Where’s the Logic?
You might not realize this, but picking a dog up by the ears is a huge no-no. Most of the time, if you do this, the dog will stop moving as their ears are highly sensitive. Also, it puts all of the dog’s weight on this tissue between the ears and head. If you think you wouldn’t feel comfortable with someone doing this to you, just imagine how your doggie would feel!
Can you imagine someone doing this to you? It would be utterly painful! The only time veterinarians consider it to be acceptable is if you’re trying to keep away from an angry or aggressive puppy, as it’s sure to make them quit moving. Still, that makes more sense than whatever this witness was talking about!
