Dog trainer slams the use of treats to spoil dogs
Dog trainer Scott Donald has created a DIY dog training app in response to dog attacks. More than 25 deaths from dog attacks in Australia since 2000. He fears modern dog owners mollycoddle their dogs, aren’t firm and use too many treats as rewards for good behaviour. He says too many families buy performance dogs (such as cattle breeds) from breeders in an unregulated industry and aren’t taught how to handle them.
