gowen No verbal drama during correction. If Dolly does not understand the reason for correction, she will flatten her ears and try to bury her head in my legs or arms and that is how I know I've given a poorly timed correction or am doing a bad job of training her.

All other corrections she understands and, tail wagging, gets back in the game.

LoveOscar Oscar screams and screaches bloody murder like he is being beaten and tortured. Anything else, he is as silent as a feather. He is still opening up to us, and is starting to whimper and whine more, and scream much less. Like he was taught him screaming meant what ever was being done, no matter how rough or gentle, would immediately cease. He screamed and people let go. Was fun training him out of that one. :-/

Sasha does this or she'll just get down right sassy lol It gets done, but she lets you know she's not pleased.

Is Your Dog Dramatic During Corrections?

My sable gsd talks back to me but he does what I tell him. Sometimes he's funny cause if he's trying to get my attention and I ignore him he will do something bad like chew something he can't chew. But now that he's older is getting better

JakodaCD OA Masi is a silent girl most of the time, if I give her a correction, she's like "oops ok won't do 'that' again"...The only time she is REALLY VOCAL, is when I am using the blower on her, she is very compliant with it, but my gawd, she absolutely SHRIEKS, SNIVELS , and sounds like I'm killing her,,I'm surprised my neighbors haven't reported me LOL

Caitydid255 Freyja talks back when being corrected and bounces back without a problem. Angus on the other hand acts like you've just crushed his soul. He gets so upset, whines, and sulks. The dramatics are not just when I scold him, if I scold Freyja he will act as if he is the one in trouble. Although I've learned over the years that he puts up a fuss only to make you feel bad, he loves to push his limits and will continue to drag out obeying a command even when he gives you the depressed face. He is such a snake.

Is Your Dog Dramatic During Corrections?

Sometimes I'd like Jerry to be a little more vocal! I like the little noises he makes. He'll groan about things that truly hurt him, like getting his ear cleaned. The techs at the vet's office cleaned his ear one day and they asked if they could muzzle him first. I told them to go ahead if it made them more comfortable. They were amazed at how good he is about even though it obviously hurts. He just groans, sounds kind of like a cow, but doesn't try to bite or get away.

He'll sometimes whine if he sees someone or something he really wants to play with, like a toy or another dog, but that's it. Watching anyone playing with a ball he can't play with drives him nuts and he'll whine the entire time.

Other than that, he's pretty quiet.

RocketDog Mine has never "sounded" either except for one his breeder gave him (he was 7-8 months and I had not introduced formal corrections until that time), which I think was partly surprise, and one last night with a prong that I might have delivered just a tad too hard--or again, it was surprise. Usually, he responds and recovers quickly and without drama.

valb I'm glad to find out I'm not alone. My first two GSD's
were pretty much stoics as far as pain, and really
corrections were so minimal that I didn't get any then,

Now, however, with adopting a 2 year old that I have really
no idea of background, I'm discovering the OTHER side.
Lillie did REALLY sharp, high-pitched yipes with just small
corrections. Made me want to hide, I got a few dirty
looks and thought man these people are going to call the
rescue and tell him I'm abusing her! Thankfully, she learned
really fast (of course!) and it's been a couple of weeks since
any noise of that kind.

This is from a dog that screamed bloody murder just getting
her temp taken at the vet's!
