My Ozzy (Rottweiler) will not be going back. by Natalie Bravo - 04/23/2014
I have been taking my Rottweiler to Doggie Day Spaw in Meridian for about 18 months now and I usually take him every 3 months. I called in today to get an appointment and when I told the girl my name and dog's name she sounded like it was an inconvenience I asked if they could clip a little scraggleys on him and she said well you know it takes two of us to do him and I asked if it was because he is big and she said NO he has behavorial problems and is an ALPHA MALE and does not listen to them. I was shocked since no one there has ever said this before and first of all my dog is NOT an ALPHA dog and is a big teddy bear and is so submissive with us and I told her this and she said well he is not when he is here and I asked her if they use the training collar on him and she said no they use love well I know with my dog loving on him means you want to play but he in no way does he control us we have made that firm from the beginning than she asked if we socialize him and I said not really because of other viruses or diseases that he could contract and that with people he is normally only around us and she said well that's why he has behavorial problems and this dog is afraid of his own shadow but he is not a big chicken or anything like that and that he is a big playful teddy bear and listens to us with no problems. I asked her if I could watch while they bathe him to see what the problems were and she said NO. When I have taken him there and I go to pick him up the lady always has nothing but nice things to say about him but I guess they were all lies.
