putting the dog in its place.... like when he does the "dog nipping" to show dominance I use that on my big boy when he gets over excited and it gets his attention. But honestly whether I do that or just get super happy to get his attention it will never cure him...only gets his focus on me lol. Since hearing your advice on being happy I have decided to do that...less headache.
lol... If you do the nip and follow it with an instruction "hey do this instead" its actually no longer a correction (as long as you're not doing it really hard) it becomes a redirection..which is actually a great tool!
Ceaser is actually doing this some of the time...but there are times when the dog is over threshold that he escalates it to the point where he's hurting the dog so then its a correction.
I'll occasionally tap my dogs or touch them to get their attention which I then follow with what I want... i see no issues doing that
