I swear, the training advice I hear come out of peoples mouths makes me want to scream/cry...
I took Kiwi, Emma, and Chili to the dog park yesterday...we usually go to the far end away from people but they are renovating and it was blocked off...so I was always in earshot of people, which I usually avoid...for exactly this reason.
This woman first comes to me and points at Kiwi and ask if shes my dog... then asks if she didn't like her dog (a huge huge lab) because Kiwi "bit her dog on the eye"
They had accidently bonked heads (hard) while playing and I told her Kiwi loved her dog and they were IMO playing rather well...
she proceeds to bring her dog over and point at his eyeball...I see nothing. I shrug and tell her I don't see anything....she laughs (wierdly) and then walks away, she didn't seem angry.
anyway...so she then starts telling people how well trained her dogs are because she watches ALL the ceaser shows
she then starts to call her dog, which ignores her...over and over and over and over...she finally grabs him and jams a treat in his face and starts barking commands at him....
he keeps trying to disengage and run away (even with a treat in his face!) and everytime he does she grabs him, says no, and barks more commands at him using the treat as bait.
I've seen similar stupidity before and usually just laugh shake my head, but this went on for close to AN HOUR on and off...she then proceeded to go over to a woman with a GSD pup and tell her that petsmart is the best place to get a dog trained and as long as you watch ceaser you are basically a dog trainer...she then proceeded to give really harmful advice to this woman for about twenty minutes....
then the circus music played again...the whole "sitsitsitsit...no!....sitsitsit..come here....begbegbeg...NO! Come here! sit sit sit
" began all over again.
So I walked over to her and said nicely, "i can show you a better way to do that if you want, use are using the food incorrectly"
she smiles and did the wierd laugh again and simply said "im showing everyone his tricks! hes knows alot of tricks!" and then went back to what she was doing.
At this point I hear two other women talking about clickertraining...and how you are supposed to...and I quote...
wave the food in the dogs face...then you point at the ground, give the dog a treat, then click, they know this means sit.
I looked at her and said nicely "thats not the correct way, I can teach you if you'd like
" and she gave me a hard stare and then turned around and ignored me.. WTH?
