Of course, everyone thinks his or her dog is perfect, right? Yet, we can all find faults in all other dogs. For example, I’m glad my dog doesn’t pull too bad or bark a lot. I’m glad he stays in one spot in the car and shows no aggression.
Then again, I could list off 10 annoying things Ace does do. He can’t heel without a pinch collar or Gentle Leader, he begs pretty bad and let’s just say he licks himself inappropriately. But the most annoying habit other than my dog’s tennis ball obsession is how fast he drinks his water.
Ace will drink and drink and drink so fast that he throws up. He used to never be able to leave any water in a bowl. He would drink the whole bowl immediately. It’s like he thought I was going to take it away even though I was the one who gave him the water in the first place. I did solve this problem by keeping a large bowl of water full at all times. He figured out the water isn’t going anywhere, so he doesn’t have to drink all of it. But he will still come in from outside or randomly walk by his bowl and drink for several minutes if I don’t stop him. Then he throws up all the water. It gets really old cleaning up the floor, sometimes more than once in a day.
Anyway. How about your dogs? What is your dog’s worst habit?
