Punishing the dog – wean the dog from bad habits. For every significant violation of the rules, the dog must be punished. And here is a very important question, which is specially referred to a separate topic: “how to properly punish a dog.” The point is that it is necessary to punish the dog, but it should be done only when the dog is really guilty and you caught it at the time of the violation itself.
Some owners make the mistake of punishing the dog after the very moment of the violation. For example, a dog chewed on toilet paper in the bathroom, after 2 hours you saw it and immediately try to punish her. In no case should this be done. The dog needs to be punished only in the process, when it would chew paper. The rule applies to a dog – not caught, not a thief.
The dog gnawed the paper and forgot about it for a long time, 2 hours pass and then, simply lying in his usual place, the owner comes up and punishes her. The dog has the wrong associations with punishment, it, in fact, does not understand why it is being punished at the moment when it just lies.
