3 Dog Stories That Just Happen To Be True

As man’s best friend, dogs are ripe pickings when it comes to jokes and stories. Most of us have known at least one dog in our lifetime, be it our own pet or those belonging to friends and family. When you spend a little time around a canine, you quickly realize that some of those jokes are 100% true!

The problem is, some of these issues are actually sometimes a cause for concern - indicators of behavioral problems or even signs of ill health. So which jokes are bang on the money and - most importantly - what can you do about them if they become problematic?

Dogs Attack The Mailman

On one hand, it’s hard not to see the dog’s point here. They don’t understand what’s going on; we’ve yet to figure out a way to communicate the benefits of a countrywide postal service to dogs. And if we ever do find out how to directly tell them things, it’s fair to say that that’d be pretty low on the list of priorities!

So the dog doesn’t think “oh it’s a new collection of junk mail!” when the mailman arrives, they think: “here is someone who is trying to invade my home”. Their defensive instinct kicks in, and then you wind up with statistics that confirm the common joke: almost 7,000 postal workers were attacked by dogs last year.

What Can You Do? If this is a problem for you, then the simple answer is to keep your dogs away from the front yard around the time the mailman comes. It’s not ideal, but it’s better than a lawsuit!

Dogs Chew Shoes

Many a TV show has found fodder in using this illustration. And you can’t blame them for using this in storytelling, given the fact it definitely does happen. Glance over any forum and you’ll see the same thing coming up time and again.

What Can You Do? Dogs have a natural chewing instinct, which is especially the case when they are young and their teeth are still growing. They chew on shoes because they’re convenient, often left discarded, making them incredibly tempting to an adventurous hound. By far the best option is to give them something else to chew on, be it a toy or dental sticks for dogs that can help to redirect their chomping. Oh, and keep shoes away from ground level!

Dogs Are Incredibly Friendly

Finally, a nice quote: dogs are friendly, especially when compared to cats. While that’s a little unfair on cats (who are just more naturally reserved and suspicious), the vast majority of dogs are quite willing to make friends with anyone and everything that crosses their path.

Obviously, there’s nothing you need to do about this - it’s just nice! Just ensure if your dog is very friendly that you restrain their enthusiasm around your children; some dogs just don’t know their own strength! And teach them to express their friendliness in a proper way.
