Have you ever seen a pooch with attitude? Well, in all my time that i have been pooching around, i can tell you that your dog does get angry at you sometimes and will give you the doggy cold shoulder, it may not last as long as when a human does it because Dogs just don't know how to hold a grudge, it's not in them, they just protest for a while and later on end up licking your face, begging to be petted and simply cuddling beside you. So here are the top five reasons your dog may just give you the cold shoulder.
- You Changed Their Favorite Food
What! No you did not! Hey, you can't just go around changing your dog's favorite food and thing that things will just be all good between you and your doggy pal. How would you like to be expecting a nice bowl of mac and cheese only to be served mac and butter? Your dogs do have a taste and do prefer the taste of some dog food over another. The dog will give you the cold shoulder by simply walking away from his filled food bowl and go mope. When you call him he will just sit there staring at you until he gets back his favorite chow. Lesson to be learned, consult your dog before changing his food.
- Replaced His Favorite Toy
After years of chewing on Mr. Dumbles, you finally decide that Mr. Dumbles needs to be changed with a new toy. You take away Mr. Dumbles and replace it with a dandy fancy spinning gadget. Your dog looks at it and boxes it away with his paw and goes in a frenzy trying to find his favorite toy to chew on, Mr. Dumbles. He cannot find his toy and comes running to you barking, in his own language, he is asking what the heck have you done with Mr, Dumbles. You confess that you have dumped Mr. Dumbles and has replaced it with a shiny spinnig toy. Your pooch mopes and walks away, giving you the cold shoulder for ridding him of his favorite toy.
- He Want's To Keep Dirty
If you have a dog that simply hates when it's bath time you can rest assured that he will do everything possible not to take one. He will run, bark, hide and even play opossum if he has to. Once he sees you doing all the prepping for the bath, getting his shampoo, brush and towel, he knows what's up and no matter how you try to get him to come, he will never go to you. Not even doggy treats will work, he will look at you pitiful and simply give you a cold shoulder.
- You Will Not Let Him Chow On The Post Man
I have no idea why dogs seem to have a thing for the postal service. It is as though there is a doggy headquarters somewhere sending out subliminal messages to dogs across the would telling them to look out for anyone placing mails in the mail box and go get them. Dogs hate when their owners call them away from a good mailman chase. Your dog will be very upset that you did not make him complete his mission.
- You Interrupted His Puppy Making Time
So you have dogs that are not neutered. Well, guess what, they will do what all animals do to keep their species going. They will mate and reproduce. You can't see your dogs going at it and then telling them no mating and getting in between all that doggy action. N one likes to be interrupted when they are shooting rockets and erupting volcanoes. I am sure your dog will be pretty mad at you and may just not bark at you for days.
