I Hate My Dog

Okay I should start out by saying that he is a great dog. He is obedient, gentle and kind. You could not ask for a better family dog. He is a 90 lb Black Lab. He was a stray and was near death when I found him. He was only 40 lbs. I have dog karma, dogs come to me.

He is old and has arthritis. I have him on medication but he is still pretty stiff. I walk him everyday, well most days. But we do long walks, 3 or 4 times a week and a few short ones too.
His faults are:
  • He stops in front of me, blocking my path, especially in the kitchen. My kitchen is small, I often cannot walk around him. He is kind of deaf and I have to raise my voice for him to move. I hate raising my voice.
  • He goes by the baby when he is eating, the baby touches the dog and then has dog hair on his hands. I have to clean off the dog hair. It bugs me. It is not like I don't let him eat the food that drops. I do.
  • I have to clean up his poop. He likes to walk-and-poop. So he will leave a trail of poop over 10 to 30 feet. I then have to play “find the poop”. 99% of the time he stays on our property, but sometimes I have to visit the neighbors. I hate his leaving poop with the neighbors.
  • I am not someone who wants a dog that does not bark. He is not a dog that barks all day. However, he will bark when dinner is done because he wants the leftovers. I have to clear the table to make him stop. This is after he has been fed. I cannot feed him all the leftovers because he is an old dog and his weight would increase his pain. I hate the noise!
Of course I will miss him terribly when he is gone. He is 11 years old. I know that big dogs, especially strays, don't live that long. I am still nice to him. We have lovies everyday.

Maybe I am just overwhelmed with my kids? Maybe I miss the dog that used to want to play? Maybe I am afraid that he is going to die soon and I am trying to protect myself?

My dog pooped on the kitchen floor this morning. I don't know who told him about the post, but I am sorry now!

I used to think that I was a dog person. We always had dogs when I was growing up. They were a part of the family. Since I've left home for college I've only had a cat since I've had odd hours and no yard since then. Now grown up, my sister has a dog that I'm watching for a night and a day. He's a good dog once he calms down, shits on my carpet 10 mins after his arrival. This dog needs a farm, not the crate and one bedroom apartment that my sister gives him. She and her fiance love this dog. I love my cat even more now. She poops in her box and purrs on my lap. She never eats anything she's not supposed to. "Meow!" is never too distruptive. I'm not a violent person, but sometimes I want to punch the dog in the face, but I know that may only cause him to piss on my carpet again. I'm not a religous peron, but I've found prayer. There's a slight oder in my apartment and I can't find it. I recomend finding a farm or an Animal Rescue League. Maybe they can find a foster home that can acutally help your dog. It doensn't mean you don't have a heart. It may just mean you cannot provide that best environment for the dog. Not any stray that arrives at your door is going to fit in your family. That's ok. BTW- Thanks for letting me vent a little.

My dog hates me since I had children 7 years ago. He has been moping about depressed ever since I brought my boys home from the hospital. The kids don't like him either and he doesn't like them. There is mutual hate all around. He never adjusted to having to share the house with children. Now, he is getting old and crotchety. He bites. My vet says he needs prozac. He is 11 now, I can't give him away at this point. Soon, he will need diapers and a kidney transplant or something. I am sure people are going to tell me how awful I am for saying this but it's true. It is not fun to clean, feed, care for, walk, bathe and finance (600$ for teeth cleaning??!!?) an evil little beast that wishes you were dead. Besides that, I am tired of picking poo off my carpet.

my dog just pissed on the floor because she refused to pee on the 25 minute walk I took her on. we walk in the door, i go to put her in the crate she runs away from me and pisses in the middle of the carpet. I just got this stupid animal 10 days ago. She hates me. and the feeling is starting to be mutual. the lady I adopted her from treated her like a big baby and that is not the case in this house. she is going to be 80 pounds. I can't carry her like the lady did. I can't let her sleep and piss wherever she wanted like I believe the lady did. I can't freaking deal. She is 5 months old and is acting like a complete jerk. It makes me hate her. I feel bad saying that but really. I just can't deal sometimes, most times. I got mad at her and told her no and bad dog and all that and she ran to the crate. I could kill her. why is she doing this to me. I was doing what the books all say to walk and if she doesn't pee on the walk take her in put her in the crate and try again later. I just can handle this. I can't tell anyone in my family because they will just say "I told you not to get a dog" I undersand puppies piss in the house but I think she does it to irritate me. I mean it was a 25 minute walk in 45 degree weather at 2 am. I hate her right now. Any suggestions? What do I do? I just am so angry.

