I’ve been reading numerous articles lately about inconsiderate dog owners. All those rants and open letters made me realize that we focus a lot on how well our dogs behave, but not so much on how well we behave as dog owners. So, I’ve taken some common complaints and turned them into a quiz to see just how mannerly we are as pet parents. To check your dog etiquette and see how you compare to other dog owners, just click the ‘Start Quiz’ button below.

How did you do? After taking the quiz myself, it looks like I have a few things to work on. There have been more than a few door-to-door salesmen that Haley’s surprised by bolting out the front door and she gets pretty excited when guests arrive for a party, especially my parents who usually have a few treats hidden in their pockets for her. I guess there are always things to work on and room for improvement when it comes to petiquette.
Post your score in the comments below if you’ve earned bragging rights and share a few of your own rants about dog owners if I missed highlighting them in the quiz.
