Help! I have two good friends who adopted a labrapoodle over a year ago. The 80+ lbs.dog is a year and a half old and is the most badly behaved dog I have ever met... Guests are greeted by her barks and are immediately attacked. 'Puppy' scratches or chews on our shoes, places her huge paws on our chest, constantly sniffs our private parts , eats out of our plate if we are not careful and jumps on our lap if we are sitting in the living room. Puppy loves chewing on furniture: dining room table, couch, end tables, chairs, walls, etc. How can my other friend and I tell the owners that there is a problem? We both love to hang out with our friends, but we are so uncomfortable when we visit because of their dog and they just love to entertain and are otherwise, great hosts. The owners do not see a problem with their dog and we do. This evening when my friend showed the owners her bruises from this past weekend, they said, 'they look like a paw! Sorry!' Another friend loaned them the Cesar Milan tapes and they said he was fake. They also took Puppy to a pet store school a while back, but dropped out for some reason. We just can't take this anymore and we sincerely do not know how to tell them. They treat Puppy as their child and are very protective and giving: they had a one year birthday party for her and we all wore party hats and saw how Puppy enjoyed her doggy cake. ush: Are we being too sensitive? Will they be offended if I buy them a gift certificate to classes given by a dog trainer?
