Serving Marion, Indiana & Surrounding Areas My mission with Canine Connoisseur is not only to “train dogs”, but to rehabilitate and ultimately fulfill as many dogs that come my way while also advocating and spreading awareness for Dog Psychology.

Far too many dogs are deemed unfit for society and then destroyed, due to behavior issues stemming from Human Error and our lack of understanding for Dog Psychology. Through Canine Connoisseur, I aim to educate owners on the “Why?” behind their dog’s behaviors, as well as how to properly reinforce, prevent, manage, correct, and extinguish those behaviors. Once you have an understanding of the “Why

Memes are social media fun. They are visual, clickable, and good for a laugh. As advocates, a fun meme can drive a point home in a way that an article or wordy post may not.

But sometimes memes come across our radar and make us a bit uncomfortable. People will tell us that we are overthinking things, and find them funny even if they aren’t totally accurate or on-message. There’s one that went around recently that made us a bit uncomfortable:

The post had the title of “most aggressive dog breeds ranked”. Then the numbers 14-2 consisted of the message “you…can’t…rank…them….because…aggression…isn’t…breed….specific…it’s…a….learned….behaviour”. Under the #1 spot it listed “chihuahuas”.

This was shared widely, and we understand why. There are lots of clickbait lists out there that purport to list the most aggressive breeds. Anyone who knows about dog behaviour knows that a list like this is pseudoscience. While aggression might be present in some breed standards, the majority of dogs around us are mixed breeds and a very low percentage of them are bred to a standard.

There’s also no agreed-upon benchmark for aggression. Do you count threatening or unfriendly instances of behaviour? Behaviour to strangers? Behaviour to animals? Bites? All of these are contextual and predicted by a number of factors that don’t include breed.

The meme was mocking these “most dangerous breed” articles, which is a fair criticism! But it makes two other statements that aren’t quite accurate or fair:

1) Aggressive behaviour is not necessarily learned behaviour. It can be, but just as with humans, dogs are born with a certain personality types and predispositions. There are plenty of owners who have had their dog since puppyhood and have done all the right things, but the individual genetics of their dog predispose it to aggressive behaviour.

2) Chihuahuas. Sigh. We know it’s a joke, and we know it can be frustrating when the standard of ownership/behaviour seems lower for small dogs. But if we are trying to communicate to the world that all dogs are individuals, then all breeds deserve the same benefit of the doubt. As tempting as it can be sometimes, let’s not throw other breeds under the bus.

We propose this meme instead! What do you think? Can it get the same number of shares?

1) You
2) Can’t
3) Rank
4) Them
5) Because
6) Aggression
