Is it ok to "spank" your pet when they are being naughty?

Wouldn't that be considered animal cruelty?

  • But she has a point. I bet you the difference in people who are offended by spanking animals is huge compared to the people who are offended by spanking kids.

    Both are wrong IMO. Hitting is never okay.

  • For our cats, clapping our hands and yelling "no" startles them enough so they stop.

  • I think a little smack on the nose is ok for a large dog...but thats it
    for the most part I think there are better methods that dont involve putting your hands on the animal like in that one show with the British lady who comes to homes and helps turn there dogs from misbehaving mutts to well bahaving animals using nothing but poitive reinforcement

  • OMG, give it up already, she is just starting drama. First it was kids and abuse because of "spankings" now she has moved to pets, like its not ok to spank our pets but it is ok to spank our kids.

  • If my dog does something wrong, we'll say "Paco, no!" in a firm voice. Unless it's pretty bad. Like getting into human food or trying to climb on the baby. We give him a swat on the butt (not that hard, just enough get the message across) or I'll tap his nose with my finger.
