Just curious to see what people do when their staffs have been naughty?

Its rare Jade misbehaves and when she does I find it really hard to tell her off - she tries to jump up and lick me while wagging her tail like a mad woman!

I would never ever hit her - I don't believe this would achieve anything! I had a massive row with my OH's sister when she smacked her (not hard) for hurting her leg when she jumped on her! I wasn't happy at all - it felt like soemone had hit one of my children and I could of punched her!!! :twisted: :twisted:

Bonnie and Max are sent to the sin bin which is basically outside. But now that we have a breeding kitten we have to keep them outside anyway so they just get shown what they have done and an argh! It is sufficient for both of them they are not that naughty.

I heard on another forum that when your dog is naughty you're supposed to pick it up and shake it like its mother would do as a puppy???!!!! Seems a bit extreme to me! All I have to do is lower my tone slightly and she knows shes in the dog house!

I wouldn't shake mine!! I was always given the advice to ignore a naughty Staff or a firm 'No'!
I don't like using 'aggressive' techniques. I don't think it suits the breed, their too sensitive!!

I disagree. A Alpha dog would discipline by pinning it to the ground with a grip on the neck.

I know people that use pinning on their dogs and I don't think it brings out the best in a Stafford. I use other techniques to reinforce that I am the alpha, pinning just isn't neccessary.

One day you may find they decide to pin you back.

All a Staffy wants is love and attention, ignoring them for 5 minutes is their worst nightmare!

I believe that if you treat a dog with agression that exactly what you will get in return from them.

The only time I would use agressive disipline with Jade is if she went for someone.

A firm NO or Who Done That is enough for Tess, then she'll either walk sadly away to her bed or sit and give me those really sad puppy eyes with a paw and when she does that i canny be angry with her for very long

If a dog attempts to pin you back then you are not the pack leader.

I understand the complexities of a pack. However, there is sometimes too much emphasis on this. My dog knows I am not a dog, it treats me differently to how it treats dogs. It knows that I am it's leader. I don't have to act like a dog by pinning it to teach it this.

I know people that act aggressively towards their dogs to keep them in their place. This is not needed in a well brought up Staff. They crave human attention more than a lot of other breeds and don't need harsh forms of punishment.

Does any other Staffy owner pin their dog when they misbehave?

I must agree with you whole heartedly there Rachel - I have never had to "put jade in her place" - shes got a brill temerment and i dont have to use agression in any way to keep her in check. There is far too much emphasis on pack order.xx

No I have never and would never pin Roxy, I have never had the need to. I feel that it is essential that you can teach a dog by verbal commands and body language, that way guests in my home or those that interact with Roxy can also give her commands when appropriate. I think my friends would get me sectioned if i told them to pin her down if she misbehaved.

I would never pin Murdoch. If he is naughty, then I ignore him and shut him away from wherever I am. Within seconds he is crying at the door to get back to me. I try and remain hardhearted enough to leave him, a couple of minutes is usually all either of us can take!
