Bad Dog Trainers

Posted on Mon, Jun 20, 2011 at 11:27 AM

Speaking of shitty dog owners, I hate when people think that randomly yelling commands at their dog is the same as training. I came upon a woman in the street the other day yelling "Sit! Sit!" at a young dog, which was cowering from her. Dogs don't actually "understand" English, and you must be a real moron to think that just yelling a word at a dog and jabbing its hindquarters is actually having any effect (besides making your dog hate you and you look like a jackass). If people are going to get puppies and train them themselves they should actually research the topic OR get a professional to do it. —Bub
