Personally, I HATE when people let their dogs out of a door as soon as it opens. I have my dog sit and wait for a minute or two whenever a door opens; I don't ever let him rush out. It creates situations where a dog will just push past you and possibly escape and run off. More than I dislike people who let their friendly dogs offleash, I dislike it when people walk their aggressive dogs anywhere in public without at least trying to train it to tolerate other dogs. After looking around, I learned — I worked at a Petco for about 4 years and I have stories about every type of bad dog behavior that has happened because owners simply did not take the time to do research on their animal or take the time to correct the bad behavior with simple methods. Dogs that bark extremely loudly and non-stop the entire time they are in the store are probably the worst. why they bring them in the store every time I could not tell you, but this one husky would come in and bark non-stop at any and everything while he was in the store and the owners would walk around lazily while making everyone in the store deaf with the loud barking. Or larger dogs with no sense of how big they are that would knock over children or adults even or jump up on people and push them over or just being a pain/obnoxious and the owners would do nothing about it but say "oohhh he likes you, sorry about that, he's too big to stop." Pet owners that would allow their dogs to urinate or poop or vomit on the floor of the store and then deny it was their dog that did it and lie to my face and say that they let their dog go the bathroom outside on the grass when I watched their dog take a dump right next to a display of dog food. I don't mind cleaning up poop, it was my job, but lying to my face about it is out of line. Dogs that acted aggressively towards anyone because they were not properly socialized to be around people. Most of them had lazy owners that did not do the research needed to keep a dog and then again failed to correct the behavior with proper socialization with humans and other animals outside of their immediate home. These are the kinds of dogs that would come into the store and immediately start aggressively barking and biting any other dog that would come near, or any child that approached that was just trying to pet the dog. again, why they would bring these dogs into the store where we have at least 10 other animals (dogs, cats, birds, etc) roaming around at any given time I will never understand. we had an amazing dog trainer there that charged very little and could do magic with even the worst trained animals and everytime I saw these people I would recommend they take them there but they got offended that I would say that their dog was being "bad" and walk out in a huff. its ridiculous. PLEASE anytime you buy a dog do research for at least a week before you buy an animal that you will have for upwards of 15+ years. Treat them just like you would your own child. unfortunately most people treat dogs like a toy that gets neglected after a few years and suffers horribly for it. edit: this is another non-dog behavior but it is a HUGE peeve of mine. I have a neighbor with a dalmatian that is , like most dalmatians, a bit aggressive. they have young children so what do they do? They leave him OUTSIDE ALL WINTER AND SUMMER LONG. I have seen this dog standing in 2ft of snow after tunneling out of its blocked igloo and barking frantically for someone to help it or feed it.
