To be fair, it does work sorta... Well atleast it did when I had to. The husky in my signature was a rescue. And he was a real problem.
We rescued him from a neglectful and abusive home. He did not like people, he did not listen, he was a resource guarder... You name it.
One morning I woke up and came out to say good morning, and he decided I was too close to one of his toys and he lashed out and bit my face. I still have a scar on my nose from it.
While he was attached to my face, I had to put him in a choke hold and proceeded to have a "come to Jesus" meeting with him. Believe me, after that, pack order was clearly defined.
He turned into a great dog. He just needed to know that someone bigger and meaner than him was in charge, and he settled down...
...Then I went to the hospital and got stitches
Anyway, point being is that some rare dogs do need a good ass kicking to settle in and behave. I've never had to do it again, and I certainly did not start the confrontation. But I did finish it, and sometimes that is what it takes to give a dog a chance to learn to be good...
