Has anyone put a "don't pet me" shirt/vest on their puppy before?
I'm getting my 8 week old puppy on Friday and will soon be bringing him with me to work. I work at a large, big box pet store and I see hundreds of dogs each week which get way over excited when they meet new people. Well, I will be bringing my pup to work soon, and I was thinking about getting him one of those "In training, do not pet" vests or shirts.
My reason is he would get to see lots of people at my job, but most wouldn't actually give him too much attention. And when someone asks why he can't be pet, I can just explain he has to be sitting and calm before someone pets him (in which I can then put him into a sit and monitor while they pet). Now, I've never done this before, and in theory I think it sounds great. Has anyone else ever tried this and had any success?