I too used to think i was a dog person..maybe i am, maybe its the small dog breeds I should stay away from. I felt pressured into getting the dog i have now...bad beginning... i have had her going on two years, all i think about is how to get rid of her. She has a weird odor, HORRIBLE breath, she pees in her bedding no matter how often i let her out to pee and then smells because she lays in the peed bedding. On the upside she is sweet and affectionate, good with my 5 year old who can be rough at times,but the fact remains that I am not enjoying her and i dont know what to do with her. I would love for some lonely older person to take her, for a lap dog/companion. In addition to my already hectic and stressful life I cant do her justice. Help.

AMEN, i hate my dog too... ever since i had a baby and my large dog is around...and my husband left to iraq and left me in charge of dog for a year...bah humbug...please die dog...ugh

i know i know bad ...sweet dog,... something about having a baby made me loathe her.. ick. please someone come take her away!

Not on Fire said...

When I had a baby I felt guilt about not being as interested in the dog and then I was mad at the dog for making me feel bad. Not logical, but true.

I have a new dog. He is pretty good, but needs an hour of walking a day or he is crazy. Yes, I know, what was I thinking. He is a great dog, as long as he gets his walks.

If I was to give advice. More walks, consistency in behaviour and deep breathing relatation.

You guys are fucking idiots. You are taking out your frustrations---and your parental incompetence---on your poor dogs. I have two kids---ages 2 and 5--- and I love to see them interact with our two dogs. My dogs love my kids and at the same time my kids gain respect and compassion for animals. Mind you my dogs were here before my kids. Oh yeah, my dogs are fully housebroken cause I took the time and responsibility to do so. Patience is key, I have learned that from being a first grade for the past seven years. Don't get a dog if when the novelty is over, you realize your life is better without them.

Not on Fire said...

Well Anonymous, you lack the guts to post under a name and you missed my point entirely. My dog was housebroken and probably the sweetest dog you have ever met, but he was old and sick. We had to put him down. He was pooping on the floor because he was senile.

My post was about the very human frustrations that I felt in that moment. I hope you have more compassion for your kids that you did for me.

Best blog comments EVER! I don't hate my dog...not all the time. The truth is, my dog hates me. He's been depressed ever since we adopted him two months ago. He just lies around the house doing nothing. He doesn't bark, doesn't come to greet me, doesn't come when I call, doesn't take treats or bribes. He won't eat unless he's absolutely starving or I'm not looking. My husband walks by him and says, "I think your dog is dead." I feel like I need to pump my dog up with drugs just to get a reaction out of him. The only thing I can count on my dog to do is pee all over my carpet, even though he is doggie litter box trained. Last week, he walked over to my mother-in-law and peed/marked her leg, ruining her pants. He has perfect bladder control, because he only pees when he wants to pee at the worst time and in the worst places. I've tried training him, bribing him, praising him, reprimanding him, cuddling him, you name it. All he does is stare at me with this look that reads, "who the hell are you?" He still hates me, and what's the point of even having a dog if he hates you? Isn't it an oxymoron to own a dog that hates his person? I have showered this pooch with exercise, goodies, love, activities, and good vet care. I have now started putting him in doggie daycare just so he can have some "happy" time with his dog friends...which are the only things he DOES like. I spend a ton of money on doggie daycare to try to keep him happy. When I pick him up, you'd think he would be a happy dog, but nope, he comes home depressed and mopey all over again. I think I want to leave him at doggie daycare and never pick him up again. Then maybe, he'll finally be happy.

Thank you - I thought this was just me. Since I have had a baby now 20 months ago my dogs drive me mad. Prior to having the baby I worked full time so I suppose I never saw the real them. I have always accepted they are totally bonded with my husband. They drive me mad. They bark the entire time I try to put my son down to bed, shed hair once I have cleaned, stand in the way when I am carrying. My son loves them and they love him. I just can't cope with them. I am glad it is not just me!!

I am so happy to read these, because I hate my dog, too!! He is a good dog, by most standards. Obedient, doesn't chew, friendly to people... but the barking and the constant energy and the unbelievable shedding and the neurotic herding dog thing (and more, oh, heck yes...) drive me insane. I can't give him up because my daughter says it will wreck her life. All my friends say I need to suck it up and deal. Well, he makes my life a constant struggle to not somehow fake his disappearance, or make his death look like an accident. Just looking at him infuriates me.
The "Anonymouses" of the world try to make you feel like a total animal hater for not liking your dog. Well, s/he should try to live with him. There is such a thing as "the wrong dog for you", and this one is it. I think it is sad that this one has to live with me, because I'm sure that someone, somewhere, would love him.... but I'm stuck with him, I hate him, and I feel everyone's pain here!

