I watched the video again, just because I wanted to try and understand where you were interpreting it as punishment for chewing. I think you're misunderstanding what he's trying to do. He's not saying to pinch the ear as punishment, he's saying to do it to show that as soon as the dog says ouch, or yelps, you let go right away, just like when a dog nips, or goes for a shoe, you say ouch, and the dog learns to let go right away, like the puppy did with the pencil.
