Everyone has a pet peeve, something that really bugs you to all ends, and dogs are not quite any different. Some would say that the first pet peeve of any dog is a cat; that is not always true. Many cats and dogs are the best of buds, or at least tolerant of each other. However, there are some things that drive a dog crazy. Your local Knoxville-area veterinarian or animal behaviorists as listed below or one nearer to your home location can tell you some of the more specific pet peeves of the common canine.
Your dog may describe his or her more common pet peeves as:
- Getting the blame for the foul odor in the room!! After all, it is not always my fault when someone let’s one loose! I’m not the only one who farts!
- I just hate it when I get yelled at for barking? What else am I supposed to do? It is part of our trait as a dog!
- I love going outside with my humans but they don’t understand; I need to “smell” my mail from other dogs. Instead, I get dragged away from important messages!!
- I just hate it when my humans try to make me do unnatural tricks! I am not a circus performer!
- I hate those haircut trips! Then they put bandannas, ribbons and bows on me, like some kind of prissy!! Who needs a haircut anyhow. I like to be all-natural!
- I sure can’t help it if someone “loses” a piece of people food. Finders keepers, losers, weepers!!! And it won’t be me! Don’t yell at me for these little “accidents.”
- Don’t get mad at me cause the vet is not my favorite!! Have you seen the size of those needles??!!
- I don’t need to wear no stupid, hideous looking sweater or coat! For goodness sake, I am a dog with my own coat which I much prefer!
- Why do I get yelled at for licking myself? You would too if possible! Sounds like a jealousy thing to me!
This is just a minimal lists of things that could bother your poor, sweet, happy pooch but if he or she could only talk, just imagine what other gripes may be included. Still and all, we love those little bundles of fur, pet peeves and all!
