How true is this????


Get a dog.

ANY dog.

Bring it home.

Buy an enormous bag of inexpensive dog food from the grocery store.

Fill a bowl with the food and leave it out. Keep it full at all times.

Yell at the dog for begging at the table. Give it a piece of spaghetti from your plate to make it go away.

Bring the dog outside to go potty.

Forget that it needs to go outside more than once a day.

Yell at it when you discover a puddle in the house.

Pat your chest so the dog will jump on you because he is “happy to see me.”

Yell at the dog for jumping on your 93-year-old mother.

Give the dog an old shoe to play with.

Yell at the dog when it chews your new Converse.

Yell at the dog for barking.

Yell louder than the barking.

Pet the dog whenever he nudges you.

Yell at him to go away when you’re sick of petting him.

Walk the dog with him way in front of you so he can sniff wherever he wants.

Allow him to pee on every tree.

Get mad when he pulls you off your feet to greet another dog.

Stop taking him for walks.

Put the dog in another room when you have company so he won’t bother them.

Keep the dog outside on a chain all day so he won’t bother you.

Leave him at the animal shelter because he has behavior problems.

Get a new dog.

very intuitive-why can't everyone just know this?

This is a great post! So many behavioral problems can be avoided by not giving the dog mixed signals.

You forgot to add - Let the children climb all over him, tease him, and offer him their snacks then yell at dog when he nips and call him a "biter"!!
