Dog Owners Say the Wackiest Things to Trainers

By Annie Phenix - Source: http://www.dogster.com

Please don't bite your dog's ear to show it who is boss. Dog ears are for hearing, not for biting!

A good dog trainer loves humans as much as she loves dogs, because she knows that it was the human who called and scheduled a private consult or signed up for a class for Fido. We train humans to learn to train their dogs.

I love dog people, and many of my clients over the years have become dear friends. Having said that, there are times dog trainers say wha-wha-what? We love you because you are the best of the best of dog owners (since you want to train your dog), but sometimes … well, we just have to scratch our heads at your unique, creative solutions to canine problems. Sometimes we are even shocked (and it is hard to shock us) at what you take as gospel about your four-legged friends.

Sometimes I think my dogs are easier to train than humans are.

Here are some of the craziest things dog trainers around the country have heard come out of their clients’ mouths — and I say them from a place of utmost respect and understanding for your canine foibles.
1. “The ghost in the bedroom is causing my dog’s aggression.”

So, maybe the dog trainer wasn’t the right call; shoulda called in Ghostbusters.
2. “My dog humps other dogs so I turn right around and hump my dog to embarrass the dog.”

I see. And if your dog sniffs other dogs’ butts?

Seriously -- you are a human so don't chew on sticks or do other canine-like behaviors as it does not impress your dog.

3. “Our little dogs bite at our ankles while we are trying to eat dinner each evening, so we put the dogs on the dinner table.”

Well, you have to admit that this procedure stopped the ankle biting, but I hope they like the taste of dog hair in their dinner.

Dogs shouldn't be eating on the dinner table alongside the humans.

4. “My dog barks aggressively at motorcycles, but I want him to happily bark at motorcycles.”

Um …
5. “My dog eats the drywall of my home while I am work, but I don’t want to stop that from happening because it means she loves me.”

I hope this owner still has a house, with walls and everything. Separation anxiety can be reduced in so many new ways that it isn’t necessary to let an anxious dog devour your house.
6. “If you feed them venison, they will start chasing deer.”

Not true. If it were, then we could never feed any dog any kind of dog food other than the vegetarian kind — although then they might start chasing potatoes.
7. “If a dog doesn’t have blue eyes, he won’t herd.”

Shhh. Don’t tell the champion amber-eyed herding dogs who clean up at international competitions.
8. “If a dog has blue eyes, she won’t herd.”

See above.
