Over the years, we’ve had a lot of very interesting people come see us for our complimentary behavior evaluations. Usually, they are looking for our advice, however on occasion we find people come in to give US some advice on their chosen breeds. Here’s a partial list of our favorite Ridiculous Observations people have given us, NONE OF WHICH ARE TRUE!
• A German Shepherd will be easier to train if you speak German.
• Feeding it gunpowder will help make a Hound dog mean and want to fight
• Terriers destroy the house and bark when owners leave them alone because they are spiteful
• As long as a Cattle Dog dog acts "apologetic" afterward, then the dog has learned its lesson and will not bite again
• Rottweilers are aggressive due to a "missing gene"
• Once a Border Collie bites and tastes blood, it will always bite again
• A neutered Terrier can no longer do its job well
• A female Dachshund should have one litter before being spayed to help her calm down
• Pitbulls lose their hearing at the age of 10 and that is why they attack
• Dobermans brains can explode at 7 yrs of age.
So, enjoy a good chuckle over these...and just remember - all of them are completely false! Have you heard of an equally ridiculous dog-related myth? Send it to us!
