Poggers0g OP t1_itagsd2 wrote

My feet are in agony from running on cement barefoot. Red and peeled, definitely will need medication to sleep but your right it could have been way worse


The_Dirtiest_Doc t1_itajcdi wrote

is cement code for glass? how far did you run??


Poggers0g OP t1_itass4c wrote

Dog went off cement for a while. It’s kinda hard to describe but I live next to a park with a lot of trees and branches. I live in the Midwest, also running up hill as fast as you can was painful. Edit: the whole running lasted 35 minutes.

How long have you had your dog? Mine is a spazz but if I act calm and call him in for kisses he’ll just walk to me. When I chase him he thinks I’m playing tag.


Poggers0g OP t1_itckh59 wrote

2 and 4 months, he listens to me at home. If I snap he will come to me but outside it’s a different story smh

Bring treats next time. Ain't no dog resisting treats. Better yet, always keep some in your jacket.


BowzersMom t1_itcgqr4 wrote

If he’s running, don’t chase, sit or lay down. He’ll wonder what’s up and come to you


Poggers0g OP t1_itcknow wrote

I tried this, he didn’t look back

I have a beagle and I live in the Midwest. I’ve been in your exact position. He loves us and will come home after like an hour, but if he gets out he does not care whatsoever about me calling him,sitting down to wait for him, or treats unless I get within 5 feet of him to offer them.

I think the looks were less over you wearing pjs and more that you're throwing shit at your dog trying to get it to listen. Maybe you should try actually training your dog like a responsible owner?

My dog has known to come when she's called since she was 4 months old; I've called her back when she's chasing deer and she instantly breaks off the chase to run over to me. It can save your dogs life and training literally takes 20 minutes a day. And yes, I've even worked with huskies, they learn just as fast, I just use play as the reward instead of food with them (and other hyper breeds) since they tend to view you throwing a ball as infinitely more rewarding than a piece of cheese/hotdog. They'll do anything in their power to get you to throw a toy for them.

If you don't have a spare 20 mins a day than damn, I feel really bad for your dog. If you don't have 20 minutes a day to interact with them they must be really lonely.

Edit: Guess I'm being downvoted by people who'd rather have a seriously injured/dead dog than take 20 mins a day to work with that dog.

Edit2: I may have been harsh, but I feel like OP isn't taking the risk to their dog's safety seriously. Here they are, complaining the neighbors saw them in their PJs, seemingly without realizing how lucky they are that their dog wasn't killed. As an owner it is OP's responsibility to keep their dog safe, and that includes basic training. I'm not trying to be rude or condescending but OP needs some sense shaken into them before something tragic happens and it's too late. I've had a dog get hit when I was a kid, it's absolutely awful to lose your best friend like that (not to mention how awful it is for the poor dog). I sincerely don't want OP to have to learn that pain firsthand before they realize how important training is.

No, you're being down voted for your condescending delivery.

I didn't mean it to be condescending, I was hoping a bit of harshness might wake OP up to the fact that their dog could have been seriously injured or killed. I mean here they are complaining that the neighbors saw them in their PJs when they should be beyond grateful that they got lucky and the neighbors didn't see them crying over their dead pet.

I don't think OP is a bad person, but they really need to wake up before it's too late and something tragic happens; if they don't they'll have to live with that guilt for the rest of their lives. And I don't want that for OP or their dog, I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

How is this condescending? They OP is an idiot. Hmmm... if you got a shoe thrown at you, would you listen to that person? This downvoted post is absolutely correct. And not condescending. Train your damn dog or dont own one.


Poggers0g OP t1_itd3tb3 wrote

Your acting like every dog is the same. I wouldn’t directly throw it at him but it’s a last resort thing. It had worked in the past more than half the time if he sees me throwing something he will come too me. I’ve been with dogs for 16 years and have had multiple different breeds. Shibas are just hard to train, you know how much time I spend with these Shibas?

I don't usually vote and I'm not a fan of dogs. But I gave you an upvote because your message is a good one.