i Love this posting :-) I have 2 dogs. no kids, married. While am all life for my dogs, it drives me crazy. I make them spend all the time with me (work from home plus student). While LONG walks help them curb their behavior, none of the training actually works. My first dog mellowed down with exercise hes just 3. Hes now adorable. But my second one, i hate her now. Infact she was whining the whole 1.5 hours of trail walk yesterday that it ruined my complete composure. she whines while seeing people from house, she whines in a car ride, she whines SO much. Gone to vet - shes hale and healthy which is great. it is a behaviour problem and NO, dogs do not emulate owner's personality. People keep telling me this a lot :-(


For people who "LOVE" dogs, it is similar to people who talk "GREEN"...they think they can advise and have a holier than thou attitude. but come one we are humans and we have our short comings..i think negative e3motions are natural EVEN with kids. how many parents are so caring after the kids get a personality? Sure it is definitely the way we "handle" things..but dogs too can be real nightmare. I am planning to ignore her for ever, no smiles or love, just as a duty will feed her exercise her groom her.thats it, am this close to going insane.

Thanks so much for this post. I thought ppl might think am a bad person or something. I would love to have you all as my friends...atleast all are true to yourselves. - Anne, Seattle, WA

Hi, I loved reading everyones comments. I hate my dog too. He just sits and stares at me all day waiting for me to service him......I have asked people who own dogs , I give him everything, why can't he go chase spiders, or play with the 15 toys he has or take a nap on his 50 dollar bed or eat his expensive food....I got him one month ago...an adorable ShihTzu...I do love his face and he really is a good dog I would never be mean to him...he is taking my peace of mind away from me. I got the dog for good reasons, I am single home all day working and I cater to him more than my Job. I hate him but I love him..I am becoming obsessed with him because he freaks me out when he just sits there quietly and stares at me with this intense wanting look...right into my eyes...What the f--- does he want??? He is mking me highly neurotic and stressed ..help I have only had him 2 months and every day I want to find him a new home....STOP STARING AT ME!!!!!!

WOW I thought I was the only one who felt this way about a dog! I feel like we have made a mistake getting him. I wake up 3 times a night just to take him out,and what happens? HE PEES! I had to give him a bath at 3am! I dont know about other people but I could not even sleep because i felt dirty,even if I take a shower,I still feel dirty after. That same day I didnt get a chance to take him out at all. why?? because all he would do is pee in the damn house! ughhhh! That was honestly one of my worst days ever since we've had him. I ususall take him out 10 times a day,but that day all he did was pee and pee and pee in the house, I literally gave him like 6 baths because of him peeing..and for everyone wondering,no he does not have a bladder infection or anything.

Thank goodness there are more people out there who feel the same way as I do. I really, really hate my dog. We got him about 6 months ago, after about two years of debating what breed to get. I have had about 5 dogs in my life, and this is the first time I have ever hated my dog. I am not working, so I spend a lot of time with him. I have invested hundreds of hours in training, coaching, playing, exercising with him. The jerk still pees wherever he feels like it. I am tired of him picking through anything he finds. He has the gall to jump on chairs and snatch food. It's not cute, and I seriously loathe him. My kids will not even discuss giving him away. I have found prayer, begging a higher authority for even more patience on an hourly basis. I am also hoping for a happy resolution, a miracle, by which he either starts behaving well, or that he disappears. Thanks for listening to me vent.

Not on Fire said...

Since this is my blog, I am going to leave some advice here. The dog thinks that he is dominant and so he don't care what you say or want. The dog is making all the decisions. Do two weeks of "no touch, no talk, no eye contact".

If you get upset it shows weakness. You must be calm and emphatic in all interactions.

Get into a routine of walking in the morning for at least 1/2 hour, preferably an hour. Then do some obedience work like sit, stay etc. Then feed the dog after the exercise and obedience.

It will not be an instant change, but it will be better than doing nothing.

I hope that your relationship improves.

Wow. I am glad to see this thread. I grew up on a farm where the dogs, we always had dogs, ran and chased and investigated. When I got married, my husband missed having a dog, although we live in town and I don't understand having a dog inside. I thought it would be good for him to get a dog. Now this dog thinks he's mine and he stares at me constantly and I don't enjoy him in the least. When I put him outside he just lays there waiting to come back in. I am trying to look at it as a challenge and learn to be compassionate. Most days I just feel guilty for not loving him more. Everyone tells us he is a perfect dog. That is even harder to forgive myself for. He does nothing wrong but get excited when we come home, shed constantly and poop inside maybe once a month. I just can't bond with him and feel horrible about my status. I feel I am a loving person. I just don't love him and don't look forward to another seven or eight years under the same roof. Thanks for this site. I needed it.

