    DefaultI feel so bad now...

    I know I did wrong and somebody should hit me back...

    Molly was digging a hole, I went and I told her no dig. I turned my back for 0.25 seconds and she was digging furiously. I grabbed her collar bopped her on the nose and stared her right in the eye and said in my sternest voice "NO DIG!!!". She came right at me wagging her tail and licking like I did absolutely nothing to her, but I feel bad. I know I didn't beat her or hit her hard but that's not the way I should have corrected her

    Don't feel bad...

    My sister bopped Zoe in the nose for doing OB/GYN;proctology. Zoe was a bit stunned, but has never done it again to my sister, and very rarely to others now.

    I personally don't think you did anything wrong. It's a great correction. She was trying to make up to her "alpha" with the licking and everything. Stand your ground with her. She quit, if you're consistant.

    I kinda laughed afterwards thinking about it because when I bopped her, I guess since her mouth was shut it made a kinda *pop* noise. It made me chuckle.

    As of right now she's listening to every thing I tell her...even "come" which she's still not 100% on (that's been a challenge for us)

    Good, keep it up. Now that you've got her attention, keep it up.

    Oh, don't feel bad! I've bopped Angus on the nose a few times. He's like a mule: Have to hit him in the head to get his attention and all :P The problem I have always had with Angus, though, is actually being able to land something when I have gone to bop his nose. That boy is like greased lightning!

    I'm with you, I always feel bad afterward, but Angus is just too "hard" for a "No, Angus," to make any kind of impression...especially if he's really wound up.
