What does "hanging a dog" mean for disciplining?
 
Over the weekend someone told me they "hang" their dog if they to discipline them for something that they did that was very wrong and needed to be corrected right away.

What does "hanging a dog" mean? Obviously I dont think it means putting a rope around his neck and hanging him from a tree - at least I hope not

It means what that cop did the other day on video. Lifting the leash until at least his front legs are off the ground, potentially all the legs, and holding it that way. So minus the tree, basically yes.

I believe it means using a choke type collar and lifting the dog off the ground, cutting off it's air supply.

Dominant dog collar stuff, pretty much an extreme measure...dog did something "seriously disagreeable!!"

Abusive and shows incompetence as a trainer/owner.

Its mean to calm and often force submission. Take your forefinger and thumb and press your carotid arteries shut. You can breath fine, but as "the darkness" closes in from lack of blood flow you'll see why it is calming, not painful. You also recover quickly. Choke = blood supply restriction. Strangulation = air supply restriction. You can permanently collapse the esophagus, but an artery will always spring back as designed. This is why only chokes are allowed in MMA fights. The forearm and bicep act to cut off blood flow but not crush the windpipe, which is why it is positioned as it is if you watch a fight. When someone gets "choked out", it actually looks pretty peaceful. And it is, till you wake up with a massive headache.

Hanging a dog is something you'd normally only see/do if the dog comes up the leash on you and its a for real "Dude I'm gonna kill you" type of dog. Almost never to blacking out. Only till the dog ceases the behavior.

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.