i know there ought to be ways to just keep learning, fixing the problems, since these animals are our responsibility. my problem is i'm exhausted. "don't yell" sure. wtf ever. have you ever been up for days trying to get sleep when the beast never shuts up? oh, but wait, it gets better. he ain't barking. not usually. he's WHINING. he's lazy, cries, won't eat, unless it's forbidden, acts stupid or superior during lessons. this dog is a mess. i know it needs some kind of inspiration to behave, to be content, but my family dotes on it, and crates it, or walks it, or does everything the expensive trainer tells them to, and this beast actually comes across as haughty! just stands there, ignoring the piss out of anyone, except the trainer of course. how can you love an animal who appears to have no respect for the hand that feeds it? i would love to give it freedom, or security, or comfort, but nothing works, as we must be doing everything wrong! oh, now there's some encouragement. you're a shitty owner, dog hates you, neighbors hate you, buy the most expensive items and do what your told, you'll never be good enough. this mutt that you rescued from daily neglect could care less that you exist, unless of course he can't come sit THISCLOSE. then, of course, he just whines till you scream and your head pops off and shoots across england.

I probably have the best dog that ever existed. She is perfect and amamzing - everyone loves her. She was my world and I used to be so close to her...until I got pregnant. Since I had my baby I cant even stand the site of my dog and to think that I have to see her face for the next 8 years makes me really depressed. I am starting to feel regretful that we ever got her in the first place. I dont know what happened but its horrible and I wish I loved her the way I used to. I feel so bad about how I feel towards her especially because she is so good with my baby and my baby just loves her. She hasnt done anything wrong - but I get so nervous and upset when I see her every morning and every time she tries to come into the same room as me. I hate being home with her all day and smelling her smells and watching her walk around the entire house just making it dirty and smelling. I am never mean to her but I never show her any attention at all. I try to pretned she doesnt exist. i just never want her around and never let her come near me. What happened to me? Can someone shed some light on this situation?

Maybe you don't like your dog as much because now he is just a dog. You are busy and don't want to put energy into a dog when there is a baby now.

Taylaaa said...

i have a rescue dog. she came from the pound with a fairly dodgy history, given her behaviour. Now, i got given this puppy as a small child and nearly peed myself with excitement, because this brand new puppy was mine and i loved every puppy that ever was. now i'm not saying she hasn't improved, because over time.. she has drastically. my dogs problem is that she cannot resist to lick you. if you show any form of movement she'll come at you, tongue at the ready. i understand why she gets nervous, but getting nipped by a dog at a young age was the end of the world.

i'm not saying i hate my dog, because i don't.. i love my dog to pieces... i just wish she'd understand that she can calm down around us... she's now 13 and is the same. bless her heart. <3

Thank you for this post. I started to giggle. My partner has two dogs. He knew I'm not a dog person and I agreed to take them on if they were 'well behaved' 3 years later and taking the time to try & train the little shits & they're still crapping on the carpet and pissing on everything. (This is good?!!) The girl even did it infront of my partner & he behaved as if it was unusual!! I will never have dogs any where near me again. I was dog tolerant before & now I'm not. The one I got as a rescue only went once in the house the whole time we had him cos he was sick. (Fine.) These two are just VILE.

I understand what you mean, Not on Fire. My girlfriend said get a new dog before lily goes, so I did and fell in love with him. Lily was old and slept a lot, had horrible breath (my fault), needed medication all the time for collapsing trachea and cushings disease brought on by the steroids, sometimes I slept on the floor next to her when I thought it was her last night but she kept on, I held her over countless steam baths to help her breath and nursed her though the scary and horrible time she almost died of collapsing trachea.It was just like looking after an elderly person and carers of human family members get pretty overwhelmed sometimes too. I felt at times "wouldn't it be nice to just enjoy my new active happy bouncy dog without her in the way" which was horrible to feel because I loved her so much. I think what helped me was just realizing that people feel that way (as in its too hard) about their elderly dependent family members and send them off to nursing homes for someone else to care for. At least we are kinder to our dogs and keep them at home where they are comforted by being in familiar territory. Well done for caring for yours when you are giving to him your care, time, love with nothing so much in return, I know you understand that when things are hardest is when you are showing him the most love.
When he does go, you will remember that you cleaned his poop and put up with him furring up the baby (he just loves the baby) and you will be grateful for being able to have done this for him even though it was difficult and tested your nerves. You will have no guilt because you did the hard yards for him.

