What is the Best Class a Dog Owner Can Take? Well, Dogshaming 101, of course! And we’re more than willing to deliver the course, serving up some key dog shaming techniques.
There are many cultures around the world that believe in the fine art of shaming. Obviously, in shaming, a person has to do something humiliating with the purpose of teaching a valuable lesson. However, would this really work for a dog? Does making your dog do something embarrassing for the purpose of making him/her feel shame really teach the lesson it is supposed to? Do dogs really care what the world thinks of them? And for that matter, do they really care what you think of them? What if the shaming isn’t really supposed to teach the dog anything, but meant to teach the owner a lesson. Still, what would that lesson be? Humor? Forgiveness? Or could it simply be not to judge a dog for being a dog?
Regardless of the lesson, dog shaming is quite easy. First, you will need a dog. Then, the next obvious thing is a camera. Lastly, a makeshift sign. But these ingredients together will mostly likely only produce an average shaming picture. If you want your dog to truly stand out, you need to add a dash of creativity. After all, Dogs really only do a finite number of mischievous things to shame them over. So for the most part, try not to be generic, and aim instead for specificity and uniqueness.
Which sign would be funnier?
I eat money. Or…
I ate a fifty and I didn’t give change.
I like to hump legs. Or…
I’m on a first name basis with every pair of pants in this house.
I bark for no reason. Or…
I bark when I want to bark and I don’t owe anyone an explanation.
Let’s face it Dog Shaming is really about the owner. Sure you need a dog for it; but every dog has it’s quirks and so does every human.
