(East Grinstead Courier)   Wilson the dog was rushed to the vets after his owner thought he had swallowed a single golf ball. But when they x-rayed him they found more than they bargained for. No wonder he was feeling under par   (eastgrinsteadcourier.co.uk ) divider line

fluffy2097: Labs are dumb, and if you don't train them properly, they will eat rocks, golf balls, and damn near anything else.

They will also chew on rocks and break their teeth.

If you have a dumb dog, or one that misbehaves, watch a few episodes of the dog whisperer, and try some of his techniques. They really do work (Don't go trying that shiat on crazy dogs, just nice dumb ones. crazy angry dogs are much more difficult to deal with).


I'm all about training our dogs, but screw the "dog whisperer". He is an idiot, he has no actual training education and he doesn't base his methods on well established science. In fact, he bases his training methods on very common but dis-proven misconceptions. If you compare his techniques in his oldest shows with his newest shows you will notice how he has attempted to integrate more positive reinforcement techniques. I appreciate his love of helping dogs and trying to get dogs exercise, but many of his actual training techniques (especially for aggressive dogs) are straight up dangerous to simply not as effective as another training method would be.

There are thousands of dog trainers that have infinitely better methods. This guy is my favorite as far as instructional videos go:

If you really want to train your dog you'll read at least half of a book by someone like Karen Pryor, Patricia McConnell, Pat Miller, or Sophia Yin.

/sorry but someone who advocates terrifying your dog by forcing him to roll over when he is already terrified and is barking at another dog because he is terrified (of that dog) is just a farking idiot. You know what that does? It ruins any trust and relationship there was between you and your dog. It might make your dog stop his behavior of barking at other dogs- but it won't fix his fear. That means that your dog will, without warning, attempt to lunge at or attack other dogs with no warning (which is what barking was in the first place).

Most labs are simply always hungry, never satisfied. Mine once ate half a bag of dog food, she looked pregnant after that. The worst thing she ever ate was nylon stockings. Luckily she threw them up a few days later, the vet said those can be really tricky to get out because you have to cut open a long section of intestine instead of just one spot.

My mutt used to eat rocks, but he's part Rhodesian ridgeback, which are renowned for their stupidity.

/Our trainer told us that they were bred for big game hunting, so being dumb is a feature, otherwise they'd just stay the fark home.

My Brother's lab/husky mix used to just chomp off big sections of drywall from the corners. Also once ate an entire straw hat. His wife said she was pulling bits of straw out of his ass for a week.

abhorrent1: WTF is wrong with Labradors? It's always a lab in these stories.


Labs and Golden retrievers  are just dumb. They are also standard dogs for nuclear families. They can be trained out of this behavior if the owner cares to train their dog, but actually training your dog to sit, stay lie down, roll over, and heel, seems to have died some time in the late 80's to early 90's.

These days we just treat our dogs like humans, reward them whenever they do anything wrong, and they become dumb and develop emotional problems.

No one is surprised that it's a lab. A friend's lab ate rocks from around their pool.

My mutt is much more sensible although, he did eat a corn cob once. Didn't seem to bother him at all.

You can't name your dog "Your Mom" and then not expect him to constantly have balls in his mouth
