    I'm thinking that isn't the only way to train a police dog. Sounds very abusive to me.
    Different dogs needs different disciplines. My dog, "Rose" (Husky/GS x BC) startles easily and will NOT respond to being smacked. We isolate her to the basement while my other dog and I "play" outside. She gets that message first time, every time.
    Pyg (Lab/GS x Pitbull) understands if she really goofs up and I smack her on her rump.

    I would never ever slap or smack a puppy, ever. Puppies mouth, that's just the way it goes, I prefer a gentle way of training, there is never a reason for forcing your dog down or smacking them.

    It takes patience and time, sometimes more with some puppies. Withdraw your hand, and say No firmly, leave the collar/harness and leash on and give a short quick tug of the leash just as she opens her mouth (don't jerk though). Make sure no one is playing rough with her or playing tug o war. Also, make sure puppy gets enough exercise, you already know that though. Be sure to praise when puppy removes teeth/stops mouthing.

    Why don't the police dogs become "leash shy" from being jerked like that?
    If I knew anyone who did that to a dog, I would report that jerk to the humane society asap. That is NOT training, that is blatant ABUSE. This totally makes me sick. And, if I knew where this monster worked I would report it myself....
