Oh Bernie, how terrible. What a shocking way to raise his daughters, another generation of idiot dog owners.
My BIL is very hard on his dogs, physically, however he does take them everywhere with him and they get plenty of exercise. However I still don't like the way he disciplines them and he'd kill the spirit of many breeds or individuals.
My bitches love him, but my two males stay well clear of him, they seem to just be able to tell.
