OMG! That is ADORABLE!
We taught our dogs "Unbutt my chair" cause that is what my Dad used to say to us kids if'n we were in his recliner.
Tho, I'm sure my dogs wouldn't be nearly as cute if they didn't want to get down.
 
2012-10-05 06:56:57 AM  
Cute.

Ineffective human, but cute. Dog doesn't view her as pack leader. He sees it as playful interaction, not a command.

I love Mastiff and that video is classic behavior for them. Most of them think they are lap dogs
CSS - We were fostering a Mastiff about that size a few years back. Lovable but very stubborn. One day I woke up from a nap and he was snuggled up next to me with his head on Mr.S's pillow, snoring away. Cute.

I put my headphones on at work and started to watch. Then I moved my chair back and it popped the headphone cord out and loudly broadcasted the woman yelling and the dog replying "YOU GET OFF THE BED-euggghhhhhhh!!!!"

No, I'm not watching porn but it sure sounded like it.

I hope that's not a daily problem, that would get annoying after a while. And, I'm the farking boss of the house, dog, don't even think different!

I'm still not sure what I would do in that situation, probably just crawl in bed with the dog and try to make space.
 
2012-10-05 08:32:31 AM  
Seems almost like it was trained to do that upon sight of the hand signal. Still cute.

You can either assert yourself and tell the dog firmly and in no uncertain terms to get off the farking bed or you can get a dog biscuit and lure it off the bed.

That is clearly an undisciplined dog that was never trained properly and the mastiff hasn't been either.

People that completely ineffective at controlling their dog should be allowed to have only the sub-dog varietals, such as Pomeranians and dachshunds. Not the ones that can actually cause damage to others.

Those are two of the breeds that are most likely to bite someone. Evil dogs/

Yes, but when they bite you, you can kick them across the yard. You can't do that with a real dog.

So bite them back.

I'm impressed at all of the expert dog trainers we have on fark, that have never had their dog ignore them in favor of staying somewhere comfy. You all should have a show.
 
2012-10-05 09:47:01 AM  
You have to be the alpha dog in this situation and outlounge the pooch.  Once it sees there is no way it can be more relaxed then you, you can slooooowly and ever so sleepily put it into a choke hold. 
 
2012-10-05 09:48:14 AM  
You can move a mountain, but you just can't budge a big dog.

Use the dog as a pillow and drap yourself over it! Stay in that position until the dog gets annoyed and walks off.
 
2012-10-05 10:03:02 AM  
That dog was wagging its tail -- he could tell by the tone of her voice she wasn't really serious. There are probably other times when she truly shrieks at him and he launches out of the bed with his tail between his legs.

I agree. It seemed like they were both playing a game.

Where I come from, most bedrooms have DOORS. If you don't want the dog on the bed, try shutting it.

And yes, I know Mastiffs are big dogs. I used to live with a roommate that had a big, slobbery, loveable English Mastiff that was even bigger than this one. But even at her most defiant, she didn't have the opposable thumbs necessary to work the bloody doorknob.

Squirt bottle

and if that doesn't work:

Squirt bottle with water and one teaspoon of vinegar.

Results: The dog will get off the bed on the first request.
 
2012-10-05 11:22:28 AM  
I love that dog. We can't have a dog because my wife has serious allergies to dander so we're dogless. Dammit.
 
2012-10-05 11:22:52 AM  
Squirt bottle hell... bullets are much more effective.

If the dog in fact doesn't listen [which I don't believe is happening in this case] then I'd just get rid of it.
 
2012-10-05 11:27:29 AM  
Repeating commands and being cute is a great way to undermine your authority and affirm the dog's behavior. Get a Golden Retriever if you want 'big' dog thats easy to train
 
2012-10-05 11:30:15 AM  
As fair as 'just playing a game', i've seen tons of people who try to tell a dog what to do in just this manner. It's more likely that its not her dog.
 
2012-10-05 11:31:54 AM  
That dog may have been wagging its tail, but his play-growling made me nervous. But I'll be the first to admit that I would never be able to handle anything bigger than a lab. And hey, don't knock the small dogs. My aunt has an amazing Jack Russell, and my family recently took in a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua cross who is most definitely a dog in spite of her diminutive size. (She's a sweetheart.)
 
2012-10-05 11:36:42 AM  
All I have to do now is just get the squirt bottle out of the cabinet and my dogs somehow miraculously understand english again.

