I am so **** mad.
Every time...EVERY **** TIME...
I work/play/train with my boys, I always encounter that one person who's like,
"Oh. My. God. How could you?! No dog should ever have to work all day. You're taking away the essence of them being able to live their lives as dogs by placing so many demands on them. You're a terrible dog owner! My dog is just fine, even though he has no manners, doesn't listen to any of my requests, attack my children, neighbors, dogs, and even myself sometimes to get what they want. So what if they bark, it's called being a dog!"
...it's so hard not to take it personal.
Especially when people insult my babies...it sends me in a RAGE. I get so protective and defensive, and with having PTSD and trying to train my own Service Dogs, sometimes it gets mentally frustrating and there have been times where. I almost ripped out this womans throat for telling me that my boys are "just dogs" as if they have no value. I can't STAND it.
So my question is...what do I say? How do I tell people to back off and let me do my thing without being offended? And how do I draw the line to where once I do, there's no crossing it so I can properly train my babies in peace and confidence?