I have two dogs that are 5 and 4 years old, I got one when I was 16 and one when I was 17. I've always loved animals, and I thought I was a dog person, but now that I am getting older and I'm 21, I'm finding I dislike my dogs more and more every day. The 5 year old is clicker trained, and the 4 year old was traumatized when I got him from the pound. They are nice dogs, playful, and fun. But each day I notice more and more habits that drive me crazy! If I leave panties on the floor, I can expect them to be chewed up (I keep my house spotless so nothing will be chewed). They jump and bark hysterically whenever company comes over, they bark at strangers when we walk down the street even though they are too afraid to attack people. They fart constantly, they pee and poop on the floor. I can't take my eyes off these dogs for two minutes when they are outside or they will destroy the yard and dig three foot deep holes. They constantly stand in my way, causing me to trip over them. They choose to run up and down the stairs only when I am going up and down the stairs...I've almost fallen a few times, especially when carrying heavy objects. Once I was carrying my giant gaming computer down the stairs and without warning my dogs barreled past me down the stairs, almost causing me to drop my computer and fall. I feel bad because I want to love all of God's creatures, but sometimes I feel like a tired single mom or something. I don't enjoy having to watch these dogs constantly like they are children, but I understand since I took them in I'm pretty much stuck with them. I do feel like a bad person, I feel as though I should be more understanding and patient, but it's hard sometimes.

I just believe that dogs are like people in that some are nice, some are funny, and some are just a-holes. I just got a dog and consider myself a dog person, but I'm starting to think I'm an other peoples dog person.
I used to love my back yard, now if I don't go out every morning and clean up piles of dog poop, I'm greeted with the lovely stench of feces every time I go out there.
I'm also greeted with the holes being dug in the grass, and piles of toys lying all around.
Walk the dog 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the afternoon? Would LOVE to have that kind of time, but like most people I'm out there trying to make a living.
I think it's ok to hate your dogs. We can't be expected to love all actions. Just the ability to come on a website and vent about it is better than actually abusing an animal.
My 2 cents anyway...

It's November 2011 and this is an old blog. But I feel so bad I yelled at my dog and lost my temper with her. I was so close to her before my baby was born and then the hair and dirtiness bothered me butI still loved my dog. And then she would poop on the carpet from drinking dirty water in the patio area. I had to clean it up at 5 in the morning when I found it. She is always in my way and doesn't move when she sees me in front of her. We have moved recently and she is sooo skittish and freaked out about everything. Even when I make her food and tell her to have dinner she is freaked out. She doesn't listen well when we are out and it's just so frustrating. Why can't see be NORMAL like she used to be. I tried to give her to a better home where she could live on a ranch but my husband wouldn't let me. I feel quilty. I still take her out to play with the ball and try to help her through the move and her anxiety over it but it is true, I have so much going on with my toddler, being 35 weeks pregnant, I have been separated from my husband for 8 months, packed a 2 bedroom apartment by myself and we are now trying to work things out. Now I'm dealing with bad plumbinbg issues and can wash dishes!!! So I'm washing bottels in the bathroom sink. We have money issues so I'm stressed about that. I have been trying to be strong and calm the last few months and just feel I can't get a break.

My poor dog. I am stressed and it's hard to find patience to take care of her. I sometimes really wish I could give her away to a better home or if she could just be normal like she used to be and not so freaked out. Urgh.

What is wrong with you people? I can only imagine that your children are or will be as poorly trained as your pets. And if you can't handle all of the responsibility you have taken on, you are the only one to blame.
Yes. Taking care of things is difficult. Children, pets, husbands, friendships. Whew! I'm exhausted just thinking about it. People and animals get sick that can't be a news flash and what do you think your showing your children about unconditional love and accepting responsibility for things that are yours to care for? I know a couple of you will be ending up in a home. I have a friend who not only has two boys and a dog with diabetes but a water dragon too! That eats crickets!! Let me tell you there is not a lot if reciprocal affection there.
If you can't do it then make better choices and for
the rest of us. If your dog is too much for you then
please. Please. Refrain from having children.

Finally a place where you can vent!! My friend thought she was doing me a favour by getting the people from the s.p.c.a. to show me a black lab/rottie cross, since we had lost our rottie a few months previous. Of course it played on my emotions because it was part rottie and reminded me of Aja...so we ended up adopting it. Big mistake!!! It doesn't listen, it still pees (and sometimes craps) on the floor, it barks nonstop, it licks the couch like a friggin lollipop, it doesn't appreciate anything, no personality, void of emotion, and puts on a big scared act for attention when people come over. Keep in mind we've had this dog for 4 years and it was an adult when we got it. I thought these traits would ease up and she would settle in but no. Now I just resent her and I don't know what to do. She's also very jealous of our pug and tries to hog the attention, steal her food, and push her out of the way all the time..but now I just push her out of the way. My husband is a pushover and isn't consistent with the training and that really ticks me off, too. I'm really starting to resent this dog and wish it would just disappear. All you dog activists have obviously never had bad experiences like these before, so please get off your high horse. It only makes things worse.

