Dog trainer slams puppy to the ground and breaks his leg in gruesome video
WARNING: Content contains graphic video and descriptions of abuse.
Internet dog lovers are demanding the arrest of a dog trainer named Manuel Golden. It is believed to have a facility in Acrola, Texas called TyCalK9. Golden is known as a “celebrity dog trainer” who has trained the dogs of sports stars and television personalities.
In surveillance footage, he was seen lifting a German Shepherd puppy into the air and tackling him to the ground when he didn’t behave. The incident broke the dog’s leg, but Golden was not punished. He still seems to train dogs despite everything. But dog lovers will keep fighting.

An anonymous source shared the video footage with reporters. In the video, the man appears to be teaching the puppy to stop chewing on the object he is holding. He shouts a command to the dog, but the puppy does not respond. Then, the man lifts the puppy over his shoulder and tackles him to the ground with a frightening movement.
After touching the ground, the puppy is unable to use its hind legs. He moans in pain, but the man does nothing to help him. The dog in the video is believed to belong to Golden, but he has since rehomed it.
One of the pup’s legs was completely broken after the incident, so he had to go to the vet to have it reconstructed. The poor pup will have a lot of rehabilitation to do. He deserves justice!
The suspect shows no sympathy
So far, the dog trainer has received no punishment for his actions. He took down the establishment’s website and social media accounts, making it look like it’s closed for good. But when a reporter visited the training company, there were still dogs. No one let the reporter in, but a woman stuck her head out to tell them to go away and stop bothering the dogs.
Police are investigating the situation, but no update has yet been shared. It looks like Golden will continue to train dogs wherever he can.
“We cannot share details as the investigation is ongoing, but we take these matters seriously and do not condone animal abuse in any way. A thorough investigation by experienced cruelty investigators and prosecutors animals is ongoing,” the Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office said.
Professional dog trainers remind pet owners to be careful who to trust. It’s a good idea to meet with your dog trainer ahead of time and don’t be afraid to ask them detailed questions, such as how they plan to reward and discipline your dog. There are many good dog trainers out there, but heartless people like Golden make it harder for them.
