Owning a pet dog has always had its downsides.
Teeth marks on shoes and accidents on the kitchen floor are just some of the bad habits owners are willing to overlook in light of the endless affection, loyalty and playfulness provided by a pet pooch.
But now owners are getting their own back on their naughty pets by posting their pictures in a 'dogshaming' gallery on the internet.

LOL! Love it
Owners far more stupid than the dogs. People who are not smart enough to train their pets should not have them. Hope when the pets see the posts, they piss on the owners leg!! That'll teach them.
I can’t really think of anything my dogs do that is wrong.
Same for mine.
anyone who keeps a dog as terrible as these is an idiot
“He drinks milk straight from the carton and puts it back without spilling it on the floor so we can have some!”
“He poops in our water bowl!”
“He's either stupid or deaf, he never starts the daily bark and howl session and is always the last one to come outside when we're raising the alarm against squirrels and bicyclists if he even bothers to come outside at all!”
Dogs have been roaming the Earth for hundreds of years. Give ‘em a break!
Lol....looks like he’s saying “a$$hole, WTF???”
LOL pauli does that when I have her ready to go for a walk and then I forget my phone and poop bag etc. She sits by the door, flexi on, waiting, thinking, “Can you NOT be prepared?”
The secret to owning a good dog is recognizing that they’re dogs and letting it stand at that.
He came in a couple of times to see what the hold up was.
Hahahaha. My sister has one. He is one smart puppy!
Speaking of gates. The big monster who had to be taught everything including how to bark, figured out how to open the garden gate a few days ago. Stomp, stomp, stomp all over the vegetables. Why couldn’t he have still been clueless about gates.
I have a Yorkie and they were bred to dig rats out of holes. I have an expanse of wall next to the front door and it “was” sheetrock. She kept trying to dig a hole in the sheetrock and did. I covered that one and tried using bad tasting doggie spray and that didn’t stop her. That wall is 9 ft. long and I was spending my time looking over there all the time to try to stop her digging. Other small holes appeared.
I gave up and had that wall covered with slick hard stuff like you see in bathtubs or showers. It goes up 4 feet from the floor. From the minute the wall was covered, she never even tried to dig in it - she knew she couldn’t. I had a cardboard box also, and she used that box and dug holes in it.
It appears her digging days are over and I have a nice looking wall. That was the only trouble I had with her.
She is very good about using doggie pads in the kitchen for her business, never goes anywhere else. Occasionally she will miss the pad but not because she is trying to do that.
She is excellent as a guard dog to tell me when anything moves or makes a noise outside. She really is a sweet dog but that wall digging was driving me nuts and she never found a rat in any of those holes or in the cardboard box.
Dogs are just special.
Our beloved boy died last month at an advanced age. For over a year, he was too old and infirm to do much beyond eat and sleep.
My house is cleaner and it is also emptier. I miss his naughtiness and youthful klutziness. Picking up an emptied trash can, gathering up torn paper,cleaning the few late-life in-house poops and having to mop the floors more often would be ok if we could have him back as his younger self.
The cat would probably not agree.
I just took mine in the garden with me to pick beans.
Dogs are empathetic toward their people to an uncanny degree after a while, though. The “bark at Mexicans” person needs to check their own nonverbal cues. The “pees on brooms” person needs to stop using a broom to scare the dog.
I've got a Walker Hound rescue, she's been with me over two years now. She had food issues, she was skin and bone when I took her in. She has her space where her food is, and she eats in private, same time every day. If I have a snack, she gets a little dog treat or a nibble of what I'm having if it's ok for a dog. She's come a long way. A very sweet dog that loves me like nobody’s business.
The breed is extremely “talkative,” all sorts of yips, yodels and baying, so the very first thing we started working on with her was understanding the meaning of “shhhhhh.”. She gets it, might grumble a little but she goes silent when asked.
Know the breed traits, know yourself, accept dog behavior as dog behavior (they're not little people as human as they can be at times), and train them out of behaviors that are not desirable. Stick with it, reward them with praise and a treat when they're “good.” You'll get there eventually.
Mine would say-
“My human is a dog whisperer. I can make her hear me bark in her head when I want outside or she sleeps in too late. How can she punish me for a thought crime? Hehehehe.”
My German Shepherd is very well behaved. I can leave food out all night below nose level on the coffee table and he won’t touch it. One morning, something was gone. I gasped and looked at my dog with an angry face. My daughter later confessed she finished my evening snack when I started ranting I couldn’t believe the dog had done that. I had the time to invest in training. I don’t see how one can adequately train a puppy if they spend 8 hours a day at work. With just a look, I can get my dog to go lie down, stop what he’s doing, or come. That’s something developed over lots of time together.
Your dog's checklist:
Harness - check
Leash - check
owner, owner OWNER!!! all right what's keeping them.
So sad. I still miss my best friend who left us before this gate opening duffus came into our lives. She is now resting in that garden. I couldn’t live in a house without torn up paper and fur everywhere.
Did he leave you any? ;)
Yeah he’s no fan of beans. He just wants one to carry around for a while but then he ditches it and wants another. He loves it when I shake the pear tree through. He settles right down and eats whole pears. He likes oranges too.
I couldn't agree more!
I am looking for a seven pack of those books.
I’ve always known I’m lucky with my guy.
reformedliberal said, My house is cleaner and it is also emptier.
My beloved Mocha Girl Dog passed a couple of years ago and I miss her every day. You are right, my house is cleaner but it is also no longer a home. It is simply a structure where I sleep and keep my stuff.
pops88 said, I dont see how one can adequately train a puppy if they spend 8 hours a day at work.
I agree and that is my hang up on getting another canine pal. The last time I made the leap, my brother lived with me and was home most of the day. Now I would have to crate a pup for a minimum of 8 hours a day, but more likely it would be 10-12 hours a day. I just cant get over that hurdle in my thoughts as I dream of getting another pal. So, I just spoil all of my neighborhood dogs ..
Our dilemma is that we plan to down-size and move in 18-24 months. Unsure if we want to add a puppy to the chore of moving and then uproot him to learn a new place.
OTOH, we are visiting a breeder near us next week to just get to know her parent stock and see some of the offspring, who, luckily for us, will be way too young at that point to even have opened their eyes. She has another litter due a couple of weeks later from parents we think could produce the dog we want. We are thinking of just committing a down payment for a later pick of the color/gender we want. So, it would be about a year from now and the pup would still be pretty young when we move.
We have always had dogs and it feels weird to not have one around. I stop and pet every one I see, but they still aren’t ours.
LOL that’s about right.
I figure that when the right pup is ready, she will find me! Then all of my internal debating will be gone...
