My Dog Sucks

Postby shawngee03 » Sun Sep 05, 2010 3:40 am

we got him 1 month old. we both work...so we caged him for a couple months. that sucked...cleaning crap out of the cage every day....but he eventually learned to wait on me

i work close to where i work...so i can come home during lunch and let him out. all is good

so we decide after about 5 months of caging that he may be ready to be let loose. first month of being out of cage during the day fine. he waitied until i got home lunch and after work to go

(now he's 10 months old) he has started chewing up sandals, carpet, and pooping on the carpet

i say he just needs to be caged until he is old, and appreciates life. she feels it isnt a big deal.

sure...it isnt a big deal that i have to pay for new carpet and my house smells like piss. her dad says he hats us for being away for so long. i say he needs to get a job....word of the day...j...o..b

we have agreed he should go back to being caged while we are at work..so win for me

but he still sucks....how much suck has your dog caused?

Well, he's a dog, so of course he sucks, but why on earth would you get a puppy when nobody was going to be a around to train/take care of it?

If your dog sucks, it's your fault not the dog's. A dog's behavior is a reflection of its owner's time and commitment to training the dog.

Your dog obviously has pent up energy that's not being exercised in a constructive manner.
What do you do to help wear the dog down before you leave - walk, run, fetch, training... anything? Also, what type of breed is the dog?

You got a dog. It seems, with no understanding of what goes into owning a dog. He or she isn't just an ornament. You leave it alone all day, then you're mad at it when you get back. The thing gets no affection or companionship. Dogs are pack animals, they don't do well isolated. Likewise, dogs MUST have an outlet for energy, though it does vary with breed. I really really hope you weren't shortsighted enough to have gotten a high-energy breed with a need for mental stimulation (working breeds especially) if you're leaving him home all day.

Caging the thing borders on animal cruelty. YOU got the dog. YOU made the commitment. YOU'RE the one who doesn't give the dog an outlet for his natural instincts. YOU'RE the one who hasn't had time to find a reputable dog training class that would teach you as much as it would teach the dog.

So don't come on here whining about how much your dog sucks. I feel bad for the dog, his owner kinda sucks.

God help you if you have kids, you going to lock THEM in a closet all day?

You want a well behaved dog?
1) LEARN about your dog. If its not a pure breed, or close, just read about dogs in general and see what seems to match yours.
2) ENROLL in an obedience class.
3) COMMIT to spending time with the poor creature. Mental and physical stimulation every day.
4) And stop blaming the poor dog, HE didn't pick you.

(My apologies for the strong opinions here, but YOU brought the issue here.)

He's probably pissed that you play Linkin Park all the time. :-D

Seriously though, take a training class. You cannot put a puppy in a cage all day and expect it to become a well behaved trained dog. Do yourself a favor, and more importantly the dog a favor, and find it a new home If you don't have the time needed to spend with it. Putting a young dog in a cage while you're at work all day is nothing short of torture. Whoever told you that is how you train a dog should be locked up in a cage themselves.
