Is it ok to punish a dog for biting someone by not feeding them dinner one night?

    They will not have any clue why they are not eating

    Is this another wind up? How can a dog possibly figure out why it is not getting fed. My guess is that your dog might be better off with another owner.

    you must give them correction immediately when they misbehave or they will be clueless why they aren't getting food! And that's harsh even for a child who might comprehend they are being punished for something! Watch some Dog Whisperer shows to see how Cesar handles aggressive dogs! The correction is always immediately. Don't withhold nutrition! Find a better way they can understand! Good luck

    You need to think about WHO the "them" are that you mentioned.

    One dog is not a "them".

    One someone is not a "them".

    You also need to realise that hiding the avatar & username that YOU chose for yourself indicates that you are a coward, and VERY probably a troll as well.

    Do your school-teachers starve you when you don't pay attention in class, don't do your homework?

    In what way does starving the dog help the person who was bitten?

    Putting it bluntly:

    You were NOT thinking realistically.

    For a punishment to work, the offender must dislike the punishment, and must understand WHY he/she is being punished.

    How is a baby or a pooch going to connect your failure to supply a meal at 8 or 9pm being anything to do  with what it did at mid-day? You can NOT explain it to a baby. You can NOT explain it to a dog.

    If your dog bites while you are there, you punish it WHILE it is biting.

    A common method is to INSTANTLY grab it by the scruff of its neck as you tell it off in your deepest growliest voice, drag it to its pen or its crate or shut it in the garden shed (depending on what else is in the shed!) then leave it there until it calms down. Once it has been patiently quiet for, say, 30 seconds to 1 minute (depending on the pooch's age) you talk to it pleasantly for deciding to be quiet, get it to obey 1 or 2 of the commands you have taught, THEN praise it (e.g., "Good boy Bruno SIT!") and reward it with some rubs on the croup or between the front legs, or (if you were REALLY prepared!) offer it a pea-sized tidbit such as hard cheese or baked liver in the palm of your hand, or play a game such as Ball Chase or Tug Rope.

    There are variations, but to be effective they must be INSTANT and bearably unpleasant, and once the dog stops protesting it must be reunited with you and prove that it is ready to be obedientn, then be praised & rewarded to restore its attitude of willingness to please you.

    Your sentence has NONE of the details that show that the bite was REAL, so I assume that this is a hypothetical "What if...?" question.

    As almost all of us agree on basically the same response, choose the answer that you consider tried hardest to be helpful, and award it the Best/Favorite Answer points. You thus get back 3 of the 5 points that asking this question "cost" you.

    How is the dog going to know why it's not being fed? Dogs NEED to eat. It's still going to bite people if you don't TRAIN it not to.

    You better hope it was someone within your home and not a neighbour or friend. They'll likely report this to animal control (or the doctor treating them will) and your dog will be deemed dangerous. If this happens again your dog could be seized and put down. Let me guess - pit bull aka bully breed mutt?

    NO ITS NOT:: The dog wouldnt have a clue as to why its not being fed . You should concentrate your efforts to training it not to bite folk instead therefore
