I dunno if this is just a rant or asking for training advice. So I wasn't entirely sure where it should go. It is IMPOSSIBLE for me to run laundry these days. He's scared of the buzzer. And I don't mean just a little skittish scared. I mean full out, panting, shaking, under my feet, getting into things he knows he's not allowed type of scared. Like he's suddenly as dumb as a doorknob scared. Refuses to listen to anything I say, not even a simple sit. And I have NO sympathy for the dog. None. He used to be fine with the buzzer, no care in the world. Now he worries himself to death over it, no matter what I do. I ignore him, he just escalates. I try to comfort him, he escalates. I try to distract him, he runs off and paces the house and escalates. I swear, he just does it to do it. And I know "dogs don't do that". Well, he's doing it. There's no reason for him to go from A-OK with the buzzer, chilling out next to it, then all of a sudden he thinks he can disobey EVERY rule he has EVER been taught a soon as the dryer goes off. And it's not like I can just stop and COMPLETELY ignore him and let him snarf food, climb over couches, jump on beds, and get into things he's not allowed. Maybe he's just doing it for the attention...he just doesn't care what kind of attention it is. And it's getting WORSE with every time he hears it. So much so, that he's now beginning to act the same way with the facebook messanger dinger. It's absolutely ridiculous. I can't even lock him in a different room. Because he can open doors. I want. to. Scream.
