WTH is wrong with that guy? He is hitting that dog HARD on the face, and thinks it's okay? The dog yelps! And the kids hitting the dog, talk about a bite waiting to happen. I think VS is about to have a heart attack.
It sadden me that there are people who think smacking a dog on the face, choking it with a choke chain, or grabbing it by the scruff are effective ways of training.
I want to know what kind of 'animal professional' will allow filming of this, and not tell the so-called owners what kinds of rotten, cruel people they are. The authorities should have been called, but I guess it's better for ratings if you show this and act like there will be a Cinderella ending.
