    I understand what you're saying. My dog/pupppy would make a game out of getting hit with the hammer and it would be the highlight of his day even if it hurt him. He's just a good natured playful dog.

    hypothetical force fetch question

    Let's say I pinch the ear and my dog doesn't seem to be bothered by it. I have an injured shoulder but I don't really think my pinch is that weak.
