Default Do your dogs have any annoying habits that you hate?

For me it's licking ... Any kind of licking even "swallow" or "dry mouth" licking I have a chronic "dry mouth" licker but the body/feet licking is the word ugh.
If there are any typos, it means I am on my phone LOL

Gwen is rude. We go to the dog park so she can socialize. We're lucky if she likes one dog a month. She also is nervous around people. (Which we're working on.) But it's a bit embarrassing when dogs/people want to play with her and she either runs away or just flat out ignores them. I wanted to cry when she played with a Border Collie AND a Kelpie mix the last time we took her.

She also tends to refuse to do tricks/play catch in public or when we are talking about how good she is at it...

Um.. yes.

Have you met my dogs?


Mostly the panting, I can live with the rest actually.

I also hate the obsessive licking sounds, cleaning privates is the worst.

Divebombing the cat. And it's not even effective, it doesn't scare Whiskey at all. And he is just doing it because he's an ass.

I can't even begin to tell you how many times a day I yell at this dog to shut up because I just WANT IT TO STOP.

Licking! So. much. licking. Ripley I swear doesn't realize his tongue actually belongs inside his mouth. And he has an awful, nails on a chalkboard screechy whine too.

Keira licks a lot too (she has to keep those precious paws clean after each meal, even if she didn't use her feet to eat), but makes a different noise. Still equally as annoying.

And Dance doesn't really make licking noises, but I hate watching her lick her feat. She does it so erratically fast.

I guess I just really hate licking period! It's the most annoying for me.

I also get annoyed that Juno always pulls the blankets off her cot. So many mornings I wake up and there is a sea of blankets and beds on my floor to be picked up. Like, dog! I put time and effort into making you a no-sew fleece blanket. I wash your bedding frequently and carefully fold it up to achieve maximum plush comfort. And you throw it on the floor!!!!

I do giggle inside a little bit though when Lucy is sleeping on the cot, on the blankets, and Juno doesn't give a darn and begins pulling the blankets off anyway which in turn pulls Lucy to the ground.

My mother teaches her dogs to only lick/scratch themselves in their crates.
So now I have an AVERSION to dogs licking and scratching themselves.. like if I see dogs doing it I'm weirded out like it's not normal! lol which it totally is, I'm just so used to not seeing it.
I used to think it was a ridiculous thing to spend time training. but honestly, I've gotta admit that when I go to someones home and see their dog licking/scratching away all over people or in the middle of the living room I am very happy that our dogs don't do that lol

BUT.. I hate whining. And her Bichon is a WHINER. Like, toy falls off the bed WHINEEEEEEEEEEEEEE until someone goes to get it kind of thing.

Romeo does not bark often.. but still, he's a chihuahua. His bark is frikin annoying.

Disclaimer: I work for Trupanion and love it/our policy! But I do not speak for the company or as the company.

I teach the dogs to not lick or sniff. Cannot stand licking or sniffing.
