Today we stopped in at petco, just to see the animals in for adoption today. I was sitting on the floor loving on a lab mix puppy that was brought back to them, too rambunctious for the family. The pup was very mouthy but not out of control. When I went to pet it, it mouthed, I slowly pulled my hand back, said 'ah ah' then went to pet again. It didn't mouth me again. The lady bent down, grabbed its muzzle tightly, shook its head & told it no. by the 4th time I told her to stop abusing it, its just a baby that was obviously too young from its mom. She snapped at me that its mom died, I told her its no reason to be mean, not a proper way to teach it. She said she had shown at akc level before, I told her 'I'm happy for you, but it has nothing to do with correct training & to stopmistreating the pup'. I was so mad! Hubby said he noticed it too & was glad I said something, he was busy chatting with someone.
