Q & A: Dog Obedience Through Hot Sauce

Question: Obedience Through Hot Sauce?

“I’ve heard that pouring hot sauce on a piece of meat will teach a dog to ignore any food found lying on the ground. Is this practice of obedience acceptable? And is it safe?”

Answer:

No! and No! Any trainer advocating that method had better go back to school. It may teach a dog to avoid a piece of meat that has first been laced with hot sauce, but a person bent on teaching a dog to avoid something with scolding hot sauce does not have positive dog training in the forefront of his or her mind.
