I am a dog handler – I wish inexperienced owners would stop buying certain breeds, they become violent

THE idea of ​​having a four-legged furry companion is a little different than the responsibilities of owning a dog.

One experienced handler expressed displeasure with inexperienced dog owners with certain breeds, who often become violent.

Former show dog handler Willa posted a TikTok revealing nine dog breeds she thinks new owners need to stop buying.

Not only are they dogs that require more attention, but they can also become violent if not properly groomed.

“I promise I know some of the best bred specimens of these breeds and I’m still going to tell you not to get them,” Willa says to introduce the video.

She says it’s particularly bad when a dog owner is inexperienced and lives in the city.

“The Vizsla’s are the first to get up,” Willa begins.

Because Vizslas are an athletic breed, they require special care and attention.

“It just means they’re smart, ambitious and energetic and need structural exercise and ideally some kind of work, even if it’s just a dog sport you do with them,” explains Willa.

For someone with a full-time job and living in a small town apartment, it’s harder to find the right “job” for these dogs.

“These are not dogs meant to live in a city. So if you live in a city, please don’t get one,” Willa warns viewers.

Next, she lumps Australian Shepherds and Heelers together.

Both breeds are known for herding people and other dogs.

What starts as a light nibble quickly turns into a bite.

Willa believes, “These are really, really, really not a dog for someone who works nine to five and should get someone who is young and in their twenties with very little experience of dog ownership.”

Pointers are similar to Vizslas in that they need lots of exercise, which means lots of space to run around, a job, and lots of training.

These dogs are excellent for hunting. So if you don’t leave town often to be in an open piece of land, Willa says, don’t own one.

Although this may come as a surprise, Willa explains that Dalmatians are a different breed.

“Unless you get them from a good breeder and socialize them well, they can be quite fussy and they’re also prone to urinary issues,” she says.

Willa continues, “German shepherds are working breeds; they like to do that. You won’t be happily cooped up in your 700-square-foot apartment all day.”

Dobermans are next.

Again, these dogs need structure, training, socialization, and exercise.

“These are the kind of dogs where it’s like adopting a toddler,” says Willa.

Additionally, she believes having huskies in this climate is “abusive.”

“They’re also very stubborn, which can make training very difficult and very, very noisy,” explains Willa.

Lastly, Willa adds golden doodles.

“Stop buying doodles. They are not purebred dogs. They won’t magically be hypoallergenic or free of behavioral issues because they have rennet or gold in them,” she says.

Some viewers were upset with Willa’s opinions.

One Husky owner emphasized, “As a Southern Husky owner…she loves the summer and loves to bask in the sun.

“Housing and jobs shouldn’t be a reason not to get a dog. I work 9-5 and have been in an apartment/townhouse and spend over 2 hours throughout the day,” added another commenter.

Still other viewers agreed, throwing in a few more breeds they feel shouldn’t be bought.

“Someone has to add corgis to this mix. They’re pretty, but they need plenty of exercise and a job or they can become aggressive,” noted one woman.