Crushing a dog with a huge manatee is a misdemeanor.

2 Irish Wolfhounds at home. They get like this every so often. fark it. Let em' sleep. If I really need them to get up, jingling the car keys works like a charm.

Cool...but um, how do you get the dog to put the teaspoon of vinegar in the bottle?
 
2012-10-05 11:46:22 AM  
Lady, you have to be alpha dog. Pooch gets one chance, then is physically dragged to where you want him. If you can't move the dog, you shouldn't have a frickin mastiff.
 
2012-10-05 11:54:33 AM  
And then she scratches his ears and reinforces the bad behavior. OMG.

My dog gets one chance. If my voice then drops down, she understands it's no longer play time.

/150# Great Dane. *not* allowed on the bed.

gee, if the link was to the YouTube vid: "Waking Up an English Mastiff... ", Uploaded by mouseanater on Feb 11, 2012

people could see the uploader's comment:

"This is my Mastiff Lincoln doing everything he can to NOT have to get off the bed. THIS IS JUST PLAY, IF I ASK HIM TO GET OFF THE BED STERNLY HE WILL JUMP RIGHT OFF, Lets keep the animal training comments to a minimum!! I REPEAT WE ARE PLLAAYYYIINNNG."

Cesar Millan disapproves!
That woman is no pack leader! She's encouraging bad behaviour by petting him when he's misbehaving.
 
2012-10-05 12:27:16 PM  
When I'm in a mood, I hate repeating myself. This is something my German Shepherd learned very quickly.

This lady was playing with the dog, and the dog was playing with her.

Nah, Mastiffs make that sound when playing a lot. Mine does. Well, mine also tries to talk. When I come home from work she runs downstairs, grabs either her bone or one of her toys, runs back up and throws her entire 160 pound body against my legs all the while she moaning and growling and vocalizing like crazy.

She's awesome.

Mastiffs also make awesome pillows

You know, just because you're the pack leader doesn't mean the dog's free will goes away. My two malamutes are well trained, but I can still them taking a second to process the command and go "Do I really want to do that?". Malamutes for example were bred not to run out onto thin ice, not matter what command was given. A lot of other breeds with established traits are the same way. You can tell a rottweiler that the stranger is a guest and is welcome, but odds are he's still going to be watching the stranger like a hawk and commands to leave the room while the stranger is there are unlikely to be obeyed the first time they're given.

/I'm pretty sure if I busted the spray bottle on the malamutes i'd get the look of "Please motherfarker, we swim in near freezing water for fun. Try again bozo."

I believe you, but that doesn't change the fact that mastiff play growls apparently make me nervous even if I'm just hearing them on a YouTube video. Not everyone is a big dog person.
 
2012-10-05 01:30:32 PM  
God, those pillows must absolutely reek of dog farts.
 
2012-10-05 01:31:26 PM  
I love how she not only starts to play with the dog, which is what it wanted, but then scratches its head and rewards it for ignoring her...

You know why you have to go through that every day? Because you're terrible at owning a dog.

Dane owner here (205lb baby pic in profile). Dane's share blood lines with mastiff's and carry many similar characteristics. They too believe they are lap dogs. The morning yawns awakens everyone in the house. And when he gets comfortable, there is no moving him with any sense of urgency. All the same, having a dog that is closer to livestock rather than a canine is entertaining in itself.
 
2012-10-05 01:35:21 PM  
The circuit for that outlet on the wall by the bed is seriously overloaded, so they'll all be dead soon anyway.

yeah, this looks a lot less like disobedience and more like intentionally trained behavior.
 
2012-10-05 02:16:39 PM  
Get the dog his own bed, something as comfortable as the bed he likes. Then after a while he'll keep to his place to sleep.

desertmouse: That dog was wagging its tail -- he could tell by the tone of her voice she wasn't really serious.


A dog wagging its tail is a sign that it perceives one of the parties is asserting/challenging domination, not specifically that its play time. It just so happens that play time is a form of the same kind of assertion/challenge.

Its a perfect time to explain who is boss.

Canton: And hey, don't knock the small dogs. My aunt has an amazing Jack Russell,


Jack Russell's aren't small dogs. Just ask them.
 
2012-10-05 02:26:48 PM  
addendum to my previous post:

That dog was challenging her domination, no doubt. It very much wants to be the boss and thinks it has a chance. It certainly seems like she should be trained in how to handle her dog.
