    Does your pet have an annoying habit?

    My pet has got into the habit of breaking wind. He can clear the room in 2 seconds. Does your pet do anything to annoy you.

    Yes, He sprays his territory. He is such a great dog. That is his only fault. I've tried everything. Nothing has worked?

      my dogs had the same problem, but I got the "dogfather" tapes and they really made a difference. They're not like the dog whisperers methods, they are treat free and nice. I would recommend it if you are interested

    My sweet little Dachshund goes crazy if I turn on a water hose, she bites the stream of water till she pukes, and then later when the water is off and I'm not looking she chews up the hose.

    By the way, breaking wind is not really a habit, but something your dog can't control. Maybe you need to change his diet.

    Shakes and paces as soon as she hears thunder. If at night, wakes me up pacing up and down my side until I hold her.

    My dog barks A LOT! We've been living in the same neighborhood for ten years and he still barks at our neighbors, mailman, dogs. He likes to sleep in my room at night and if he hears dogs walking at night he'll bark without ceasing unless I wake up and tell him to stop. It's annoying waking up from much needed sleep.

    Over the last 6 months one of my Ridgebacks has started to "talk" to me. Actually it comes out as a whinge and she changes the pitch and utterances. This will always happen when I'm working on the computer or sitting down to watch TV.  Oh, and I nearly forgot, if the covers fall off her during the night. Already having major sleep problems and I'm wondering just how much she is contributing.

    My dog is so annoying when she's happy because she chews footwear.

    Kitty, the cat who decided to live with us, gets jealous when I use the laptop on my knee. She thinks that's her place to sit. So she rubs her chin and gums on the corner of the computer, presumably to mark her territory. My Dell now has Kitty toothmarks etched on it.

    I have 2 cats and 2 dogs (I take in shelter animals). They each have habits that can be annoying at times, but I feel that my cat Drew's new habit could possibly be the most annoying I've ever experienced.
    He likes to sleep near me and wait until he knows that I am asleep - then he goes in for the kill. He bites my nose or ears and then runs away when I wake up. That little stinker is going to get a bath if that keeps up.

    Yes! My well-behaved dog learned how to eat food off of the counter when staying with a relative. Now we can't leave him inside when we go anywhere or he will make a huge mess. If you want to read more, you can read the hub that I wrote:

    My rat terrier, Peaches, is a digger lol....I know it isn't her fault, it's in her blood, but it can be pretty annoying sometimes. But I have to admit, she sure is cute when her little nose is covered in dirt. smile
