Video alleges abusive dog training in Oceanside

In a video allegedly filmed at NYDogWorks in Oceanside, New York, a trainer is seen repeatedly poking a long pole into the cage of a dog. The dog is obviously frightened and attempts to grab the stick with his teeth. According to News12, the abusive dog training situation has been shared online and has garnered a lot of attention.

The disturbing video was posted by Thomas Marrone of Oceanside, who states his one-year-old German shepherd, Zeus was also badly beaten at NYDogWorks, and that his dog is now afraid of his own shadow after having been “trained” by the same person. Marrone released the video to warn other dog owners who may still have their pets in the trainer’s care.

The organization’s website states:

“We use a humane, positive and scientifically sound approach that makes it easy for you and your dog to succeed. Our instructions are broken down into simple steps so that everyone can take part in the training and be able to practice as a family.”

The Nassau Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals state they are aware of the video and are investigating. Again, a reminder to be very diligent and thorough before leaving your dog anywhere to be trained. They are the voiceless victims.

The video is disturbing and may not be suitable for all viewers. (Photo of abusive dog training freezeshot of video)

    CCTV cameras should be everywhere nowadays. We even have to keep an eye on people in authority. People can speak up but animals don’t have a voice so we have to be their eyes and ears.

    Video “alleges”? It looks pretty clear to me that abuse is going on at this training facility! There is nothing humane, positive and scientifically sound in what I am seeing in this video! They need to be investigated and shut down if this is the way they are “training” dogs!

      Good point. It is very falsely misleading to quote ”allegedly” . It definitely is in the wrong text and the video clearly provides the evidence of what is happening to the poor dog.

    It’s clear what’s going on here and it’s not good . There needs to be a full investigation here. I think this so called trainer here needs to find a new job, he’s unfit to be around these poor innocent defenseless dogs !!!!

    I’m glad this has been exposed. They are doing more harm to dogs that may already have issues with human relationships. Shut them down!

    This horrible excuse for a dog training professional is nothing more then a pervert who gains pleasure out of confining and torching helpless animal.and this is what really gets me.
    Doing this in front of2- other dogs who clearly are next.
    He must register and be put in an animal abuse registry.
    Never to come anywhere near an animal.
    EVER. His pets all of them must be taken away.
    And while your at it check on his family.the elderly in his him and wife and children.
    Fact people who do this to animals .
    Also do this to all living creatures .
    Even humans.
    If there is no animal abuse registery perhaps we here should start a petition.
    This will not stop untill he is put thru the system.
    His must be ruined.he will never work as an animal trainer again.
    Imagin all the cats and dogs he has killed since he was 5yrs.
    I would like him fully investigated.
