Dogs are supposed to be man's best friend, so what's the deal with chewing up the couch? Doesn't seem like something a best friend would do. I know for a fact my best friend Gerald has never chewed up a couch. He's an accountant. So what do you do with naughty dogs? You can't break up with them, they're your pet. And a proper time-out is a lot of work. I think the best course of action is to have them write a written confession, and then post their shameful mugshot online for all the world to see. OK, you have to write the confession but besides that it's still a good way to shame naughty dogs.
