Feel free to add your own


Here's my number 1.
Given to all basset owner/trainers when the dog goes off sniffing

You gotta be more interesting than the ground/dirt.

nothing like stating the obvious without giving any concrete step on how to do it

Looking to from other with more useless advice.

Number 2. "It's not how you train your dog, it's the quality of the relationship". What does this *mean*, for heaven's sake?

"Three dog night"

I think that means a night so cold it takes three dogs to warm up the bed.

Actually, Betsy, 'three dog night' is great advice in the winter. Around here, it's been so cold we could have used a whole hunting pack, but the two we have are sure useful. :D

You can't teach an old dog new tricks.

Not so much advice, more of a quote: "A Basset Hound has skin that looks like it should have more dog in it" :D

"Lying like a dog" (as in, not telling the truth) is one of my husband's favorites. LOL I think he says that because George will insist he's hungry or hasn't been out or has been shamefully neglected ALL DAY to the one of us who just got home, when the one who's BEEN home knows darned well it ain't true. :D

You have to stop your dog from barking. But no one tells you how you achieve this miracle grrrrrr... Or even worse they offer ways to stop them, have you tried this? that? and the other. OF COURSE I HAVE!!

Wow didn't know I had so much anger LOL!

Barbara, hair of the dog that bit you is a remedy I've used more then I care to admit.

As far as dog day afternoon, when the "dog days" hit look to see where the dog sleeps, that is the coolest place in the house.

Useless advise is hearing, "give the dog a quick leash correction so he feels it." Then in the breath the trainer says, "look at your dogs build, he doesn't feel anything."
