Worst Dog Training Advice You’ve Ever Heard

In our private Facebook community, we asked, “what is the worst dog training advice you’ve ever heard?”.

And let me tell you… some of the answers were unbelievable! (Some were terribly frustrating to hear as well.)

We heard some advice that ranged from inhumane to just plain weird and just about everything in between.

Unfortunately, there is SO much misinformation out there about how to properly train your dog. It’s sad, but we hope that our blog resources, podcast, and of course, 30 Day Perfect Pup class can help spread positive, science-backed information in the world!

In case you haven’t already, please download the Pupford App! It’s the best way to access quality, science-backed, helpful dog training videos and advice.

Our main goal with this episode (and with everything we do at Pupford) is to help spread truthful, science-backed information in the dog world. With all the misinformation out there, we all have a duty to share positive resources and help get the word out!

As was mentioned in this episode, bad (and mean) training methods have been in use for over 100 years… So it will take everyone’s efforts to help dispel those pain and fear-related methods and teach positive, science-backed methods instead!

Written by Devin Stagg

Since being deprived of dogs during his childhood, he and his wife decided to make up for it by having three dogs, two Lab puppies, and one grandpa Puggle. Meaning he is ALWAYS covered in dog hair. When he’s not busy training his dogs and/or picking up their poop, you can find him cheering on Tottenham Hotspur and the Cleveland Browns (yes, you read that right).

The proof is in the tail wags.

See what some happy pups (and their parents) have to say about Pupford!

Obsessed with Beef Tendons

Otis is obsessed with these chews. He literally leaves giant pools of drool when I pull one out of the bag. And we love it because it’s natural and keeps his pearly whites clean!   Otis

Perfect High Value Reward

My pup is not very food motivated at all but she LOVES these treats. As soon as I open the bag I have her full attention. We love training with these!! Krystal

These Treats are Perfect

These treats are perfect for training. Healthy product, perfect size and Louis loves them! Thank you! Carolyn

Loved by Dog Trainer

I'm a dog trainer, and I have yet to find a doggie client who doesn't love these little treats! And I love that I don't have to worry about running out - they're shipped right to my door regularly. I'm very happy with that treats (and so is my own dog!) Lori

Love at First Bite!

Bought my Pup these antlers and he instantly went to to Chow Town! He chewed on these for three hours non stop at first nibble. He continues to love these daily and satisfies his chewing needs. Thanks Pupford! Saundi
