Thread: I hate yappy dogs

    Cute dog ... one that can also be very well-behaved with the right owner (but with a negligent owner... well...)

    It's not the dog, it's the owners.
    If they are going to allow it to be out of control they need to keep it inside a fence or indoors.

    on the other side of the coin...
    I would react to someone hurting my dog, the same way I would if someone hurt one of my grandchildren.

    We had something happen here last year.
    An older man who lived alone had a small yappy dog.
    Some younger people moved in next door and were annoyed by the dog.
    Eventually one of the guys killed the dog.
    The older guy didn't have any family, just the dog.
    When the police wouldn't do anything about the dog getting killed, the older guy committed suicide.

    With some people (myself included) they look at their dog as a family member and react accordingly.
    I wouldn't have gone the suicide route but I would have gone to the neighbors with my machete.

    What the hell?! Really?? I can understand trying to send it away, but why would anyone go so far as to killing the poor thing?
    Ugh, some people. Waste of carbon.

    How senseless all the way around. Nobody solved any problem, only made deeper ones.

    No worries--I'm not going to go around poisoning the neighborhood dogs. I do reserve the right to fantasize about it when they bite me, tho! And yes, I would agree the owners are to blame, not the dog. That said, if that wretched little beast comes charging up to me again and I have a shovel or a broom in my hand, it's going to get a good smack.

    When we had a dog we took him to obedience school, and it was some of the best time/money we've ever spent. A polite dog that will walk at heel and sit quietly when you're standing still is a pleasure to spend time with. Plus the dog goes to school with other dogs and distractions, gets a lot of socialization, and learns (if he doesn't already know) that you're the alpha dog. And for people who have never had a dog, it teaches them not to reward bad behavior (something a LOT of people do with their dogs without realizing it.) If I ever get another dog, it's going to school.

    Dogs aren't the only ones who can benefit from a little training. We had a huge tomcat when I was growing up who was prone to biting. One day he bit me, I grabbed his tail and bit him back. He never bit me again.

    I had the opportunity to take 2 of my dogs to a training class with a truly superb teacher. What I learned was that "obedience school" is all about the human learning how to communicate with the dog...the true training takes place every single day, continuously.
