So today a guy comes in, the topic becomes about Princess. He asked who watches her when we have to be gone, we said so far she just goes with us. Well he offered to keep her for us if we need him to. He has a kennel outside, she'd have to stay in it but he'd be sure to walk her. Well Princess is a spoiled little girl, she lives inside. She has a fenced in yard that she runs and plays in, she watches tv with me in the evening and sleeps on a pillow next to our bed, and if she gets real cold she gets in bed with us. I couldnt stand the thought of leaving her somewhere that would mean she'd be spending alot of time penned up. ANYWAY, he asked if she can be led with a leash, I laughed and said yes and sometimes I'm the one led. Simply because if she sees a cat she might try to chase it. He said he'd break her of that real quick. Started saying how the best way to handle a Chow is to shave their necks and put on a shock collar, that will stop the crap real quick. Said Chows are mean, he's seen Chows kill other dogs, and the reason they are so mean is....on and on. My husband tried to argue with him but it was all on deaf ears. This guy "had Chows", he knows, in fact according to him 'red chows' are the meanest. Well no way would he ever be allowed to babysit my girl! I just cant stand it when these "experts" come walking in with all the answers about certain breeds. He comes in different times, he's played with Princess in ways I didnt like and I've removed her from being around him. The hole time talking about what great guard dogs they are, gotta train them to guard your place, ect. I always feel like his play is encouraging aggression. I just wanted to vent. It upset me listening to him and his 'cures', advice, and his so called facts. Its no wonder his dogs get mean. I'd be mean to. Just to think he would honestly think I'd ever trust him to babysit my dog, I DONT THINK SO.
