"Nope. That "beating dogs with sticks" things is

Koehler on correcting the Barking Dog
Thunder through the door or gate, snatch up the belt
that you've conveniently placed, and descend on him.
He'll have no chance to dodge if you grab the line and
reel him in until his front feet are raised off the floor or, if
he's a big dog, until you've snubbed him up with a hitch
on something (ceiling hook, rafters, tree limb, door, or
even over your shoulder, if you know HOWE. j.h.)
While he's held in close, lay the strap vigorously against
his thighs. Keep pouring it on him until he thinks it's the
bitter end. A real whaling now may cut down somewhat
on the number of repeat performances that will
be necessary. When you're finished and the dog is
convinced that he is, put him on a long down to think
things over while you catch your breath. After fif*** or
twenty minutes, release him from the stay and leave the
Koehler on correcting the housebreaking backslider.
"If the punishment is not severe enough, some of these
"backsliders" will think they're winning and will continue
to mess in the house. An indelible impression can
sometimes be made by giving the dog a hard spanking of
long duration, then leaving him tied by the mess he's
made so you can come back at twenty minute intervals
and punish him again for the same thing. (Dogs are
REALLY stupid. J.H.)
In most cases, the dog that deliberately does this
disagreeable thing cannot be made reliable by the light
spanking that some owners seem to think is adequate
punishment. It will be better for your dog, as well
as the house, if you really pour it on him."
BARKING, WHINING, HOWLING, YODELING, SCREAMING, AND WAILING
We'll begin with the easiest kind of vocalist to correct: the one that
charges gates, fences, doors, and windows, barking furiously at
familiar or imaginary people and objects. A few clusters of BBs from a
good slingshot, in conjunction with the light line and plenty of
temptations, will cause such a dog to use his mind rather than his
mouth. But you won't make the permanent impression unless you supply
dozens of opportunities for him to exercise the control he thus
acquires. Make sure these opportunities don't always come at the same
time of the day, else he may learn to observe the "quiet hour" and
pursue his old routines at other times. With the help of the light
line, it will be easy to follow the BBs with a long down to make sure
he gets the most from his lesson. As was mentioned before, eliminating
the senseless barking will not lessen the dog's value as a watchdog
but rather, as he grows more discriminating, increase it.
The dog who vocalizes in bratty protest or lonesomeness because you're
gone constitutes a different problem. If it is impractical for someone
to stay with him constantly (there are owners who cater to neurosis by
employing dog sitters), you'll have to heed the neighbors and the law
and quiet the dog. This calls for a little ingenuity as well as a
Attach a line to your dog's collar, so your corrective effort doesn't
turn into a footrace around the house until you reach a stalemate
under the bed. This use of the line in the correction will also serve
to establish it as a reminder to be quiet as the dog drags it around
when you're not present. Next, equip yourself with a man's leather
belt or a strap heavy enough to give your particular dog a good
tanning. Yup-we're going to strike him. Real hard. Remember, you're
dealing with a dog who knows he should be quiet and neighbors who have
legal rights to see that he does.
Now leave, and let your fading footsteps tell the dog of your going.
When you've walked to a point where he'll think you're gone but where
you could hear any noises he might make, stop and listen. If you find
a comfortable waiting place on a nearby porch, be careful not to talk
or laugh. Tests show a dog's hearing to be many times as sharp as
When the noise comes, instead of trying to sneak up to the door so you
can barge in while he's still barking, which is generally impossible,
respond to his first sound with an emphatic bellow of "out," and keep
on bellowing as you charge back to his area. Thunder through the door
or gate, snatch up the belt that you've conveniently placed, and
descend on him. He'll have no chance to dodge if you grab the line and
reel him in until his front feet are raised off the floor or, if he's
a big dog, until you've snubbed him up with a hitch on something.
While he's held in close, lay the strap vigorously against his thighs.
Keep pouring it on him until he thinks it's the bitter end. A real
whaling now may cut down somewhat on the number of repeat performances
that will be necessary. When you're finished and the dog is convinced
that he is, put him on a long down to think things over while you
catch your breath. After fif*** or twenty minutes, release him from
the stay and leave the area again.
So that you won't feel remorseful, reflect on the truth that a great
percentage of the barkers who are given away to "good homes" end up in
the kindly black box with the sweet smell. Personally, I've always
felt that it's even better to spank children, even if they "cry out,"
than to "put them to sleep."
You might have a long wait on that comfortable porch before your dog
starts broadcasting again. When he does, let your long range bellow
tie the consequent correction to his first sound and repeat the
spanking, if anything emphasizing it a bit more.
It might be necessary to spend a Saturday or another day off so that
you'll have time to follow through sufficiently. When you have a full
day, you will be able to convince him each yelp will have a bad
consequence, and the consistency will make your job easier. If he gets
away with his concert part of the time, he'll be apt to gamble on your
After a half dozen corrections, "the reason and the correction" will
be tied in close enough association so that you can move in on him
without the preliminary bellowing of "out." From then on, it's just a
case of laying for the dog and supplying enough bad consequences of
his noise so he'll no longer feel like ***.
Occasionally, there is a dog who seems to sense that you're hiding
nearby and will utter no sound. He also seems to sense when you have
really gone away, at least according to the neighbors. Maybe his
sensing actually amounts to close observation. He could be watching
and listening for the signs of your actual going.
Make a convincing operation of leaving, even if it requires changing
clothes and being unusually noisy as you slam the doors on the family
car and drive away. Arrange with a friend to trade cars a block or two
from your house so you can come back and park within earshot without a
single familiar sound to tell the dog you've returned. A few of these
car changes are generally enough to fool the most alert dog.
Whether your dog believes you are gone anytime you step out of the
house or requires the production of changing clothes and driving off,
keep working until even your neighbors admit the dog has reformed. If
there has been a long history of barking and whining, it sometimes
requires a lot of work to make a dog be quiet when you're not around,
so give the above method an honest try ...
