This is just a silly rant (ish). The first full day at home with our new pup, I recorded a very short video for my handful of followers (mostly friends and family). I was surprised that I got comments! One was about how cute he was. Another was that I needed to train him and myself 馃 and another corrected me on my comment that he was "looking for the troubles" and that puppies don't look for trouble....etc. 馃槙 I mean wow, he was only at home for one day and was only 8 weeks old.

I told both that they were 100% right. But sheesh, give me a break! It was only a cute short and I don't think they looked at any of my other videos. I think Y'tube promoted it because it's algorithm knows people like to watch puppies.

It鈥檚 a fun video. People can be so obnoxious. They are trying to show how much they know when they don鈥檛 know you or your experience. An 8 week old puppy doesn鈥檛 need a trainer or intense training. And yes, they can chew anything and cause a lot of trouble if they get into the wrong things. You were very polite.

I actually saw a reportedly 7 week old pup sitting at attention doing sits, downs and paws. Not sure why they started that so young. Maybe they have high expectations of going to IGP nationals or something. But I remember our trainer in Maryland reminding us that "it's OK to let puppies be puppies", and he DID have expectations of going to nationals!

But I didn't comment.

What an absolute cutie-pie! Who cares what anyone says, that's a great "takes me back" video for me. :giggle: Brings back memories. Nothing sweeter than a new pupsie.

It鈥檚 a short. Because of the way they push them, shorts get a lot more views than regular videos. I have a hard time believing anyone who says puppies don鈥檛 go looking for trouble has had a puppy.

That baby floof is just soo cuuute, and I love the sweet GSD hanging out laying down on the other side too.
I so wish we could understand what they are thinking!

And yea sorry that happened, you are just trying to share a cute tiny GSD floof with the world!
It seems to me that the commenters were the actual ones to "go looking for trouble" :ROFLMAO: on the internet.

Stuff like that is why I keep my girl's TikTok private and have only given it out and accepted followers from friends or people I follow and really like. I don't really feel like dealing with negativity about her, and just mostly do it so her breeder can see her in good high-quality video instead of crappy text videos! 馃槅

omg...what a little floofy monster!! He's adorable!
I'd be tempted to mention I wasn't soliciting for advice .... or anything else.
I love his attitude when he responded to you. Puppies don't look for trouble; they are trouble! Love everything about what he is doing.

At least not a German Shepherd or other herding breed.
I've gotten some fairly scathing comments. There's no need to concern yourself with ignorant commenting. You know. They don't.

I'm not too concerned. I just found out ironic that with all the videos and shorts I have, strangers never gave me their 2 cents until now.
I have tendency to use the return comment, " thanks now show me your dog". I actually had someone share nice videos of their work. It was a win-win.

Am I the only one that noticed pup gets cuter each time the video repeats?

Some folks just don't know how to say, "my what a cute puppy you have" an leave it at that.

He can come looking for trouble at my place any time 馃グ

It is hard reading those comments. Even if you know you should brush them off.
