Provoking a Dog Bite

Good Dogs! (06-15-2015) #6040: Marcy from Avidog discusses the video going around the internet that shows Cesar Millan’s provocation of a bite from a Labrador who was trying to eat in peace — and what’s fundamentally wrong with this kind of no-win set up for a dog. Tracie asks about the old school idea temperament/personality testing of a puppy that involved flipping and holding a puppy down — and whether that is now discredited.
