Who is this monster? If anyone EVER tried that with any dog I owned it'd be the LAST time they'd ever try that. Because I'd amputate their arms. I'm a doctor and I can do it!

Oh man, I got physically ill over the idea of it -- I just imagine all that tissue tearing away. UGH!

Sorry, this really made me laugh!Originally Posted by SallyAndTilly
I can't imagine someone saying such a thing! It's one thing for a mother dog to do this to her young pups. Quite another for a human to do it to a much larger and heavier pup.
I knew I'd upset some people, but wow. Thanks for all of the information (esp about the horse lip! I have never heard that.) and all of the emotion.
Next time I post, it'll be of a happier nature.
I would NEVER pick a dog up by their scruff. Now, I have been known to grab Weezy's scruff sternly when she's being ornery, but all 4 of her feet remain grounded.
It's OK to do this with cats, but I wouldn't try it with a dog.

My breeder knew I was having problems with my 6month old pug biting and she said if I was willing to do what she says for 2weeks, without fail, he would stop. I was to pick him up by the sides of his neck and look him in the face and growl at him and hold him there until he was submissive. I tried it a couple of times and decided it was not for me. My husband was very upset when he saw me do it. Well, he has stopped biting and it was not due to holding him up to my face by his neck. I just could not do it.

Wow, that's like picking your child up by the hair. Never, ever would I do that nor have I ever heard of doing it.