Well i didnt have dogs, but my fiance did. He treated them like humans half the time and THEY controlled him! When we gor married, i tolerated them, them we had a baby. Now i cant stand them!! We finally found a new home for our hound on a farm, perfect for a howling dog! But our lab is killing me. I feel
Like my house is always dirty, he constantly sneaks up and sleep on my new couches. Eats Any food my baby has. Then he wagged his tail so hard in him crate one time he cut it and splat blood all over my walls in my New house we just built 3 months ago! There is hair everywhere imaginable, i cant stand it, but if i put him outside to clean he barks the loud deep annoying bark the whole time!!!! We can barely afford to even go out of town to visit my family bc his bill at the kennel was almost $400 one time! (boarding, shots, bath) I wish he would run away any never come back!!!!!!

I feel you. I have Abby, a year old huge german shepherd. My husband is an only child and loves dogs, loves them. He's been pressuring me about a dog for years. Well I caved in a moment of weakness. Now I have my two boys 3&4 and this dog. She's a PAIN in the ASS. She jumps fences, she's agressive toward everyone outside of our house or entering our house, its so much work. I have her house trained and put her in a kennel when I leave (2 holes repaired to the carpet). She's not terrible and listens its just so much more work. My husband's deployed to make matters worse. She is my shadow, every where I go there's Abby. Not a moment of peace. Im sad about it really, I tried so hard with her and feel as if I cant enjoy her. I would never take her to the park or for walks with the kids because she's really really mean to strangers. I thought when we got a dog, it would be nice to be those people at the park really enjoying their pet. Nope, I'm just trying to keep my sanity at this point. Its extremely overwhelming and without a doubt if I could go back in time, I would not own her. But she's here now and well thats all I can say about it....

I can almost guarantee no one hates a dog more than I hate my two beagles. Please allow me to explain why...

reason 1: I was sued my a neighbor due to my dogs' excessive barking went to court and got a judgement to move out within 30 days. I would have preferred to simply shoot the two bitches, but my wife and kids wanted to still keep them

reason 2: I can't have friends or family over because they two beagles will bark at them from the moment they arrive, until the moment they leave

reason # 3. We cannot eat in peace without the dogs attempting to steal food from my children's plates, hands or mouth.

reason # 4. Dogs get into the waste baskets in the bathrooms and garbage can in kitchen for fun and drag the trash all over the house looking for food

reason # 5 Dogs will urinate and deficate all over the place.

The dogs respect only mean because I physically punish pretty mush daily because every day they cause a problem. They cost me over $100 a month is food and medicine and I feel like they are taking years off my life due to the stress they cause. I think one day when no one is home, I will take their collars off, and accidentally leave the back door open.

What all the dog hates need to know is that in all 50 states a dog is considered property. You can throw your dog away just like you do an old couch. Why keep something causing so much pain. Get rid of the damn thing already!

Anyone who says they hate theyre dog, shoudnt have a dog! Having a dog is obviously going to come with the fact of cleaning up after them and them doing little things that may annoy you. But theyre companionship should be what means the most. And if it doesnt, you dont deserve to have them...

Jesus, if you hate your dogs, then stop being so fucking idiotic and give them away. There's always someone that will take care of them. Seriously, how can you hate a dog? They do nothing, if they do something the makes you feel unconfortable, well,they're not doing it on purpose. They can't dislike people, they just react. I love my dog so much, he is a beautiful little thing, though he doesn't likes being around me. He would leave if I appear or just ignore me, but it's really not him it's something about me. At least I have the guts to admit that, you ignorant fuckers. Hope you people die in pain xx

I absolutely hated my dog at first when he was a puppy, but I stuck with it and now he is great

Tami said...

Oh this makes me feel so much better. I have 5 dogs all rescues, 2 of the dogs are my babies, 2 of them are great just not as loveable as the "babies" one I hate to say sadly I cannot stand. He is almost 15 years old (has always been a jerk dog!)Don't get me wrong I am not mean to this dog, I have just finally reached my breaking point. He pees everywhere, poops and then dancing through it..ugh, he smells awful and so on. I have considered eunthenasia, but I feel like it's putting me out of the misery, because he seems happy. But it is making my life not very pleasurable. Thanks for letting me vent!

Im just going to take her collar off and drop her off in the country 30 miles away. getting excited just thinking about doing it. Fuck all you animal lovers, There are actual humans starving out there and you're worried abt a damn dog

We have a 6 month old son and we adopted a rescue dog who is 4 months old. My fiancee convinced me this is a great idea. It was against my better judgement because I never liked dogs or any pets. The dog is actually a good dog but I feel like he is a burden, takes away from my time with my son and training/teaching the dog is so NOT rewarding because I don't like him. I'd rather focus on my sweet baby and put all my attention there because even a little smile from the baby is more rewarding than if the dog could do the laundry and cook dinner. I feel bad giving the dog away because this is his "home" and my fiancee loves him and he's good with the baby too.... I want to give him a chance but for what??

