|"Rottweilers are aggressive and will turn on you."
"If you're not going to breed him, you have to get him neutered." Uhm. Hey, guess what? There's other reasons for not doing it too, including but not limited to health reasons!
"A smart dog just knows and doesn't need training or socialization."
"Once a dog gets the taste for blood, they always have a taste for blood and will kill or harm again and will thus be dangerous with their human family."
"If you beat a dog, you make it a good guard dog."
"Shock collars are training collars to teach a dog wrong from right." I have a friend who got a shock collar for her two pibbles because she couldn't train them to show them what she WANTED and EXPECTED from them, and instead resorted to a shock collar. Poor dogs are terribly confused about what they can and cannot do aside from lay down.
"If you beat a dog for not coming when called, you make it learn to come when called." RIGHT. Cause that dog totally doesn't want to avoid you MORE next time.
"My Pugairn(Pug/Cairn Terrier mix) is purebred!"
"My Irish Wolfhound can't be walked. At all." Right, because a short walk is going to be so much worse on his growing joints than the thirty feet of stairs going from your deck to your backyard. Absolutely.
"Let them work it out." Cause I realllyyy want my little Beagle provoking a massive 100 lb Rottweiler into biting him. My dog would be the dead one. I'll gladly just keep them separated..
"Your dog is scared of cats cause you are." WHAT!? I've never been scared of cats in my life, but yes, for about a YEAR after he was ATTACKED and MAULED by a 25lb cat, of course my dog was scared of cats! His panic attacks when a cat would come near him totally had everything to do with me.
"Just let him be off leash! If he doesn't come back, he was too stupid anyway." No.. That would be.. He was smart enough to do what he was BRED TO DO and it was my dumb fault for letting him do it off leash in an unfenced area!
