Your pet is your own responsibility.
I know we all like to think of our pets as family members. However, especially when it comes to specific dog breeds, they need to be trained. Because while they might be the loveliest and calmest dogs when they are with you, dogs can get pretty possessive so might exhibit violent behaviour if not properly trained. So when you think of getting a dog, you have to keep this in mind. And you definitely can’t expect other people to do what you say.
You would think this is pretty simple and everyone can follow this but entitled people think this doesn’t apply to them. At least that is what this entitled woman thought. She thought she could basically ‘ask’ her neighbours to not come out at certain times of the day so her untrained pitbull could run free. I don’t know about you but that doesn’t seem fair to me. You can read the whole scenario in her own words by scrolling below. Don’t forget to grab some popcorn because this is going to be a wild ride.
And so the story starts.
It sounds like a normal situation at first, I mean many dogs like to bark all the time.
So rather than training the dog to not bark, this woman thought she could ask her neighbours to just not come outside.
She didn’t have any right to get angry but she thought she was entitled to do that.
And then she came to Reddit to ask strangers whether she was in the right.
I am well aware that not every dog can be trained and you have to expect barking when it comes to a dog. I mean some dog breeds are much easier to train than others but you can’t expect that everything revolves around you and your pet, no matter how special your pet may be for you. Everyone has their own life and could care less about your schedule.
As you can probably imagine, people in the comments were not on her side.
Sounds pretty weird, doesn’t it?
Imagine going house hunting, and your thoughts are not on things like “are there good schools nearby?” “Is it close to work?” “Is there a 24hr store within 5 mins for that 2 am insomniac chocolate bar run?”
But centred on “what neighbours have which type of animals? I’m gonna have to build a dog-proof and horse proof fence, oh shit there’s someone with 3 cats 2 blocks over, better get that anti-cat stuff for the top of it. No one’s allowed giraffes in the city limits, right? Better look that up, just in case.” –idwthis
That is what normal people do but not this woman, apparently.
It is not the neighbour’s job to do anything this woman asks them to do.
What surprises me the most is that she doesn’t understand how ridiculous her ‘request’ is.
It doesn’t sound like she cares and probably does this kind of thing often.
If she doesn’t like him barking all the time then she should train the doggo.
Training the dog is what a decent person would do.
How would you deal with a neighbour who came to your home asking something ridiculous like this? Would you shut the door in their face? Comment down below and let us know. And don’t forget to share this article with your friends as well.
