WOW that is downright wrong. That guy should NOT be training dogs. I cannot believe the people there just watch all of this unfold. Maybe they didn't feel comfortable telling him anything to his face so they told someone to hide in the bushes to film and chose this route. Either way, there is no way my big mouth would stand by and let that happen. I would refuse to be a part of any sort of group training if there was member blatantly abusing their dog.
Using fair and well timed corrections to get a dog to comply is one thing. This man is not using well timed corrections, he is chasing his dog down, when his dog finally stops running he is beating it until he feels it has felt enough pain and his anger has subsided slightly. This man is punishing out of anger.
He either could care less about how dogs fundamentally work as far as timing with corrections and rewards go, or he is a complete moron. Either way I am glad he got pulled from the FCI. I hope he takes a very long and hard look at himself and the way he trains. If this is what he feels is appropriate in public, I fear for his dogs lives in the privacy of his home...
Absolutely disgusting behavior.