I know this is an old blog, but I really feel for everyone here. I seriously hate my family's boxers and I can't get along with them no matter what I do. They are like evil sociopath dogs that pretend to like you, but then turn around and make your life a living hell. Good luck training one of these monsters because they will never really learn anything, they can't read people's emotions worth a darn, and they take "no" as a personal challenge to see what they can get away with. For example, the boxer that pulled on his leash and got into garbage did that his whole life, and the boxer that jumped up on windows and furniture did that as long as I've known her despite repeated efforts to get them to stop. By contrast, I was able to easily train my cat to sit, run through obstacles, and generally be well-behaved. Who's the better dog here? What's worse is my family, who loves these demons, tries repeatedly to shove them down my throat insisting I'm the one with a problem. I've tried telling them there is such thing as the wrong dog for you (because I do love other dogs) and showing them expert advice to back it up, but they still think if they can cram the dogs in my face enough without modifying their annoying behavior that I will just magically like them. Guess what? That ain't gonna happen.

You know what's really not fair is that I've read comments from people disliking their herding breeds and I know those would be the right dogs for me. If only there was a way to swap dogs because I know as much as I hate boxers, they would be right for other people. Thank you for letting me vent. This is one of the only places I feel I can be honest about this.

Ohh boy..here it goes. My dog is a year and a half old 80lb. mixed mut. Got him when he was a widdle baby. He has always been a litttle shit head & still is. But he is a good boy with a great temperment and a lover and hes actually very smart. BUT....ever since ive gotten pregnant im starting to wish my life without him. He has an allergy of some sort were not sure what it is but its making all his hair fall off his rear end which makes him look disgusting, rabid & diseased. We've tried switching foods and medicated shampoos. Nothing works. He's constantly itching, licking, sniffing, biting his ass NON STOP its so annoying. He eats his blankets in his crate and then barfs. when he takes shits he spins around in circles and steps in his shit. He cant walk on the hard floors without wiping out bc hes terrified of them...im affraid hes going to throw a hip out...that would be expensive. And he barks at EVERY LITTLE NOISE and doesnt atoo when i tell him too. Sometimes I just want to punch him!

I hate my dog intensely for a couple of days every month - yes, I am female. He's a great dog if he gets exactly what he wants, like 2 hr walks in the a.m, steak mince, steak, chicken or salmon. If I give him anything other than these things he won't eat. He sits shaking next to me - which I think is just plain acting - cute little fecker. I think this is all my fault as I believe I have let him become the alpha - I have Borderline Personality Disorder which means I can be inconsistent & neurotic - sometimes I yell at him which makes him see me as unstable. Mostly I love him a lot & we have a really good time & I would never physically hurt him - this is really upsetting for me. A small part of me wants to give him up but I know despite everything he loves me too. It has helped me immensely reading your rants & anonymous I never wanted children. I hate them.

Its 2014 and the only reason I don't wish my toy poodle would drop dead is because I'd have to take time to get rid of the bitches body. Hate Her.

My boyfriend, who I live with, has a small dog who he SPOILED like crazy!! Always cuddling and letting her lick in his mouth. Ive always been a dog lover. But our dogs have always had boundaries! They dont sleep in the bedroom or go on the furniture. This spoiled behavior has turned his dog into a demon! She used to growl at me if I went near him, now she attacks our other dog for the same reason! Shes extremely territorial and possessive. Especially if him. She even turned on me once! The worst part is he still thinks she's the greatest. When I try to give her rules or boundaries, or lock her up after attacking our dog, he says im too harsh and that im picking on her because I dont like her. Truth is, she's the first dog ive ever HATED . Hate entirely! I cant stand her or how he coddles her. And guess what, im going to be with him forever, shes only a puppy so welcome to my life for the next 15 years! Plus ive always dreamt of getting my owb dog since I was little. Cant do that when she'll teach it aggression!!!! I understand the frustration entirely.

Well that's YOUR experience and opinion. Others have different experiences and opinions. I hate my dog too now that I have a baby. She is aggravating and just one more thing I have to divide my already sparse time up between. She wastes my time when I take her out to use the bathroom and she just sniffs around lije an asshole and never uses it and begs to go back out as soon as I bring her in because she has to use it and didn't when we were outside the first time. I do not mistreat her, and I still love her, but I am aggravated by and resentful of her. My dog is not a "novelty". She is/was my furbaby for 3 years before I had my daughter, but having a kid changed my relationship to the dog. It's not her fault and it's not my fault. It just happened. Much like relationships between humans change given any set of circumstances. My dog is a good dog. She uses it outside, is trained etc. She is just annoying now. Doesn't make me a bad person or her a bad dog so please keep your judgmental opinion to your (apparently perfect) self.

