A former pet industry worker sparked debate by warning people not to adopt five unexpected dog breeds in a video which amassed seven million views. Many took to the comments to defend their dog breed while others agreed with her controversial opinions.
The TikToker, chillicheesechelsea, captioned her video with a disclaimer warning her audience not to take the video too seriously.
Americans love dogs! 62% of U.S. households own a pet, which equates to 72.9 million homes
She said: “I love these breeds but I don’t want to own one of my own. Don’t come for me doodle moms…IT’S JUST MY OPINION!!!!.”The first breed in her crosshairs was the oft adored Husky. The breed has thick fur and must be brushed regularly to keep their coats healthy.
She claimed Huskies were “completely unhinged and always screaming”. Some in the comments agreed with her assessment.
Use a Front Clip Harness to Prevent Pulling on Leash. If your dog pulls on his leash get a harness that clips in the front. The harnesses that clip on the back promote more pulling. And when you’re working on leash manners ditch the retractable leash for a regular 6 foot one so your dog can get the feeling of what loose leash walking means.
One woman said: “I didn’t understand the husky hate [until] I house and pet sat for a friend. That damn dog was singing me the song of their people at 5 am every day.”A former pet industry worker has stirred up controversy by naming five breeds she would never own.

She said: “Always the most anxious and FOR WHAT.”German Shepherds were bred as guard dogs, a trait which often leaves them anxious.The next breed on the list was the Samoyed which she called the “fun police” due to their “non stop barking”. Samoyeds are relatively high energy and playful dogs - something that tends to lead to a lot of barking. They are known for their striking fluffy white coats.
One user defended their Samoyed but conceded that they can be quite loud.READ MORE: Platinum Jubilee could have caused new Covid waveAlsatians can be a bit anxious as they were bred as guard dogs.

Always be consistent. Half-assed efforts will deliver half-assed results. Consistency is the key to success in all endeavors in life. Training a dog is no different. Learning about your dog is also a consistent effort. Quality time with your dog should be consistent and ongoing.
They said: “My Samoyed is so quiet at home, but when we go out somewhere w/ him he whines & yips. RIP to the ears of vets & groomers lol.”
Perhaps the most controversial pick on the list was “literally ANY doodle mix”.
The social media user called out owners who “don’t know how to handle their energy” making them “out of control demons”. She also bemoaned the “matted” fur of every doodle mix she had ever worked with.

Doodle owners flooded the comments defending their breed.
One user claimed: “Doodles are literally the sweetest and best dogs ever.”
Another added: “Our doodle is literally one of the best dogs I’ve ever had. As long as you actually take care of them they are literally the sweetest dogs ever.”
Others agreed that the owners were to blame for their dogs’ rambunctiousness.
One said: “Doodle owners are the kind of parents who’d say ‘oh, he’d NEVER! He is the sweetest kid!’ In response to their child punching a classmate.”

Care for your pet. Regular visits to the vet and groomer are absolutely necessary. Insuring your pet may also be important to your pet’s health. Emergencies can happen at any time. Ensure your pet gets the help he needs no matter the cost with pet insurance.
The final breed on the controversial list was not a breed at all but any type of “small white dog with crusty eyes”.
She called them “crusty little ankle biters”.Dogs like Shih Tzus and Malteses are known for having problems with their eyes, leading to a crusty appearance.
Train your dog for a lifetime of obedience. Behavior problems are the number one reason dogs are relinquished to animal shelters, the number one reason they don’t find new forever homes, and as a result, the number one reason dogs are euthanized.
There are many different causes for eye issues in dogs and vets recommend using cotton balls with a little saline solution to gently remove crust from a dog’s eyes.The TikTok user has since released a "part 2" video where she takes aim at Yorkshire terriers, Australian Shepherds, Corgis, French Bulldogs and Great Danes.
