I’ve got 5 signs of a spoiled dog for you today. Most of the time, having a spoiled dog isn’t a problem at all. Sometimes a spoiled dog may start having issues. I’ll go over what to watch out for if you do live with a spoiled pup.
5 Signs Your Dog Is A Spoiled Dog
1. Your Dog Lies On The Furniture
Bailie broke the furniture rule when she moved in. Mom gave up and we all enjoy lying on the couches. They are really quite comfy. It is a bit of work keeping them clean but Mom doesn’t mind.
If your dog lies on your furniture and doesn’t move for you, then you may have a problem. Make sure your dog knows you come first when it comes to who gets to sit on the furniture.
2. There Are Way Too Many Dog Toys In Your House
We have toys everywhere in our house. There is this huge pile in our toy room too. As much as we love some of our toys, we always drop them when asked by Mom.
Toys are also not to be defended between pets or humans. If you want a toy your dog has, she needs to drop and let you have it. No growling or snapping to try to keep a toy.
3. Treats Are In An Endless Supply
We have a treat drawer, treat cupboard, and some in the freezer. Running out of treats is not going to happen here!
Treats are not the same as meals and if your pup is getting some tight fitting furs from over snacking, it is time to cut back. As with humans, food is to provide nutrition and enjoyment, but it is not to be abused. Extra weight means the treats need to be cut back, and maybe meals as well.
4. Your Bed Is Also Your Dog’s Bed
If your dog isn’t sleeping in your bed, you all are missing out. We love it and so does Mom. She says it is like having her childhood stuffed animals in real life. We share and get up and move when asked.
Dogs who take over the bed, don’t move or won’t let you in your own bed need to learn it is a privilege not a right to sleep in a human’s bed.
5. If You Can’t Take Your Dog, You Won’t Go
If you can’t take your dog to something, will you still go? Mom hates to leave us behind but sometimes it is necessary. There are people who will stay home because they can’t bring their dog somewhere.
Make sure your dog behaves well when you take her along, but also go places without her sometimes. It is good for both of you to have some alone time.
What do you think, do you have a spoiled dog in your house?
