Default Do you ever irritate your pups?

I don't ever purposefully irritate my pups.

But my husband does. And I wonder if it's a bad thing?

I think it's scary because what if the pup 'snaps' or even accidentally bites you trying to get away?

But then I think, maybe it's a good thing because it really teaches them to physically tolerate so much more. For example, Smokey wouldn't let us pick him up. But since my husband kept doing it to him, now he tolerates it. And maybe it'll come in handy when he's older. Or, for example, Smokey HATED being touched on his tail or his behind but now he tolerates it and this might help us at the vet or if he's around a tail pulling child...
