Use Fear As A Way To Discipline Them

Some people think that rubbing their dog’s nose in the carpet when they’ve made a mess, or screaming at them, or even threatening them with a newspaper will get them to behave. Do you really want to give your dog trust issues and make them afraid of you? You can discipline your dog without doing any of those things. Being calm and assertive is always the best way to discipline your dog. Plus, if they have made a mess, remember that it can take time for them to learn not to do it in the house when they are young. If you’ve left them alone for too long, it could even be your fault.
