Favorite and Least Favorite Useless Commands?
Not sure where to place this thread. (sorry)
I've learned that usually the less said to my dog reflects better on her behavior. But, I do catch myself talking to her (not really expecting a specific response).
I call this my "useless command"
Personally, I'm fond of "Jeez Louize! Alice!"
and Zoey's is "Shut Up or I'll sell you to the circus!"
I think my least favorite are:
(usually heard at a dogpark)
"No Jumping" in a praise tone
"Get down" (for jumping) in a praise tone
"gentle" in a praise tone (for dominant aggressive behavior)
It's probably just me; I'm turning into a grumpy old lady.
