When inviting a tradesman into your house, please dont let your dog jump up, lick, bite, bark..."oooh look he likes you, hes just getting use to you...he'll be alright in a minute" etc etc...

We may be smiling and joking along but really we are thinking "get your feckin dog off me, no i dont wish to have my newly washed T-Shirt coverd in paw marks or my arms and backs of my hands coverd in dog lick and smelling of what they just licked 5 minutes early".

Also when we are working if you could assist in keeping your mut away from our tools so we dont have to spend half the day searching for them.

Its hard to tell a customer you dont like his/hers dog when they are going to pay you.

You can hear the owners wispering "he dosent like our dog, he'll never work here again!" :D

I have two dogs and they are both trained to go into the kitchen when told if someone is comming in who is doing a job. I cant belive there are peopl who would let their dogs mess wiv ya tools. that is just so wrong.

Some people have no control over their kids so you have no chance when a dog is involved as well.

Try telling that to our Rottweiler (Murphy)!! He's 9 months old and already quite big but as soft as shit with people that i let in the door. Even though we don't encourage and are still training him (actually quite well behaved in the main) he still jumps up at people and trys to lick them to depth, which is obviously quite embarassing for me at times.

Perhaps you should have got a poodle instead? :D

People understandably do look concerned when they see him, but he really is a big softy. It is wrong dogs jumping up etc and we're training him not do it. i hate being covered in doggy slober myself especially when they've been licking all manner of 'orrible things.
As i type this the cheeky mutt is sat watching me.
I'll always grab him when anyone comes to the door otherwise he'll go charging off in an excited state! He's a loon. :tick:

No dog should jump up on strangers. It's bad manners and bad training.
Since when did dogs have manners?

As a dog owner i must admit other owners that have badly trained dogs infuriate me. When ever workman or strangers come into my house my dogs are locked away as i want them to remain strangers to my dogs as they are trained guard dogs, how ever when my friends are visiting it is different as my dogs are also pets and i think it is important that they socialise. A few weeks back i was talking to a woman and her dog kept jumping up at me making my jeans wet and dirty and when my son came over the dog jumped up and knocked him over and the woman thought it was funny, i how ever didnt and told her so and she wasnt very polite :rolleyes:

So yes i totally agree that there are some lazy owners that should be taught manners but i dont blame the dogs :crazy:

Depends what you want from your dog.

Ours is obedient, placid and not at all boisterous with strangers or otherwise.

However, she IS a dog (well bitch) therefore she is interested in anything new. And she will approach strangers and have a sniff. If she likes the look of them and theyre sat down, she might approach them for some attention.

Thats what dogs do. If you want to stop them doing that, you might as well have an Aibo.


Anyway, I dont have a problem, theres some Polish guys down the road who do all my work around the house cheap, and they love dogs...

;)

What a load of shite. Dogs are pack animals. What's more, they are hunters. My labrador wants to sniff people to identify them and i'd never discouraging him from doing it either. It's almost bad manners from the dog's point of view not to do it. They just want to know what's going on. If someone came to my house and asked me to get my dog off them i'd tell them to feck off. My house, my dog, my rules.
