A violent man and this is made news. And aunts and violent although he would appear to be -- let's. Was arrested for cruelty to animals. And this happened in December 2012 the video is. I guess just being made public now in the saint Bernard parish sheriff. Arrested this guy I think it was back in January's is that -- -- it would not yesterday or anything like that. But that Jimmy Coleman chair of -- parry said it was probably. An incident captured on video. That it was. Beyond him is very graphic and disturbing and it could be disturbing -- some viewers so. As a result and running even posted on the website and see the point and that would basically. They -- one guy a video in this and another guy doing and who it begins with him. Picking up the dog by the neck and drag and it over to the garbage dog's name is tiger. So. After he does that he tells the dog look at trash and apparently trash strewn all over the house and he starts to hit a dog with a boxing glove on his left hand. -- name was tigers he continues to cry as she's hit any throws or across a room picks her up again and slams are down hard on her back. And the owners the video concludes with the owner telling the dog it is I dare you to get in the trash one more time. And it then apparently guiding get it because. He said. Allegedly that. You know what I can't believe that your arresting me after you shoot in the video saying I was just disciplining my dog and you know arrest -- -- it was me and arrest me because I beat my dog because -- soiled my house. And others and update the story apparently by the level and then it goes wanted to say that. This guy to beat the dog dropped it off and an animal shelter but now they're saying no it was actually. Come. Another pupil that he dropped off and the reason we want to talk about this is first off everybody -- cruelty to animals and secondly. Com. Pit bulls get such a bad reputation I think this brings up the point of is -- the owners that make -- bad dogs. And joining us right now -- Menino with JCM. Dog training -- I know you know about this and had to make you pretty disturbed. Yes it very upsetting to see the body. Inflict that type of cruelty. You know two and an animal that was obviously not aggressive it anyway. But it did not defend itself others in the cried try to get away. And just. You'll be intent consciousness -- it's absolutely. Unconscionable. -- just to be clear that it happened in December 2012 this guy was taken in the custody last month because I guess it took some time for the video to surface and to make its way to -- police department. When when as -- -- ACC a guide your -- trained German shepherds and and Berman partner was upsetting to me because he would actually almost appeared hanging their dog by a chain. And then to twirl it around over and over and over again and for the life of me and it can understand -- teach in the -- to do. Are those training methods still in use. They are. And they actually do have their application for instance if you are working. With a highly aggressive dog. And that you're trying to get control where it comes down to the dog is going to attack you. And you're gonna get involved or are you going to. Inflicted corrections that is going to prevent that. -- You would use something it to that extreme. In those circumstances. This particular situation where demand was. Corrected this dog because he had. -- something. Is it totally inappropriate. For the dogs learn in the president's big -- cause and effect. So any -- as positive or negative. That you. Due to a dog is going to register at that moment. So nosy. If the dog the -- digging in the garbage. Then. Realistically could garbage needed to act as the guitar at. For the -- to benefit. Did not. Dig in the garbage for instance is -- -- an application of something at some type of it teach you product. And it gave the -- bad taste when he went to Q on the garbage. That would be an effective deterrent is integrity large. Actually a lot of -- like -- and pepper. It and lord. That there -- products. Called bitter apple. In other anti. Q products that activate and suitable to turn it. The fact is dead. If you've become the deterrent. You'd you'd take the focus off of what the dog. Has done. And you look at the dog doesn't learn that the garbage is. Something not to do but don't do it in your presence. Because it's only what you heard there -- -- -- get in trouble. LIG in August in time what this does I think is important and a lot of people who want a trainer -- something they they know the first thing about it and what they're still one might be. Just the opposite and made might be discouraging the dog from doing what they wanted to rather than. Encouraging in any wind up with a vicious cycle going pretty jaguar opinion pulled -- you ever hit your pet to discipline it 80% are saying no 20% are saying yes -- did Jean -- a question when we come back.

