Do you think that it's OK to physically discipline your animal under certain situations?

Hee hee Raynebow, your sister sends her dog to timeout? Now that's funny!! When I was little, I had a dog, and when he was bad, I would smack him lightly on the rump. My parents did too. He was hardly ever bad,but he would have his moments. I miss him. He's been in doggie heaven for 19 years. :-(

If you mean beat, my friend, no. If you swat with a paper or a small swat with the hand that is not so bad. I have chihuahuas and 2 mastiffs. I love them all. The littlest I have is maybe 8 ozs and the largest is possibly 170 lbs. Quickest way to get on my fighting side is to mistreat a child, a woman or an animal. As a woman who used to be abused I don't think anything is right about abuse. No wonder I love my dogs. They love unconditionally.
