it was vetted at 1/12/2012

and i didn't do anything wrong past week i just hits it with a way that doesn't harm it if it did something wrong !!

Need more information before anybody can even begin to see what to do. I.E. - when you say "bite" - what do you mean. Broke the skin? Acompanied by growling/snarling/barking? what happened after the "bite" - what did you do? what did the dog do?

Yes you are right.

Now that I reread it, the OP may be a child, then you are right, she doesn't know.

I live a sheltered life, I didn't know people and kids still hit dogs.


Where does a child -learn- that hitting an animal is okay, it is not a natural thing.

harmony I always petted dogs for doing good , mostly on the nose.

harmony Dogs bite their own owner over no respect, fear, aggression, etc. When I had to do certain training I left a leash on the dog in the house to grab them quickly if I needed too, and directed the behavior I wanted, not always with treats or affection that came later. Do not strike a dog with your hand ok, I might hold their mouth closed over certain things. Do you know how dogs react to other dogs? If you can stand over top of your dog that is a big accomplishment. There was these people one time that had a blue heeler that would only let certain people do things in their house.

Meeka is right. You should never hit your dog as a punishment because the hands become associated with getting hit. I do not know how you correct your dog or exactly what it is you do to correct him.

This is just my opinion and I am a average pet owner so you can take my advice or leave it... Up to you...

The dog has now come to know that your hands are not a good thing. If you continue to hit the dog to correct him this may lead into a very bad situation for you and the dog... Since you have hit him I do not know if you will be able to change the association on your own.

I would suggest in your case I would actually bring in a trainer/behavior specialist to help you. This way you have some one who knows what they are doing and can help teach you how to properly correct your dog and change the bad association of your hands... I would hate to see or hear that you ended up with a serious bite and your dog having to be put down.
