sounds like training to me. it's not like he beats the dog just to beat him. that would be animal abuse
A dog being swatted on the ass or hit with a rolled-up news paper is VERY different than beating an animal. Just like how spanking a child is a VERY far cry from beating a child. They are not the same and beating an animal or a human is disgusting and unacceptable.
Hi, someone with a degree in education here. Giving punishment (it’s called positive punishment) is the absolute worst way to train a living being. It causes them to be scared or possibly aggressive. The best way is positive reinforcement, which is when you reward good behavior. Yes, it may take a bit longer, but it won’t have any adverse effects on behavior. We looked at studies of the different types of training of dogs, so this definitely applies here too.
