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.

Get Educated. The first step to being an outstanding pet owner, according to Dr. Becker, is taking responsibility. “Nobody ever says ‘I was a lousy pet owner.’ It’s always the pet’s fault.” Learn the peculiarities of your pet’s breed such as how much exercise they need, how gregarious they are, how much maintenance their coat requires, how often they need to go outside, and about new technologies, products, and nutrition that might help you care for your pet. Knowing the basics about your pet’s upkeep ensures you won’t be caught off guard by troubling behavior.

The TikToker, chillicheesechelsea, captioned her video with a disclaimer warning her audience not to take the video too seriously.

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.

Love your pet. You are your pet’s favorite thing in the whole world. He craves your love, attention and care. So show him the love and devotion he shows you!

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.”

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.

Apparently, dogs can be trained to use a scratching post just like cats! Get the directions for how to build a giant dog nail file here.

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.”

Doodles are mixes between poodles and any other breeds of dog. Labradoodles and Goldendoodles are extremely popular as they don’t shed much fur.

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.

Stay consistent with training, play time and rest time for your pets so they don’t get too overwhelmed. Your calm and consistent demeanor will help your pet to understand that they can trust you. Once you earn their trust, understand the schedule, and feel secure in their safe place, both of your lives will be much easier.

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.
