Dog Training Gone Too Far

Baylor Football Player Ishmael Zamora is seen caught here hitting his dog repeatedly and quite hard in what he says was a house training incident. When does training a dog go too far? Having pets nearly all my life, it is quite frustrating when they do not listen. But when it comes to training how do you expect a dog to understand? It can not understand your words or your intentions so easily. Imagine you trying to understand what a dog wants you to do and you get beat if you do not follow. There are many methods to training and he should have understood it is a slow process.

Do I hate what he did? Yes. Do I hate Ishmael Zamora? No. I believe there is a lesson to be told as harsh of a reality this can be. This is something everybody should see and understand that something like this should never be done. This was at the expense of Ishmael’s dog but should show all potential owners that frustrations do exist. He obviously let it get the best of him. He is now getting training. And if you look at training it is quite expensive, it is hard for a common dog owner to get. More questions than answers in an ever complex issue and web And what about the friend recording? Did he not think it was too harsh and why did he not say or do anything to stop it. I think this is the new norm in just broadcasting it to the world like snapchat. Something for just entertainment. There wasn’t positive that would come out of this.

Another thing to think about is what punishment is he going to receive. This story has been publicized all across the sporting world and we are watching to see what will happen. Being a sports fan myself, I know that Baylor has gone understand a ton of scrutiny recently and this is not something they wanted. So they are under the microscope to what they will do about this situation. I’m reading that its a possible $500 fine included in his misdemeanor. I don’t know if I feel that is enough. Make it something where people will definitely not think about doing something like that. I feel he is remorseful and his emotions got the best of him. And its not a reoccurring thing especially with him under such spotlight.

We will see how his football career goes, but I think a half a football year suspension would be a good discipline. People are allowed redemption in our society and I think it would be fair.
