    Font - Freyhna · 6 days ago "Oh but I don't mind" there is a reason I don't want my dog to jump up on you and you allowing it/inviting her to do it is undermining me, my training, and confusing my dog. Ultimately I get to choose what behaviors are acceptable for my dog and jumping up on people is not one of them. This is for the ultimate safety of my dog and those around me. I have many small children and my grandparents in my life and it is dangerous for everyone involved if my 65lb muscular wo

    Doggo owners everywhere can likely relate to this interesting comment. Doggo owners are the only ones responsible for the training and behavior of their doggos, and when other humans come in to the mix, doggos can get very confused about what is appropriate behavior.

    Font - Melodic_Echidna · 6 days ago Any variation of "they only need some love" The affection and deep bond between humans and dogs is a wonderful thing, but a dog still needs appropriate exercise, management, and training to be a pleasant companion. I've met too many dogs whose owners deeply cared for them but who are ill- mannered and difficult to be around.

    Font - Mythion · 6 days ago · edited 6 days ago "He/she just won't stop going in the house or eating things, we have to get rid of him/her, just not a good dog" 100% of the time comes from people who haven't taken a single second to train their dog. Disgusting
