|Hahaha... Ohhh. I've had my share of unsolicited, and 'helpful' advice.
There was the time a guy came up, and did the 'hand bite jab' that is infamous of Cesar Millan's The Dog Whisperer training, when he noticed Charlie pulling on my walk, and said my dog was trying to 'dominate' me by pulling and being 'leader'! Luckily, Charlie brushed it off and kept walking, while the guy got an earful from me about touching MY dog.
I also had another person say my Rottweiler was dangerous, and how dare I had a dominant, aggressive dog. This was AFTER Maya trusted people again and was a wiggle-bum with new people.
I also had a friend tell me that Charlie was trying to dominate me. I was sitting on the floor cross-legged, while massaging Charlie because it relaxes him, and he leaned into me and stepped over my lap for more of the massage. Suddenly, he was dominant!
Best advice I've gotten was definitely on Dogster. Actually, when I first got Charlie, I joined Dogster, and the positive reinforcement that I learned about after, was what lead to him now being the amazing dog he is, and as well-mannered and trained he is.
Dogster is the reason that I managed to work through many of Maya's issues and the issues of some of my fosters.
