A DOG EXPERT has revealed the worst behaved dogs he’s had to work with and his first choice left people stunned.
Will Atherton, a dog behaviorist, has revealed the two naughtiest dogs he’s worked with.
In a recent TikTok video, Will said: “As a dog behaviorist, I specialize in working with dogs when things are going horribly wrong.
“And that’s why I keep seeing the same breeds popping up showing the same negative behaviors.”
The first breed of dog that Will raised so badly is the Cocker Spaniel.
But not just any species, Will points out that it’s always a working line Cocker Spaniel — especially in the wrong environment.
The canine expert added: “Probably the number one breed that people get for the wrong reasons.
“They bring in this dog that was bred to do a job and work in the field all day and expect him to be a couch potato.”
The canine expert said this could lead to reactivity such as barking, pulling (on the leash), resource guarding and terrible recall.
The next dog breed with the worst behavior is the Cane Corso.
Though it’s one of the dog expert’s favorite breeds, he said people often get it for the wrong reasons – which leads to the dogs misbehaving.
He added, “People get them for the wrong reason, without the required time, dedication or experience leading them to have the bad reputation of aggressive, reactive dogs.”
Viewers quickly took to the video’s comments section to share their thoughts.
One wrote: “As a working Cocker Spaniel owner, I agree with what you say, except to remind you that they are the easiest dogs on earth to train!”
Another person commented, “Totally agree Cane Corso got two of them.”
A third wrote: “There is no such thing as ‘a badly behaved dog.’ It’s all in the training.”
