I didn't know that - certainly puts a different complexion on it. I'd favour the 'eye for an eye' punishment for the handler & beat him with a pick axe handle.The first Clyde didn't enjoy his experience, as his trainer would beat him to make him "act", and at the end of filming Clyde was beaten to death. Difficult to enjoy Every Which Way But Loose knowing that.
As regards training in general, I think things have changed from punishment to reward as it's much more effective [& humane] certainly for dogs. The Barbara Woodhouse method would never get on the tv these days.