Haha! I don't mean to laugh at your distress, but that is hilarious. I just imagine this tiny furball staring at you incessantly where ever you go. That sounds aggravating as all hell. Sorry your dog has psycho love. Lol!

Anonymous said...

Same here. I don't hate her, but it's her being so dirty that annoys me. She is always shedding, licking' smacking, vomiting. I just want to punch her in the face. I never would or mistreat her, but after having the baby the dog seriously aggravates the ever living hell out of me. Every time I drop my baby's pacifier on the floor and I pick it up covered in her frickin' hair a slow flame inside me starts burning. I am so annoyed by this dog I can't stand it.

Bitch please shut up. A child is not the same as a dog. That's the problem with people like you. You put a dog on the same level as a chilsld. YOU please don't have children. You'd put the baby outside so the dog could be more comfortable.

Ugh. Just shut up.

That's what I have. I am so fucking sick of her hair everywhere. It annoys me to no end after having my baby. It was always annoying pre-baby, but I could handle it and not freak out about it. After having the baby though, everytime I see her friggin fur everywhere I am immediately filled with rage.

I found this blog while I was trying to find help. Basically, I want to stop being horrible to my partner's dog. He had her before we met, she's a tiny Maltese.
She's a rescued dog. My partner found her in a field, shivering and in bad shape, and took her in- she was 10 at the time. She's 13 now. He spoils her because he feels sorry for her. She sleeps on the bed, and cuddles on his lap while he eats.
Problem is, I don't like her. She is whiny, needy, clingy, and she stinks. She's deaf, so as soon as we're out of her sight, she'll whine or bark because she thinks we're gone. She's with us all the time. She even stays on the bed when we have sex. She irrates the hell out of me. Sometimes I feel rage towards her and I wish she was dead. Sometimes I hit her because she does things that annoy me, like pee or poop in the house, come back from outside with dirty paws, or bark and whine. Then I remember she's just a helpless little thing that was once abandoned and I tell myself I'm a horrible person for treating her that way. She is scared of me. She cowers in front of me. This is awful! I just want to stop being horrid to her, but when I feel overcome by rage I feel powerless to stop myself. I need help.

My husband and I adopted an abused shelter dog (a labrottie) about eight years ago. It's been a trying time to say the least. She constantly tries to jump on the living room furniture and succeeds when we're not around (we've already had to throw out a loveseat) and to make matters worse she has bladder incontinence. I've now had to resort to putting things on top of the furniture to make her stop. She also barks like crazy if anyone comes to the house, which is slightly annoying. On the flip side, however, she can be so lovable at times and she has come a long way with her trust issues and behavioual problems. Being an abused dog, she used to be sooo skittish and scared of everyone, especially men. Although she still initially barks her face off at visitors, she will now quickly settle down and behave nicely after a few minutes, whereas before she would have been pacing and panting for the duration of the visit. At first I sympathized with her skittish behaviour and chalked it up to "bad nerves" from being abused but after awhile it really started pissing me off. I noticed my husband would coddle her and shower on the sympathy and affection whenever she did this, so I told him to cut it out and ignore her instead. She eventually stopped the act when she wasn't getting his attention anymore and started behaving like a normal dog. Dogs are smart and they know how to take advantage of your kind nature...so never allow the dog to walk all over you just because they were abused. This just reinforces bad behaviour and they'll never learn to settle down and be a good pet. Dogs know the difference between being assertive and being abusive, so never worry that you're going to "traumatize" the dog even more by being firm. Staying in control and showing them who's boss will make them respect you...not scared of you. Now if I could only stop her from jumping on the damn furniture :(

I went in search of a solution for my problem when My husband wants to divorce me. we was married for 13 years and we have been through a lot, he has cheated on me before but I forgave him because I love him and moved on but later again he met a girl at work and thinks he is in love with her, so one day he told me he wants a divorce, for me I don't because I still loved him I know this must sound stupid but never wanted him go. I tried to make him see he is making a mistake but everything went wrong, I loved him so much but he refused to change his mind, i waited for him to come his senses but nothing worked so i had to contact a spell caster for help because i knew that will be the best solution, then i contacted manifestspellcast@yahoo.com to help me to unite i and my lover and finally i came to the spot of getting him back which was awesome, my husband came back home, It felt good to have my lover back, Manifest Spell has a real Magic, his spell is real!!!! Dr.Manifest is wonderful.