Thirty years of experience she's with JCM dog training on does it do people not understand sometimes the dogs -- speak English. I'll -- absolutely. The the main reason that we can't. The number of students that we get is because they try to communicate on May. By the human psychological level with their dog it tries to explain things and I hear all the time the Bible I told the that he did it one more time -- second ago and so that the. -- and put in writing ninety I'm not trying to be silly but it like got a lot. Here's your third notice a and you gotta go what time my daughter train wreck if you have any questions or comments music -- 187203866. 8890 -- seven in I'm trying to work in the text as well as a phone calls so a region this tax. Please ask your dog trainer. -- -- About the best way to potty train a dog without spanking at a twelve week old boxer that is mostly potty trained still occasionally goes in the house. An excellent question we get asked that a lot. -- To house breaking is he catches the dog getting ready to go. And bring him where he needs to go. Once -- what's. Signs that they give you Jeanne. The whales circled yes now. There are a lot of people that -- -- dogs during the night. And when they let the dog out of the crate they take the dog directly outside. And and. Men after they finish right pardon. Bring them in after they finish right. Bring the men after they finished but I don't recommend that the -- be taken from the crate directly outside. Because you're you're not trying to. Teach the good. To use the bathroom outside as much as you're trying to teach the dog not to use the bathroom inside. So what I would like to do is to let the dog out of the crate. As soon as they get ready to squat. Go over to the -- industry -- -- -- that we didn't get them outside so you re directing the behavior. If the dog is having accident. And that you -- the dog after the fact even a second or two once it's out of them they they can't comprehend. That that's what Europe -- about. Let the connotation of Robin their nose and it is from expressed ranked. But once it's there it's too late they don't. Understand. That something that came out of them is what you're right about now. I we're gonna get back to more phone calls in the second -- Menino talking about training dogs and his. It violence or physical line action ever needed. We'll continue to conversation here on hold stayed there and I am a Scottish Terrier Max abundantly recently starred and was the monsters and instant. But anyway -- my ex wife and daughter did you know they wanted the dog but then didn't really pay attention to it in the dog was going all over the house so I started -- in the microwave timer. At about ten minutes and I'd take it out at those intervals and as soon as it would go and bring it back in. And eventually -- arguments in that would work for everybody but eventually -- learned to do his stuff outside and also I would put him on the grass not only concrete does. I think he's gonna have a mess for the rescue like 645 coming back on -- -- W. Tommy Tucker never WL a story very disturbing about it a man inviolate dead beat his dog with a boxing glove because he got in garbage in. We talk about dog training with -- Menino jays C and dog training in the business thirty years and go to let christening I twelve acres here on -- But -- you do one. And it's not what do you think when. But. -- he'd be the elite eight you cannot you Atlanta raised dogs do that. -- would -- applauded the news. At the top of these. Things. Element -- what I can barely an erroneous name -- maybe will. Late to get to a better sell it and try in the second Chico desperate and -- got a W out the morning. Hi bill is all well you say on the fact that you know what you got -- -- From one small. Okay what is the little people understand. What you're doing and what to -- him. You don't you don't wait till he's seven months -- It's a great point ability to the dog in you all -- 16 and so six weeks like the united -- -- it. You install it stand out that -- -- -- Wallace.

When you look at -- -- 000. -- win this small. Six mar six weeks. -- and -- No I don't know. -- tell right away to get back to -- that I completely agree with what you're saying I think a lot of time people think of Colin people have problems. Because they're neglect -- mentioned the situation with Max where nobody was paying attention to join. And finally I got him on a schedule where he would know that he had to go out and -- how much of a problem is that people not paying attention expect in the dog. As Chico just said in Vegas are when it's young all of a sudden that a year it's going to be fully. House broken and so forth and when it comes a pack mentality how do you establish affected you're the leader. A pack mentality with the dog. Is established. Through working with the -- natural instinct. There is an exercise that I'd do that is one of the most important exercises. And it's called -- -- Dog naturally. Will show possessions. All of our food. Toys. When someone comes in the door at the -- question to the door. Saying that he's in charge of the household. He's going to see -- at the door before the owner can even get there. Real quick did before we run out of time what about. There there the adage that you got to -- the dog up looking many guy and hold his gaze until he puts his head down have you ever heard any amount -- that true. That. It's intimidation -- daring is what some dogs do or what dogs do to other dogs. Having that applying means something to the dog from a humans is not quite as effective as other techniques that and are -- or use.
