Right on Nancy. Too often we try to correct a perfectly normal doggie behavior rather than teach an appropriate alternate behavior. Since you mentioned punishment, this organization along with AVSAB has released a position statement on the use of punishment. I think it deserves a thread of its own, now that you brought it up. LOL (see PUNISHMENT) if you would like to read their statement. I will post it now.
