how I failed as a dog parent (and still have the greatest dog in the world)

I feel like so many people try to cover up their struggles with their dogs, because EVERYONE on the internet will be like — OMG YOU ARE THE WORST HUMAN EVER. I figure it’s time for some real talk.

Pudge is not crate trained.

Pudge and…

this makes me feel better…

Ani danger woofs at every person she can not see entirely, if she can only see your legs, you are the enemy. She also danger woofs at all people without dogs after 10:30 PM who are outside walking around. She doesn’t always like teenagers either. 

Prey drive, don’t even get me started. Hubble’s is through the freaking roof, especially with cats. 

We don’t like to listen at the dog park. Period. 

Ani likes to hump her brother late at night when they are playing, haven’t figured that one out yet.

Balto steals things and hides them throughout the house. (Getting better..)

They hate dogs that play by jumping in their faces, basically anything similar to boxer play style. 

Ani will sometimes jump up and steal pizza straight out of your hand (she’s allergic to grains..)

Hubble expresses excitement through scream howls. In public places this is very embarrassing.

They are all down right horribly stubborn. 

I will never be able to walk them on a flat collar.

They have GPS because if they ever are let off leash they would NEVER come back, their recall is shit.

I could keep going…

BUT GUYS we passed enough classes to become therapy dogs (they show off in class but don’t listen at home)… and they are very good at that, which is just looking cute and getting pets.

Ani and Balto leave cats alone and have very positive interactions with my fiance’s cats. We sit, stay, down every time I ask when inside the house and almost always in public places. Counter surfing is at a minimum. We get along great for the most part with kids. All three are crate trained. All three walk very well on a harness. All three are very well socialized with other dogs.

We don’t always get it right, but they are the best, the very best, dogs.

Just some musings to add to this lovely string of how our dogs aren’t perfect (… guess what, they don’t need to be!). It’s a bit tangenty, sorry.

I take what people say online about how their dogs are trained (good or bad) with a grain of salt. No dog is perfect and they shouldn’t be, in my opinion (then again I hate what I call robot-dogs). People who make their dogs out to be perfect or close-to… well, like I always say, don’t believe everything you read. ;] There’s SO much ego-stroking online/on social media. I feel like that’s all people use the internet for these days sometimes - to make themselves look great to others and hide the negative from them.

Also people that say their dogs are horrible, well, I take that with a grain of salt too. It goes both ways. They can believe whatever they want, they can say whatever they want, only they know what’s true. I just smile and nod and move on.

There’s a lot of hypocrisy online as well, but what can you do. The person with the most untrained dog can give advice and spout Google training suggestions out the wazoo even if their dog has never even gotten a chance to practice with those techniques. It’s part of what the internet is. Don’t get me wrong, some people are great people to go to for advice, and their dogs are trained as they make them out to be. Just don’t assume everyone and their dog is what they appear.

Our dogs are good sometimes, bad sometimes, need work in some areas, excel in other areas. They’re dogs. Individuals. We all have good and bad days, and strengths and weaknesses.

"One year, I taught this (Sociological theory) class and only used female writers. The journals were written by women, the textbook was written by females. Do you know what kind of responses I got on my student evaluations that year? {…} That I was biased, that I was only looking from one point of view… that I was basically a man eater. That’s the kind of things I’d get from the students… The semester before, I used only male writers. Do you think I got any kind of feedback like that then?"
