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.

LOL- My boyfriend let the dogs out last weekend and when they came back in they were covered in mud. So I asked him... "did you wipe their paws off?? Because they are covered in mud." And he says... "I told them not to run in the mud!".... When in the world did you teach them that command....

-Jamie-

No matter how bad my day has been.... coming home to them makes it all better.

Nellie -3 yr old GSD & Ace -2 yr old GSD

That's hilarious! Well, clearly it is not his fault...

If finding the general public a little bit "annoying" especially the average dog owner is the criteria for being a grumpy old woman, I'm right there with ya!

Too many years as a service worker, working on weekends. People tend to leave their brains in their offices at five o'clock on Fridays.

Maybe not a command but it pisses me off when owners of little dogs think its cute that their stupid dog trys to attack a big dog. NO HE IS BRAVE!!!! HE IS STUPID!!! Oh and heaven forbid the big dog so much as grunts about it.

I really hurt my knee badly in Nov. So, I've been walking the girls one at a time. When I have the GSD and that happens....I tell them, "Cool, she hasn't eaten today"
Happens a lot at the outdoor shopping center I walk Alice at, attack of the purse dogs. If my GSD acted like that I'd be in jail.

Emoore, No kidding!

I think Im turning into a grumpy old lady too the other day at the dog park a woman was sat at a bench and her dog was barking at her kids, They were playing football and I had Nero on the lead as we were leaving the park, This woman was saying as her dog was barking and lunging (good boy- good boy) If anything I would of just got up and took the dog away from the situation it obviously wanted to play rather than be half strangled!!!

Oh god, that drives me up the wall. Especially when people do it to MY dogs and they tilt their heads and look back like "lady/man what the f is wrong with you?"
