|I'm not a moron, nor am I being cruel to my dogs. Frankly I don't care for anyone that took it upon themselves to try and "educate" me. I didn't ask for your opinions and I think it was terribly rude for those that interjected them.
I have four dogs currently, raised them all from pups and used the same technique on everyone (a lab, springer, pug and min pin). I've owned several other dogs before them and on the ADVICE OF A TRAINER and having my VETERINARIAN'S ok I've offered small pups water after exercise, training and with meals only until they are housebroken.
My dogs have NEVER been dehydrated. None have even ever fallen ill with the exception of Greta, Fynnly's sister who died of pneumonia the day after we brought her home. Almost $800 into the efforts to save her but I'm cruel right??? I've volunteered thousands of hours over the years at our local humane society. I know what cruel is better than anyone else.
I care deeply about my pets and am SERIOUSLY OFFENDED that ANYONE here would suggest I'm being cruel in any way. YOU talk to my trainers, YOU talk to my vet, YOU meet my dogs, then and only then can YOU judge ME.
With that I am out of this. My apologies to the OP for everyone that decided to jack your thread on my behalf.
