    You’re overreacting, calm down momma bear

    Ask them to clarify on report and switch vets

    Stay with the same vet if he clarified the report for you

    i dont understand why this is such a big issue. It was noted in some random vet file, it doesnt seem like its going to dramatically affect your dogs life. If you can still enroll him in dog training classes, take him to parks, etc. I dont know how doggy daycare works, so maybe they would be the only ones who would look at a vet file??

    All a doggy daycare or training class would ask to see is verification of vaccines.

    sassy411 :  My grandparents had a German shepherd and he was the most intelligent dog. Your comment

    Without steady employment, they invent their own career

    Made me laugh so hard because it is true. My grandparents GSD knew it was doing something naughty but would do it anyway and then he’d either go sit in the same spot and cover his eyes with his paws like he was ashamed of his behavior or he’d jump a fence and make his way to my grandma’s brothers house down the road!!  My great uncle would then call his sister and say your dog must of done something naughty because he’s here.

    My grandparents spent a lot of time trying to train him but it was the 70s and I don’t think so much information was available about specific dog breeds and how to train them. He was a fabulous dog but by the time I was around he was an old man and much less active.

    I think any teachers/coaches of any future children of yours are going to have their hands full.

    As nurses we write down the littlest thing sometimes because it’s a good record for future assessments.  Lots of people can excuse something as a one off, and we could believe them, but still write it down.  Being thorough is an asset it the medical field, I’d be more concerned if he didn’t.

    You’re making a point that the vet didn’t discuss the “behavioral issue” note with you….but you did discuss training so you did discuss behavioral issues. 

    Your vet isn’t going to go over exactly what’s in the medical record word for word. 

    You’re being very unreasonable. 

    If you feel uncomfortable with your  vet you should totally change vets. There’s nothing wrong with shopping around and finding someone who works well with both you and your pupper.

    Don’t expect to be able to proof read their notes elsewhere though.
