What Is Dog Shaming?

Updated on October 31, 2012

Dog Shaming is the practice of taking photos of your family pet with a sign next to them shaming them of their 'crimes'.

Dog Shaming 101

Dog Shaming is the latest craze to sweep the internet. Originating on Tumblr , the site has since exploded with hundreds of people posting pictures detailing their furry friends discretions. About a dozen more copy cat sites have since been popping up all over the web.

As far an internet crazes go, I hope this one sticks around for a while, as who doesn't love to have a bit of a chuckle when you learn that their are far more misbehaving dogs out there than your own.

The Dog Shaming Photo

To take a dog shaming photo you need a guilty dog with crimes. Ok, so they don't actually need to be guilty, but we humans like to pretend that they do express some form of remorse for chewing up our mobile phones and brand new slippers!

Their shaming sign is either placed beside them, or held up by their humans in front of them. Alternatively, the caption is sometimes added later in a graphic editing software, but this tends to loose its appeal.

What you write on the sign is completely up to you, but in order to shame your furry friend properly it should be written in the first person tense.

Below is a collection of laugh-out-loud dog shaming pics.


Correcting Common Dog Problems

On the flip side of doggy shaming, if your dog has a dog behavioral problem, especially one that could be dangerous to their well being, such as digesting sharp or toxic items, please put the camera down and ask your vet for advice or seek out a nearby dog obedience training class. A dogs never too old for obedience training!
