Not so. It was quite effective for friends of mine. It might not be the most friendly, but neither is the dog going after the family's food chickens, which it never did again. The dog/human relationship is wounded for the short term of the carcass being around the dogs neck and the initial scolding, but if the owner and the dog have a real relationship in the first place, the dog and the human will heal this wound, and go on in trust.
As a dog trainer with 30 years of experience... this really is an ineffective way to train a dog.
