Is it bad to pick up a dog from under the chin? (Description)
I know that sounds weird but hear me out. My older brother ALWAYS pinches my dog's skin at the chin/neck area (underneath the snout I guess) and then while he pinches, he picks her up from the same spot and drops her. doesn't put her down, he drops her. It PISSES me off so much. I yell at him and he yells at me back calling me an idiot. it's a Maltese dog so she's medium sized. Is he doing a bad thing or not? Edit: I've also heard that it's bad to pick up a dog from the scruff of the neck.
