Current thought on dog training is never to tell your dog NO.
If he’s savaging a small child, you have to WAIT TIL HE ISN’T and then reward the STOPPING – not scold or discipline the ATTACKING – because that would negatively impact his stress level and his self-esteem.
Peeing on the floor? Settle in and discuss his actions, help him understand how that impacts others – DO NOT TELL HIM “NO” – What you do according to some current thoughts and studies is REWARD the “not doing the bad thing”.
Never, EVER tell your dog “No”
It’s better for a dog’s self esteem and future relationships.
When he’s done pooping or peeing on your floor, or tearing up the cushions on your sofa WAIT UNTIL HE STOPS AND REWARD THE STOPPING. Otherwise he could develop ‘daddy issues’.
