Redditors Share The Embarrassing Moments Of Having A Dog, And Here Are The Worst Moments

Many scientific studies have shown that dogs don’t really feel shame. Therefore, when your dog does something silly and crazy, you are the only one who feels embarrassed about what they did. Having a dog can be so embarrassing sometimes, but don’t punish them or hate them. They are just animals who don’t know the difference between right and wrong. Punishing them will do nothing but create resentment and fear.

A Reddit user called u/Lucille2214 started a thread about the embarrassing moments of having a dog, and others quickly replied with the worst moments. Scroll down to check for yourself! 

Here are the worst moments the original poster shared:

  • Dog licking crotch/asshole in front of people
  • Dog taking a fat shit on the sidewalk/in someone’s yard in public
  • Trying to show people how obedient your dog is and your dog doesn’t listen AT ALL in front of them
  • Chasing your dog down the street
  • Your dog messing/breaking something in someone else’s house
  • Dog’s red lipstick showing in front of people
  • Your dog starts humping something/someone
  • Your dog barking/ going crazy in public

Here’s how Redditors responded to the post:

Molly Sumridge, a certified dog behavior consultant and trainer, and founder of Kindred Companions in Frenchtown, NJ, believes we need more science and research to answer the question “Can dogs feel embarrassed?”

“I don’t think we’re there yet, scientifically or behaviorally. Too often, broad assumptions are made about complex emotions, when it’s really not that simple. Trying to discern what is embarrassment versus fear, discomfort, or anxiety is extremely hard. These are complex emotions and all we can go on is a cause and effect relationship between the environment and the dog’s behavior,” Sumridge said.

Dr. Terri Bright, director of behavior services in the Behavior Department at MSPCA/Angell in Boston, MA, agrees with Sumridge.

“For a dog to feel embarrassment, they would need to possess an overall sense of social norms and morals, which they don’t have the same way humans do,” Bright shared.

“Since dogs can’t tell us how they feel, we infer their emotions by watching their body language,” she continued. “Some dogs inherit and/or learn ‘appeasement’ signals, such as yawning and head-turning, which may be described by humans as being embarrassed.”

We are sure that nobody wants to talk about their embarrassing moments, and they want to forget them. But don’t worry because these moments happen to us all. Instead of avoiding talking about them, coping with them in a healthy way can help shake off shame a little faster. So in this post, feel free to share the embarrassing moments you experienced when owning a dog.
