Sorry, I wasn't specific. In an effort to be quick I left out the rather
important instruction that when putting the pup in its crate for a time out,
*you do NOT* make it a punishment by saying "bad dog" or worse, spanking &
throwing in crate. Simply pick the pup up saying nothing more than the ouch
and "Sorry" in the same tone used in clicker training (information purposes
only to dog) and placing in crate. Dog can have chewies and toys in crate.
This is a time out *NOT* jail. This usage is part of crate training. After
10-15 minutes pup can come out for another try. You're right in saying that
they remember...they remember that when they bit their human, the object of
their attention was taken away. I use this on needle teeth JR puppies and I
promise you every one loves to "kennel up" because that's where dinner and
biscuits magically appear. Better? Wendy PS Liked the vinegar tip!
