Abusive and shows incompetence as a trainer/owner.
Depends on the dog. Hanging because he's heeling crappy.. sure thats abusive. Hanging because he's trying to maul me. No, its training. When you have a serious dog on the end of a leash, about to seriously hurt you, show me a way to deal with it otherwise.
