Commonly used actions such as pulling the leash, screaming, shaking, shoving, etc.. because they believe it is the best way to get the dog to obey them. They think it’s the only way to gain the respect of the dog and get the desired behavior. Punishment is an action handler accompanying unpleasant behavior that makes the dog and that makes this behavior disappears or decreases in frequency. This decreases the likelihood that the behavior has been corrected (punished) is repeated in the future. yEs necessary? yHace missing a penalty to get our dog will listen and do what we ask?
