Guys its southern like talkin I thinks. Mixed with text messaging.
When ever I approach my dog for messing up my house, which she does all the time, she just stares back at me like I am not talking to her. I feel ignored by my dog, looking at me like a dog who can't understand English looks like. Or, should I say MY kind of English. She always gives me a cute face and I forgive her, but I don't want to be a sap. Please help me.
I tried to translate to no avail. Sounds like he/she is scolding the dog for screwing around or whatever and the dog just sits there and stares and him/her. He/She feels bad for the dog...or feels guilty.
Hey Zoe! Dogs are professional mooches and they ain't ashamed to work it either! They love playing the poor abused pet, thats why we gave up and let them act like people. We figured if we were going to let our son on the furniture the dogs were probably cleaner!
What kind of training has she received? Dogs are also not mind readers, any animal that doesn't have consistent training will not understand what you expect of it. Considering that she does not respond, either some training, reinforcement, or refresher training is certainly in order.
People that keep dogs are cowards! What about sheep dogs. There a working dog How do you expect an old farmer to gather round his sheep. Employ a shepherd.We have moved on from shepherds,Dogs are more reliable.
I'm gonna go ahead and assume your dog's behavioral education is very limited. You're dog doesn't listen to you because in a pack, alpha dogs react very differently to bad behavior than people do. We yell. They don't. Dogs communicate through body language. If you want your dog to stay of the furniture and behave better around guests, I suggest doing some basic training first like sit and stay with food. This creates a hierarchy and your dog will respect you more. But yelling at a dog does nothing if you haven't taught them to understand you yet.
