Dogs are, by the popular phrase “A man’s best friend”, and they really are. But, if you want to keep your dog as your best friend, there are 10 things say.
1. Good boy/girl
Ok, dogs are high energy and emotional. This phrase is boring to them. To them, this phrase is “white noise”.
2. Don’t cry
Dogs are emotional and communicate this way. Just let them be who they are.
3. You are such a pain
If you have raised a child you know it takes time, effort, and patience. Be patient and you will see the results.
4. Hurry up
They won’t understand. They are dogs, so be patient.
5. You know better than that
The only way they are going to do this is if they are trained. It’s not a good thing to utter.
6. Baby talk
It doesn’t help them learn. For a dog to learn, repetitiveness is key.
7. I hate you
Remember, dogs respond to emotions. This type of phrase is dripping with negativity, and your dog will pick it up.
8. Stop or else
Another negative phrase. They will pick up that negativity.
9. Wait unit Mommy/Daddy comes home
This phrase is just “passing the buck” of authority to someone else.
10. Just leave me alone
Dogs want to be with you….let them.
