I could absolutely get on board with that!

I'm having a really hard time picturing this in my head. I'm pretty sure it doesn't look the way I'm picturing it. It sounds pretty comical.

I saw a trainer hang a dog once for lunging at another dog on a walk. I saw that and instantly decided it was total abuse and that you should never under any circumstance treat a dog that way. It had never occurred to me that a dog might come up the leash and attack the handler. I guess in my fantasy world dogs hold their owners sacred. Oops. I guess that's one of those situations where you should never say never.

msstone My Misty was hung but too long so he blinded her. Cut the oxygen off to her brain and optical center. So she had a little vision as a puppy. We rescued her at 6 months. We had her on predisone for several years to allow her to have some light vision. Meaning she was able to see shadows. Ultimately she became totally blind because the MONSTER who had Hung her. I found a rolled up newspaper. Slapped against something solid worked for training all my GSD. The loud noise was enough to get their attension, it got to the point where all I had to do was pick up the newspaper or magazine. My GSD's were sit, stay, and what does the momma want us to do now. Eyes on me.

deacon Agreed! Hanging a dog should only be used for attack on handler! During the 80's this was an every day occurance with our Military Dogs as they were donated then and most were either alpha males or overly aggressive dogs.!

Bob_McBob FWIW, you can use a dominant dog type collar without hanging the dog. They're pretty much the same as a slip lead with a thinner cord and an attachment to prevent the collar from loosening. A lot of dogs respond to them with a very light touch, and they don't stimulate the dog the same way a prong correction does in some situations.

Leerburg has a detailed description of how he hangs severely handler aggressive dogs until they pass out every now and then half way down this page:

pache11 Never use hanging for discipline, only for aggression against handler.
